Airbus partner Bombardier gets favorable ruling from trade commission

"The fact that it was overturned not by two, not by three but by four unanimously, we're just ecstatic, we're happy, we couldn't have asked for a better result". On Tuesday, the administration imposed tariffs on imported solar-energy components and large washing machines.

The aircraft decision ruling paves the way for Bombardier to begin deliveries of Canadian-built CS100 jets to Delta this year.

The move will come as a relief to thousands workers in Belfast, where the C-Series wings are produced.

The CSeries programme directly supports 1,000 workers or 25 per cent of Bombardier's total workforce in the North.

TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady said: "This is great news for thousands of Bombardier workers, as well as workers in their supply chain".

For Bombardier, and Airbus, Moore said he thinks this means they'll sell a lot of C Series planes in the U.S.

Bombardier has said Boeing's case has no merit and that its actual intent is to force Bombardier out of the 100-seat market as it looks to acquire a competing maker of small jets.

In key testimony before the ITC past year, Greg May, senior vice president of fleet and supply-chain management at Delta, said, "It would be wrong to suggest that Boeing lost sales to Delta because we purchased the CS100".

Delta argued that it wasn't interested in Boeing's smallest jet, the 737 Max 7, and the USA plane maker had offered it used Brazilian regional jets.

Member Of Anti-Muslim Party In Germany Resigns, Converts To Islam
It argued that increasing the number of Muslims in the country was a danger to Germany's state, society and values. The party also once proposed the banning of new mosques being constructed in the nation.

Bombardier had argued in its final submission to the ITC that throughout the investigation, "Boeing has been forced to rely on a combination of exaggerations, shifting criteria, and pure conjectures". Global trade is also expected to be a major topic of President Trump's speech at the Davos World Economic Forum amid fears the US may spark a trade war and withdraw from Nafta. So in the days leading up to the vote, some Bombardier supporters said they expected a loss.

The US International Trade Commission voted 4-0 that there was no injury to US manufacturers, which effectively forces President Donald Trump's Commerce Department to reverse course on the retaliatory countermeasures created to protect Boeing.

Unite had led a campaign against the proposed trade tariffs, and he said the union's members and shop stewards would be delighted with the result.

A company with a commitment to build aircraft in Mobile benefited from a decision today by the U.S. International Trade Commission.

DUP MP for East Belfast Gavin Robinson said it had been a "very hard time" for the firm's 4,000 worker in Northern Ireland who had "faced an uncertain future", adding: "Bombardier's greatest strength here in Belfast is the quality of those workers and the product they deliver".

"Today's decision is a victory for innovation, competition, and the rule of law", Montreal-based Bombardier said in a press release published moments after the vote.

The Canadian government told the commission that it can't side with Boeing's "unprecedented" argument because there is no evidence that any C Series planes will be imported into the United States because the planes destined for US customers will be assembled in Alabama.

"We are extremely proud of our employees, investors and suppliers, who have worked together to bring this remarkable aircraft to the market".

"We always believed that the C Series, in order to reach its full potential, would need a very strategic partner and we do have a strategic partner in Airbus", he said.
