There are thousands of people who are unemployed are willing to work for less and to be non-union since they came from 30 years of airline line maintenance experience who have bad experience with the unions.
At Boeing, we have production employees who have no A&P, real airline experience and have no troubleshooting skills. They come from pizza hut, burger express joints and low wage employers who think that they deserved to make 100,000/year when they are disgruntled, non-skilled and basically does NOT deserved to be in the position they are in.
They are the same workers who shut down production and the ONLY Boeing 787 produced over at Everett with problem. LOT engine filters, wiring on Etheopian, panel falling off on Air India, Norweigian, United Aft EE fire, JAL wing tank fuel problems just to name a few.
In Charleston, maybe we have slight problem with production employees who have not enough experience but that was 21/2 years ago and our flightline mechanics have 20 years airline average experience. We did experienced main gear minor hydraulic leaks due to production does NOT inflate the struts and have sat on the bottom for months. None of our 787 have any problem.
..........and your point is?

The majority of the problem in Boeing CHS is factory workers. Employees and Quality comes from fast food industry and lack of aviation knowledge and workmanship. They [factory] promised flight line that airplanes coming out from there will have less than 100 write ups. In the beginning, we have 200 or so and NOW....

ANA line 132 have over 500 and Qatar planes are coming out with over 800. Final Assembly and 19 & 20 vought and global have a serious and major quality and management issues.

Flight line in CHS can no longer bear the problems coming out of BURGER FACTORY! All of the aircraft have been delivered late because of the factory unable to find aviation techs, not pizza experts.

And also VENDORs don't stand up to their product. They are as cheezy as homeless tent town you find in New York slums. They are never around post flights and importantly customer walk.
