    More stupidity by the IAM members

    Last time I checked Stockholders own the company not the IAM. But I forget the IAM Yob’s are so brain washed by Union miss-leadership to think the company is theirs.

    • Lets see, 27000 X 1000 (most employees union have way more than 1k shares)=27m, so that put us as the third or forth largest shareholder group.hmmmm

      3900 plane backlog will be built by experienced, safe, qualified union workers from IAM and SPEEA. Good luck with any other plan.

      You didn't check close enough...MANY of these IAM folks are also stockholders in this company, but the difference between them and other stockholders - they actually participate in producing product for the company to earn a profit on top of putting their own money on the line.

      • I am fully aware that IAM members are shareholders, but just because they rivet a part, work in a tool crib, change light bulbs in Boeing buildings, or clean up toilets in the 40-24 is irrelevant. A share holder is a share holder. The share holder that maters the most is the one with the most shares.

        Most IAM members are support to the 25% that actually produce parts.

        But I do hope the IAM gets a good contract, a lot of them are good guy's.
