Larsen Statement on Machinists’ Vote to Approve Boeing Contract Offer

Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, issued the following statement after members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers voted to approve a contract offer from Boeing that will bring production of the 777X wing and fuselage to Washington:

“Now that the state and union have delivered, it is time for Boeing to hold up its end of the bargain. Washington has shown that we stand behind a strong aerospace industry. Boeing should make the same commitment to our state.

 “I am pleased the 777X will be made in Washington. It is time to move forward and start the next chapter in our state’s aerospace history.”
