Elected officials from Kansas and Wichita, and union leaders reacted Tuesday by requesting meetings with Boeing officials to remind them of the promises they made to put jobs in Kansas should the company win an Air Force contract for aerial refueling tankers.Was that before or after the NLRB starting intimidating and using commie tactics on Boeing with the S. Carolina move.

Boeing lined up with Kansas and Wichita,
Airbus lined up with Alabama.

Am I the only one who se’s Congressional corruption here?

In other words the states with the strongest congressional delegations get the contract, not the company with the best design or the best price.

Am I the only one that see’s this as BS?

The only saving grace is that Kansas is s “right to work” state.

Though that may be a reason for the union to collude with the government to close the plant.

“It’s ... the nature of how those (military) contracts are awarded and won,” Brownback said.

Brownback played by the rules and found out just how ugly that can be. Politics is, and has always been, a dirty game

Maybe the “price” for staying in Wichita, would be for FUBO’s NLRB to pack up and get out of their nonsense with respect to the South Carolina Dreamliner plant.

He also said there is no demand for the tanker outside the United States.

You don't suppose price is a factor there?

Corporations have a fiduciary responsibility to turn a profit. Who knew? And why should a union know this? After all, “it’s irrelevant.” LMAO

Boeing leaves Wichita and with the impending cuts the military, Boeing might not see another contract.

What gives with Wichita?

Has it become a detroit-like cesspool of unions lately?
