Bombardier Inc (TSX: BBD.B) stocks were zooming on Wednesday morning, June 15, up by about 11 per cent around 11 AM EST, after falling notably the day before. The jet company saw its stocks tumble by over 18 per cent on Tuesday, June 14, fuelling the S&P/ TSX Composite Index’s decline to a 13-month low as it closed at 19,548.51.

Bombardier stock’s decline came after the Internationale Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) recently rejected its five-year contract offer and went on a single-day strike on Monday, June 13. On Tuesday, the company sought to resume negotiation with IAMAW.

The owner of Challenger and Global business jets also initiated a tender offer on June 13 to buy its outstanding Senior Notes for an aggregate purchase price of up to US$ 350 million.
