Boeing Statement On IAM Extension

Boeing has released a statement from its president and CEO, Ray Conner, in response to the International Association of Machinists (IAM) & Aerospace Workers District 751's decision to proceed with its efforts to secure a long-term contract extension that would result in locating final assembly of the new 777X and fabrication and assembly of the aircraft's wing in Puget Sound, Washington. The possible agreement would “secure and extend thousands of high-wage, high-skilled aerospace jobs and expanded economic opportunity for residents of Puget Sound and Portland for many years to come", according to Conner.
