27,000+ Boeing Workers Hold Strike

More than 27,000 Boeing aircraft assembly workers yesterday held a pivotal strike vote that could paralyze the world's second-largest aircraft manufacturer while its business is booming and further delay delivery of its new fuel-efficient 787 commercial jet.
Electricians, riveters, painters and others covered by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers began casting ballots yesterday morning; the outcome was expected to be announced late last night on the West Coast. The workers are based at plants in the Seattle area, in Gresham, Ore., and in Wichita, Kan. - The Washington Post
A little organization can't hurt...right?
