>>Inslee Says Washington Still In Running For 777X

(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington Governor Jay Inslee says even though the Machinists union has rejected Boeing's offer of an eight-year contract extension, Washington is still in the running for the 777X project and intends to be competitive.  Union members voted by a two-to-one margin to reject the offer.  The Washington State Legislature recently approved a nine-billion-dollar tax-incentive package for Boeing in an effort to ensure the manufacture of the 777X and its advanced-technology wing would take place in the Puget Sound region.  Boeing CEO Ray Conner says the outcome of the union vote is disappointing and the company" has no choice but to open the process competitively and pursue all options for the 777X."
