Company Will Go Ahead With Boeing Plant Purchase
Two days after machinists at Boeing's commercial plants in
Kansas and Oklahoma voted down a contract offer from Onex, the
Canadian company vowed to complete its purchase of the
Onex General Manager Nigel Wright told a news conference
Thursday the company will makes an offer directly to the workers,
bypassing union leadership. Workers who bypass the union will be
offered wages will be the same as in Onex's last offer and the
company will offer a 401K retirement plan. But there will be no
equity sharing and no union pension.
Wright said there will be no further offers from Onex to
unionized machinists -- at least, until after the plant transaction
with Boeing is complete.
The Wichita Eagle reports Onex will continue to negotiate with
SPEEA and the IBEW, the two other unions representing workers at
plants in Wichita, Tulsa and McAlester.
And if the other unions also turn down the company's offer?
Wright said, regardless, "sale's on," according to the Eagle.
