Bombadier to shed 1,800 jobs

AEROSPACE giant Bombadier yesterday announced it was cutting 1,800 jobs as part of a huge reorganisation, following the shed-ding of 1,700 jobs earlier this year.

The aerospace division will be split into three, focusing on business aircraft, commercial aircraft and aerostructures and engineering services. The firm is one of Northern Ire­land’s biggest emp­loyers, although it is not know if the shake up will have any affect there.
