Backed by the power of the Obama administration National Labor Relations Board, the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace union is set to strike against Boeing. The union contract expires Saturday. The new offer from Boeing slashed salary and other benefits thanks to the down economy. “It’s going to take movement from both sides,” said Boeing spokesman Doug Alder. “And we made a big move.” The union would instead prefer to hold up the company. “We’re closer to calling a strike authorization,” said SPEEA executive director Ray Goforth. If the unions strike, Boeing jet production will stop dead.


Obama's buddies and his drones killed the SC plant......and now, more unions are going to shut down Boeing once again.

I'm sure glad I never had to worry about unions where I worked.....but sad we got a community extortionists in the White HOuse siding with the unions at every step.
