Boeing and Seattle Union Leaders WIll Meet Again Today on 777X

SEATTLE (TheStreet) - The International Association of Machinists says senior leaders from District 751 will meet with Boeing (BA - Get Report) leadership on Wednesday.

"The goal of today's meeting is to see what the two sides can do to secure Puget Sound as the site for 777X fabrication and final assembly," said District President Tom Wroblewski, in a prepared statement.

"Our membership wants to build this airplane and we believe Boeing wants to do it here," Wroblewski said.

The meeting follows Tuesday's feedback session, which was the first meeting between the union and the company since Nov. 13, when union members voted to reject Boeing's proposed eight-year contract extension.

Boeing spokesman Doug Alder said Boeing representatives including Roy Conner, CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, met with IAM leaders on Tuesday. "We have regular conversations with the union on a variety of topics, but those conversations are private," Alder said. "This meeting was not a negotiation session." He declined further comment.
