Immediately after we completed the podcast with IAM 751, we invited Boeing to take a listen and respond if they so chose. And Boeing did decide to respond. We spoke with Tim Healy, Boeing spokesman on labor matters. It is exciting and gratifying to see much of the same spirit as that expressed by the IAM. Both sides certainly seem to want this to be a fresh start. The stock market already gave Boeing’s stock a bump up – truthfully everyone in the Boeing supply chain benefits – the only side that does not is competitors. We do marvel that it has taken so long for both sides to see this. It remains to be seen who the person was between IAM and Boeing who managed to cut through the Gordian knot and create this breakthrough. That person deserves a medal.
