What People are Saying About the Deal Between Boeing and the Machinist Union

Here's a sample of what people are saying about a tentative agreement between the Boeing Co. and its Machinists union.

"The 737 MAX siting decision is great news for the State of Washington and our region. The tentative contract agreement between the International Association of Machinists and Boeing today is not only proof in the strength of partnership but is a positive signal for future opportunities in Snohomish County and the Puget Sound Region." -- Troy McClelland, CEO and president of Economic Alliance Snohomish County.

"This is a monumental day for the future of aerospace in Washington state. There is no better news for our region's economy than a contract agreement between Boeing and the Machinists, and confirmation that Renton will remain home to the 737 line. The ramifications of this news will be felt in businesses large and small, around kitchen tables, and in communities throughout the Puget Sound for years to come." -- U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.

"This agreement recognizes the strength, dedication and value of Washington's skilled and highly-valued aerospace workforce and the importance of fair and predictable time tables for Boeing's customers. Washington's workers can continue to build airplanes today and well into the future." -- Washington Aerospace Partnership co-chairs Tayloe Washburn, Bob Drewel and Jeff Johnson.
