IAM 751 and Boeing leaders meet again, talk 777X

SEATTLE — Senior representatives from Machinists Union District Lodge 751 and Boeing Commercial Airplanes will meet again today.

The goal of today’s meeting is to see what the two sides can do to secure Puget Sound as the site for 777X fabrication and final assembly, said District President Tom Wroblewski.

“Our membership wants to build this airplane and we believe Boeing wants to do it here,” he said.

Wroblewski said union members will be updated after today’s meeting.

Originally formed in 1935 to represent hourly workers at Boeing, District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers now represents nearly 33,000 working men and women at 49 employers across Washington, Oregon and California.

    I guess the only “feedback” members get these days is a vote. Excluding our views is playing with fire.
