IAM Members at Boeing Agree to Contract Extension, Maintain 777X Production

January 6, 2014

Machinists (IAM) at the Boeing Co. voted to accept an eight-year contract extension Friday that ensures production of Boeing’s 777X will remain in Washington State. The 51% to 49% vote also means Boeing will maintain production of its 737 MAX in Renton through 2024. Analysts estimate the two programs could account for as many as 20,000 direct and indirect jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity.
