Good news. Can they catch up on some of the delayed deliveries? But it seems that after the labour agreement ends in 3 years they're back to square one, seeing as how the machinists won't get a pay increase after the 3 years in wich they will receive the bonuses.

Well its nice to once in a while see a labour dispute that seems to result in a settlement that could be described as a win-win situation !


OT: Lumberton, did you make it through Rita all right ?

HAJFlyer. Yes, thanks for asking. I'm still a refugee, but hope to return home soon. In the meantime, look at my priorities: surfing a.net!

I would LOVE to see this be the case. The article sounds pretty sure of itself, even though every indication we have been given says that this would go on for months. I even personally spoke with a major Boeing sub-division VP last week and he said he expected January-February as the earliest strike resolution timeframe. I would love to be proven wrong the information I provided before! We can only hope and pray that this is true!  pray

No problem.

It is interesting to see that an alleged amicable stettlement attracts a lot less attention than a strike announcement on a.net.

It seems to me that the more controversial a topic is, the better it does on a.net in terms of numbers of posts.

From WSJ 09-25-05:

"...A person familiar with the situation said that union members are scheduled to vote on the new proposal on Thursday. The tentative agreement was first reported on BusinessWeek's Web site on Sunday."

...The new contract does not provide for a general wage increase, but workers would receive a bonus of 8% based on last year's salary, or about $5,000. They would also receive a $3,000 cash bonus in the second and third years of the contract, bringing the total amount to about $11,000..."

That does not sound so good. Is the expectation then that the machinists will reject whatever offer is on the table? If it does go on into the new year, I hope Boeing has a plan to recover from it quickly. I guess there will be all kinds of overtime when everyone is back at work.

The union leadership is recommending that they accept the offer, so I think that's encouraging. I think the membership will vote that way. Will be good to put this behind them and get back to the business of making airplanes!

I hope its over. My son and I will be at SEA Oct 6-9 and take in the "show" at Boeing Field. We also planned to take some photos there. It was looking like the picture shoot was going to be a bust, but this news is now most incourageing.
