“I commend Boeing for providing equal pension survivor benefits for same-sex spouses and domestic partners,” Smith said in a news release Tuesday afternoon. “LGBT workers are a critical part of a skilled labor force and equal treatment of their employees has led to Boeing’s success and global leadership in aerospace, science, and technology.
