Boeing, union discuss facility closure

March 17, 2012


— The Machinists union has begun talks with Boeing about what will happen to Wichita’s hourly workers as the company closes the facility.

The discussions include issues such as dates of closure, relocation packages, medical coverage and pension.

Union officials say their goal is to have represented employees placed in jobs at one of Boeing’s sites if they are willing to relocate.

The union represents about 325 of Boeing Wichita’s 2,100 employees.
