SHARE Boeing machinists get $10,000 bonus this month

The Puget Sound economy should get a mid-winter boost after Chicago-based Boeing pays bonuses to members of the Machinists union.

Workers will receive a $10,000 bonus in the paychecks the week of Jan. 25.

The bonus is part of the contract extension the union approved along with pension concessions in return for the company’s promise to build the new 777X in Washington. The union represents about 30,000 workers in the Puget Sound area.

The Olympian reports the contract also calls for a $5,000 bonus in January 2020.
