Boeing Strike Fund Good for 6 Months

By  | 

The president of the machinists union says it has a $140 million strike fund and can sustain support for striking Boeing Co. production
workers for five or six months. Tom Buffenbarger says support for the strike has been unwavering among delegates.

The strikers are prepared and resolved to stay out``as long as it takes.'' That includes workers in Wichita. Union members voted last week to reject a three-year package.
