State Officials Meet with Boeing over 777X Project

boeingHQ courtesy of Boeing media site(Photo via Boeing) Governor Sam Brownback says state officials are working to attract a new Boeing aircraft production line to Kansas. Brownback says he met with Boeing officials last week.


Brownback says multiple states are trying to attract the aircraft jobs. A majority of the Machinists union voted earlier this month to reject a new Boeing contract. Part of the rejected agreement said work on the 777X would be completed in Washington state. The vote is what has led Boeing officials to consider other locations.

Brownback says he met with Boeing officials last week to talk about bringing jobs to Kansas. He says even though Boeing doesn’t have a large presence in Kansas, many of the company’s subcontractors do.
