Join Boeing Fire Fighters on picket line

In an unprecedented move, the Boeing Co. locked out its unionized Washington state Fire Fighters May 4.

Local I-66 President Casey Yeager said his negotiating team presented Boeing on April 29 with a “reasonable, meet-in-the-middle” contract proposal that represented a compromise between the union’s initial demands and Boeing’s twice-rejected offer.

“Boeing refused to consider it,” he said. “The company told us we’ll have to take the offer we’ve already rejected twice, because we won’t get anything better. Now with this lockout, it’s trying to bully us into accepting a bad contract.”

Join the picket lines during non-work hours.

With only 125 members of Local I-66 at Boeing, you can help bolster their numbers. Join the picket line for as long as you can – no shift is too short! Even just taking a half hour lunch break with them does a lot for morale.
