Still waiting

Time is running out to work a deal between Bombardier Transportation in Thunder Bay and members of Canadian Auto Workers Local Union 1075. Local Union 1075 President Dominic Pasqualino says this is not an ideal time to deal with uncertainty. Pasqualino also says its frustrating because with a strike they would lose time and fail to deliver to customers on schedule. The deadline for a new settlement is Tuesday at 4 PM. The union would strike immediately if a deal couldn't be reached. Pasqualino says he hopes the two sides can meet somewhere in the middle.
