The Joker is “Right to Work” States!

Are you following the Boeing Aircraft kerfuffle with their Machinist Union?

I didn’t follow it either, but the result of the argument this past year is that Boeing has decided not to necessarily build their new 777 Aircraft in the State of Washington, and has opened bidding among other states.

A dozen states are competing for the tens of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic growth — states as disparate as California and Texas, Wisconsin and South Carolina will compete, and compete hazard they will.

It turns out that seven employees picketed today in front of the Boeing plant asking their local union to ask the national union to renegotiate the contract that the entire union turned down last November by a 67% vote over pensions, medical, etc..

Today was the day that the dozen states had a deadline to submit their offers, and the local union leader and the CEO of Boeing had a meeting.

Here is what we know — Boeing holds the cards — called “Right to Work” states!
