Boeing Machinist Campaigns To Replace National Union Leaders
A Seattle-area Boeing Co worker is one of two men campaigning to replace national leadership of the International Association of Machinists in the wake of bitter infighting over the planemaker’s latest labor contract. Boeing’s IAM members narrowly approved the contract last week, effectively sacrificing their pensions for guaranteed work on the new 777X jet. But the contract vote left deep divisions between local union activists who generally opposed the deal, and the national union leadership who supported it. Jason Redrup, a member of the Seattle-based IAM local 751, and Jay Cronk, a former employee of the national union, told Reuters they are planning to run for vice president and president of the IAM, respectively.
