Story

“I congratulate the Machinists Union and the Boeing Company on coming together in an agreement that is a win-win-win for workers, Boeing, and the Puget Sound region.

“This partnership between the skilled, educated workers of our region and Boeing will keep jobs and prosperity in King County while enabling Boeing to compete at a global level with quality, cutting edge aircrafts. Not only will this agreement benefit Boeing and the Machinists, it will create a ripple effect of jobs and opportunities.

“This type of synergy is what we have been seeking to stimulate in King County through my Transportation, Economy, and Environment Committee’s ‘Leading the way to economic prosperity’ panels this year and through the King County Aerospace Alliance. This is a great step in our climb toward economic recovery for the region, and we must continue to build on this victory.”
