  •  the Boeing McDonnel merger (0+ / 0-)

    Is known internally as 'when Douglas took over' ; redneck management. Then came Mulally, not sure of he helped or not, but anyway he bailed for Ford before it started coming down. Anyone from Being to comment on this? The engineers union did a white paper in 2001 or so that predicted what would happen if the announced outsourcing plan was followed, and it pretty much did. Now they are near a strike over Boeing wanting to end pensions and go to 401ks for new hires. Personally I think I'll stick to automobiles for a while.

    •  They are about || close to striking. (0+ / 0-)

      SPEEA rejected the latest "offer" the Boeing handed them.

      A good number of the engineers are very upset about what is going on (the outsourcing coming home to roost), not being used to design and engineer the 787, etc.
