IAM District 751 Directing Business Representative Tom Wroblewski issued the following statement:

“Today, the democratic process worked and our members made the decision to not accept the company’s proposal. It is my belief that we represent the best aerospace workforce in the world and hope that as a result of this vote Boeing will not discard our skills when looking to place the 777X.

“We preserved something sacred by rejecting the Boeing proposal. We’ve held on to our pensions and that’s big. At a time when financial planners are talking about a ‘retirement crisis’ in America, we have preserved a tool that will help our members retire with more comfort and dignity."

The IAM represents more than 31,000 Boeing workers who are affected by this vote and is among the largest industrial trade unions in North America. For more information on District 751, visit www.iam751.org.
