Comments on: Boeing’s extreme outsourcing http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-investigates/2011/01/20/boeings-extreme-outsourcing/ Insight and investigations from our expert reporters Thu, 02 Jan 2014 05:21:21 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: SPEEA_Retiree http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-investigates/2011/01/20/boeings-extreme-outsourcing/comment-page-1/#comment-222 Sat, 22 Jan 2011 19:17:08 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/the-deep-end/?p=735#comment-222 Right on American Guy!!!

Boeing’s machinists’ union exists for their own benefit, not for the benefit of the members.

Apparently it’s better the union to lose union jobs, than to relax and maybe even allow for union members to pay a little bit more of what are becoming enormous medical costs. Boeing is self-insured, so all increases in the cost of medical care that result from improved medical procedures and methods are paid for by Boeing, as an employee-benefit. So, why can’t grossly-overpaid machinist share some of those increased costs? Because the union administration would lose “power” if they were to allow that, “Yes, it’s okay to charge our members more for the skyrocketing medical cost. Boeing should pay those cost without burden on the machinists.”

They are to blame for many of the businesses closing down. They enter businesses through deception of the employees and will let a business fail rather than loosening their grip and taking less money. They limit the ability of businesses to compete and ignorantly wonder why those businesses would want to go elsewhere. That’s why their numbers have steadily decreased since the 50’s.
