Cessna Aircraft has
announced that it has reached an agreement for a three-year
contract with members of Local Lodge 774 of the International
Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (I.A.M.).
"This agreement is a true reflection of Cessna's commitment to
all employees and to our belief in the value of working
collaboratively with the I.A.M. Without a doubt, Cessna has the
best employees in the industry," said Cessna Chairman, President
and CEO Jack J. Pelton.
"We believe this package is both beneficial to Cessna employees
and competitive in today's marketplace."
These folks will have plenty to do... In 2006, Cessna delivered
1,239 aircraft, including 307 Citation business jets, and reported
revenues of about $4.2 billion and a backlog of $8.5 billion. Since
the company was originally established in 1927, more than 189,000
Cessna airplanes have been delivered to nearly every country in the
world. The global fleet of more than 5,000 Citations is the largest
fleet of business jets in the world.
The new contract will take effect on September 17, 2007.
