Free medical for life at 55. More power to you if you can get it, but don't be surprised when your job is outsourced. Companies can not afford these type of free benefits anymore. I was advised this week my family premium is increasing from $196 every two week per pay period to $219 per pay period starting Jan 1. I don't like it, but I have a stable job that supports my family.

Read the entire article. Seniority will have them "bump" to LB and displace others with less service.

Hey morons - the CEO's bonus is NOT based on such a small financial impact as closing a parts warehouse.
These union employees bargained themselves out of a job and the union bargained themselves out of members! Really forward thinking.

Luckily, Public Employees don't have to worry about breaking the citizens back paying for all their union demands. At least there is one "special" class of citizens who don't have to suffer "real world" consequences like the rest of us.

If you had any true idea of the amount of profit Boeing is reaping from its aircraft sales and support parts, you would realize that this medical coverage, which the union did negotiate for, is a mere drop in the bucket for Boeing expenses. Also, in case you didnít know, Boeing HAS NOT offered retiree medical or pension benefits to its new hire union employees since 2007. Why not let the employees who have these benefits finish out there time and receive what they were promised? Itís an unethical and greedy move on Boeingís part. Smells like big CEO bonuses

Unions basically destroyed the mighty Being plant that was once in Long Beach. I've heard that 20 years ago the plant had over 30,000 workers.

Do the math. In the article, Stan Klemchuk, Union President states outsource of up to 200 jobs. The company I work for pays $1500/month for my family insurance. I pay 26% of this cost. Boeing is out the full $1500/month with free medical for life.$1500/month times 12 months equals $18,000 per year.$18,000 per year times 200 employees equals $3,600,000 per year. This maybe a drop in the bucket to you and the union, but a significant expense per year for 200 employees in the private sector. This does not include the growing cost of health care on a yearly basis that would add to the cost of the free health care for life.

This scenario will continue to multiply everywhere there are labor unions who have extorted unsustainable agreements.

It's sad to see anybody loose their job, but these folks should be thankful for the decades of much higher than average pay and unusually generous benefits they received.

Unfortunately for many unions the end of the line is here, the ride is over, prepare to get off.

America can't afford you anymore.

If citizens can't even defend their home state against the alien colonization they certainly won't be able to stop the Unions from plundering the State and forcing it into insolvency.

People bemoan the fact that 200 jobs will be lost because of this move by Boeing when, in fact, this is not necessarily true. Sure, 200 people in over-taxed, business unfriendly California may be losing their jobs, but 200 people in low-tax, very business friendly Texas will be gaining employment. Isn't the liberal mantra "redistribution of wealth"? I'm sure this philosophy will carry over to the "redistribution of jobs", and that those people complaining about losing work in California will see the error of their ways and be happy for the newly employed Texans.

Good job California. Boeing stays in the US, but moves out of our state. Like Nissan and the earlier Boeing move to OKC. I wonder when this state will learn.

Greedy investors of Boeing want dividends and the typical union thug bets on the state lotto,who is the winner? Stupid Stanley tell us why you are, a loser and failure? Maybe you should get elected to state government, Democrats never lose; beacuse the cheat, lie and steal! They never are found guilty!
