Workers in Washington State were cheering this morning’s announcement by the Boeing Co. and Machinists (IAM) District 751 that the company will build the 737 MAX—the next generation of Boeing’s best-selling jet—in Renton, Wash.
The sweeping new four-year tentative agreement came after six weeks of negotiations, according to reports in The and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and shows
how the collective bargaining process benefits both workers and employers.
Workers will vote on ratification next week.
