FLOC stands in solidarity with Boeing Machinists on strike
at Seymour Johnson AFB
April 5, 2012

 


 
Due to Boeing taking away $6000 in wages and benefits during recent contract negotiations, the machinists at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, members of IAMAW, have voted to strike. They have been picketing since Monday and will continue to strike until the company puts more on the table.
 
The Boeing machinists have put out a call for solidarity support from the IAMAW District and all Local Lodges in North Carolina.
 
FLOC members joined the picket line for a couple of days this week and pledged to continue supporting strikers until the company gives them a fair deal. IAMAW, we stand with you, hasta la victoria!
