Union leaders fail as leaders

IAM 751 Union leaders are mailing letters to all their members, urging a “no vote” on Boeing’s offer, on Jan. 3.

So what will many union members get, in exchange for the high union dues that their leaders demand each month? Massive layoffs, since the 747 line is slowing down, and may phase out, and there will not be any 777X work to fill that gap, since union leaders failed as leaders, to do everything possible to make sure that the 777X will be built in Everett.

When the vote is counted, outside observers/auditors should be there.
