The Transit Riders Union stands in solidarity with Boeing workers of IAM District 751 in their fight to win a fair contract.
To the Members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) District 751, we are writing to express our solidarity with you in your struggle to secure a fair contract extension from Boeing.
As we all know, Boeing has threatened to transfer production of the 777x plane to a “right to work” state to pressure workers to agree to a contract extension that would slash slash pension benefits, drive up the cost of healthcare, and reduce cost-of-living adjustment to just 1 percent every other year.
We are heartened that IAM District 751 is leading the way in fighting against the ‘race to the bottom’ mentality being meted out by wealthy corporations on the backs of working class people, and inspiring others to fight back in the process.
The Transit Riders Union is an independent democratic organization of transit riders, fighting to save our bus service from massive cuts and to make public transit affordable and reliable for everyone in King County. We believe through solidarity we can build a movement that can improve our lives and create a just society for ourselves and for future generations.
We stand with you.
