Talks collapse in Boeing strike

15 October 2008

Federal mediators halted recently resumed negotiations between Boeing and the machinists’ union last Monday, after discussions on job security broke down. Mark Blondin, lead aerospace coordinator for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace workers (IAM), said that the talks never even got to a discussion of economic issues.

Over 27,000 machinists in Washington, Oregon and Kansas are completing the sixth week of their strike in which they have sought to halt the outsourcing of their jobs, prevent the imposition of higher costs for health care, and improve their pension fund and wages. This is the first back-to-back strike by machinists in Boeing’s history. The aircraft workers struck for 28 days in 2005.
