MONTREAL (Reuters) - Workers at the Montreal plants of plane maker Bombardier Inc. accepted a new wage offer from the company on Friday, union officials said, ending a strike that has shuttered regional jet production since April 15.


A spokesman for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers told Reuters that the workers, some 7,500 of whom have been off the job for 18 days, voted 70 percent in favor of a new wage and pension benefits package.

The vote means production at Bombardier's three plane making plants likely to resume on Monday.


Sweet!
