The local bosses told them to vote no, and didn’t even want them to vote on the new offer by Boeing. The national union told them to vote on it, and to vote yes.
I have no doubts that Boeing would have had production for this move to a union-free state if it had been a no vote. Boeing’s latest offer was not that much different than their first offer iirc.
Thanks for the clarification. The local bosses apparently still believe you can get Sauvignon Blanc by squeezing a rock if you just apply enough pressure.
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!
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!
