Bombardier executives continue to mull over new information gleaned last Thursday during a “fact finding” meeting with negotiators for workers on strike since October 2 from the company’s Learjet plant in Wichita.

A company spokesman here in Orlando said Bombardier collected “a lot of information we weren’t aware of” but that he declined to identify. He characterized the meeting as positive and professional, however.

PSA Airlines last month fired 13 employees in connection with an April 26 wildcat strike of some 70 ramp and gate workers that disrupted service for more than three hours. The Teamsters-represented workers staged the walkout in frustration over a 7-cent-per-hour wage-hike offer from management. The sides had been involved in negotiations for some four years.
