A friend has a son who is a machinist and works at the Everett facility.

He was predicting after the first vote lost that Boeing would sweeten the offer, but they would still reject it.

I predicted a re-vote and that it would pass once the dumchits realized Boeing was serious about moving it to a different state.

You can bet your last dollar that if Boeing went through all the trouble of re-locating it, it would be to go to a non-union environment, the National and local unions losing 30,000+ dues-paying jobs in the process.

The national group saw it. The local leadership still have their heads up their rears!
I expect there will be a change in the local leadership.

Something that really got me over the last few weeks is how many of the Unionized workers were out there giving interviews and calling Boeing management evil incarnate and greedy SOB’s and whatever!
Amazing!
If I was a manager at B and saw one of my workers on the tube spewing as much hate and vitriol as that, he’d be out of the door in a heartbeat!

My {now dead} uncle, was a union boss at a local Westinghouse plant that in it's prime employed 12,000 union workers.

He spewed the came kind of commie clap trap, and too many of the sheeple bought it and fought and struck and sabotaged the company at every turn.

Finally, the company had enough, and the plant now is empty.

Stupid bastards.

That would be a dangerous move. I've had to deal with a union organizing action and the union & members have to be treated with kid gloves.

*****

and also, Boeing would be able to build a new state-of-the-art facility, not keep trying to renovate the old factories at Everett.

I doubt it - that would be a Hate Crime against a union member! I was at a government site and my client said it is just terrible. You can’t yell or get mad at the guys or they’ll get the union on you. He was at one meeting and the boss was asking nicely, pleading, with the guys. “So guys, if you can give me four good solid hours of work each day we can get this project back on track. Please.” (They work 10-hour days!)
