IAM 751 president: Our members are Boeing’s best

SeattleTownhallHSEATTLE — Jon Holden, the president of Machinists Union District Lodge 751, had the following reaction to news that the Boeing Co. plans to assemble 787-10s solely in South Carolina:

“We are not surprised, but we are certainly disappointed. Our members have proven they are Boeing’s best chance for success for meeting production, quality and delivery expectations, on every airplane program.

“If I could send one message to our members today, it would be this: Be proud of all you accomplish. Hold your heads high. And remember: We cower to no one.”

Originally formed in 1935 to represent hourly workers at Boeing, District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers now represents more than 32,000 working men and women at 50 employers across Washington, Oregon and California.
