The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) has warned that it will only consider “serious proposals” from Spirit AeroSystems regarding the potential sale of its fabrications business.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) has warned that it will only consider “serious proposals” from Spirit AeroSystems regarding the potential sale of its fabrications business.

IAM, which has more than 900 members working at Spirit, said it doesn’t want a 10-year agreement workers signed with Spirit in 2010 to alter. Under the agreement Spirit agreed to safeguard manufacturing jobs in Wichita, Kansas if it sold the business.

Frank Molina, president of the Machinists District 70 in Wichita, said: “We are prepared to consider proposals regarding a sale, but only if contracts are maintained, wages and pensions are preserved, and workers’ hard earned benefits are not a casualty.”
