According to the Everett Herald, about 1,000 workers are expected to show up the day before the January 3rd vote.

      Wish I was so fiscally secure that I could vote myself out of a job. That said, the states that consume the highest amounts of federal entitlement funds (relative to what they contribute) are in the south…where the conservatives have the highest support. hmm…

    The contract does not state that the 77x will be built in puget sound. Only that parts of the plane will be. Union members offered to give up their pensions for this plane and were denied by boeing. Would you give up your healthcare dental and retirement for a maybe? The contract is available for public viewing at the boeing machinist union website. And no i don’t work for boeing
