MONTREAL - Bombardier is freezing the salaries of its roughly 38,000 non-unionized employees as it deals with costly delays in the launch of its CSeries commercial jet.
The freeze covers workers in all divisions, including its head office in Montreal, spokeswoman Isabelle Rondeau said Friday.
"The end of the salary freeze is undetermined," she said.
The Montreal-based transportation giant has already announced 1,700 layoffs in its aerospace division and Rondeau said company is also cutting travel budgets and reducing business travel.
