Boeing worker's appeal to the NLRB

The Boeing worker's appeal to the NLRB over the concessionary contract that was forced on them by the IAM international leadership is positive in that they are refusing to let the issue lie and are putting the union hierarchy in the limelight. However, this struggle can be won if these brothers and sisters formalize their opposition by building a fighting caucus within their IAM local and calling a meeting to formalize it and then reaching out to the wider labor movement and working class as a whole to begin an offensive of our own. They have an advantage in Washington State in that Seattle now has a socialist on the city council and an active campaign that helped put her there.
