Boeing will move portions of its airplane construction out of Washington after a local union rejected a contract offer that would have saved the company $8 billion.

A company spokesman told the Washington Free Beacon that the company had no choice but to move construction of some of its largest planes out of the Evergreen State after International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local 751 rejected changes to wage and retirement plans.

“Since the union rejected the offer, we were forced to pursue all options for locating the 777X,” Boeing spokesman Doug Alder Jr. said. “That process is actively underway, although we are not disclosing which locations we are considering.”

  1. The self-destructiveness of unions baffles me. I can understand the union "leadership;" they're pure thugs, in it for the main chance, and could care less about the workers as long as the "leaders" get their share of the pie. But why do the workers go along with it? Don't the realize their union is selling them up the river for a nickel a piece?
