OT: To Boeing union


As a machinist with 40 yrs experience, I have avoided unions like the plague.
A strike at this point seems ill-advised, EADS is taking over the 100+ seat market. Boeing has a 275 billion dollar backlog, and ya'll want to jeopardize that? The market doesn't care who makes the aircraft, just that they get an efficient plane. High fuel is the reason for the backlog. And energy will stay high, compared to previous prices. So, they will buy the aircraft, the question, from who?
Most likely Boeing will weather a strike just fine. EADS hopes you do strike.
11 percent isn't great, figuring Boeings profit. But it sure beats the alternative.

But Rick You still enjoy many of the benefits of unionism because your employer has to compete for machinists with the union so you get more money than you would otherwise and most likely many other benefits right?
