Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Boeing Company has responded and offered a settlement to the unfair labor practice charge that we filed with the National Relations Labor Board (NRLB). This charge was in regard to our dispute with The Boeing Company about what was agreed upon during our 2014 negotiations with respect to health care benefits.  The proposed settlement is to remove the scheduled January 1, 2019 increase (i.e. 12% to 14%) in medical plan contributions for active employees and their dependents participating in the Traditional Medical Plan and the HMO Plan. This means the monthly contributions for these plans will remain at 12% until the expiration of our current CBA.  After much discussion and recommendations by our local attorneys, UAW International attorneys, and our medical experts we have decided to accept this offer.


The Boeing Company will promote and sponsor a Global Walk on Thursday, June 22nd. This walk will take place during lunch hours throughout the site and enterprise. We encourage all employees to sign-up and participate in this walk. The Global Walk will benefit non-profit organizations that provide mobility around the globe. The Boeing Company will make a $500,000 donation to four non-profit organizations that support the rehabilitation and mobility of military service members in the U.S. and internationally. Again, please join in this event.


Infraction Free Day – July 3rd. The Boeing Company will allow an unlimited number of employees to take off Monday, July 3rd and utilize Leave Without Pay (LWOP). However, employees may still use sick or vacation time for this day as well. Employees must ask for and be granted permission from their manager by the end of shift on Thursday, June 29, 2017. Employees who choose this option of 8 hours LWOP for Monday, July 3rd will still receive Holiday pay for the contractually observed Independence Day, Fourth of July, holiday. Please speak with your managers and your UAW Representatives with any additional questions or concerns.




Yours in solidarity,

Mike Tolassi, President
