The ü k mission faces being “crushed” by a new “stark political” trade sanction against Bombardier passenger planes, most of them built in Northern Ireland, according to the union.
Boeing said Canada’s Bombardier sold 75 C-Series passenger planes to Delta Air Lines “at ridiculously low prices” and could only obtain unlawful state support in Canada and the United Kingdom.
B oeing called for the U.S. authorities to claim that the C Series, with its small spray of 737, refuted the point-competitive behavior by Bombardier.
Unified Assistant Secretary Steve Turner said: “The decision of the U.S. Department of Commerce on the C-series tariffs is starkly political, not only in Northern Ireland but also in the United States.
“It does not make sense that Boeing did not produce a plane of the same class as the C-Series and did not even complain about the Delta contract it complained about.”
Marking Boeing’s complaint as “worthless” and “closing the cover of the U.S. market,” Turner appealed to the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) to suspend the Commerce Department decision when it heard the complaint in the next phase of February.
One round of Bombardier’s 4,000 employees in Belfast quarter – the company where the company is the largest private employer – worked on the C-series, and some fear that if tariff jets impose it, it could kill the program.
U limited representation, as well as the potential cost of UK operations, taxation would damage the U.S. economy by claiming that the supply source in the United States and the supply chain support half of the jet components for 22,000 U.S. jobs. High import duties will increase the cost of purchasing the C-Series, making the aircraft uneconomical for U.S. buyers.
Earlier this week, ITC’s hearing heard evidence that Bombardier executives have claimed that potential sales to other US planes have “frozen” due to the brewing of tariffs.
United Airlines responded to the latest developments between Bombardier and Boeing in U.S. courts, a situation that has evolved into a huge political battle.
Cada has given up orders for Boeing F-18 fighters, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his country will “not do business with economically damaging companies.” Canada later warned that future orders for the 88 fighters will assess the broader economic impact of the decision – a clear reference to Boeing.
US Defense Secretary Teresa May had asked Donald Trump to intervene, while members of the British Parliament called for a multi-billion-pound deal to be reviewed in order to buy Boeing from the British Armed Forces device of.
The Boeing Co. insisted that the C-Series was a competitor to its 737 passenger aircraft and added: “The investigation has undoubtedly confirmed that Bombardier has taken away billions of dollars in illegal government subsidies to support its C-Series plans. Bombardier’s illegal act harmed U.S. industry. “
