Councilmember Licata statement on Boeing Machinists rally today
SEATTLE – City Councilmember Nick Licata issued the following statement regarding the Boeing Machinists Rally today in Westlake Park. Councilmember Licata will address rally participants in Westlake Park today at approximately 4:30 p.m.:
"I stand side-by-side with the workers of the Aerospace Machinists Local 751, in saying the Boeing 777x should be built by Washingtonians who earn a living wage with decent benefits. Washington workers are the reason Boeing is the aerospace titan it is today, so the machinists shouldn’t be rewarded with contract cuts that lead us on a race to the bottom."
