Even 2,500 miles away, they’re taking note of Alabama’s recent aerospace boom. The Seattle Times recently ran an in-depth profile on Airbus’ Mobile, Alabama operations and the suppliers that have followed. An accompanying article, meanwhile, examined Airbus’ differing attitudes towards labor unions in Europe and the United States. Even though Airbus employees in Europe are unionized, the company is hoping to avoid the same in Mobile. Good jobs and a better life, however, start with a strong union. It shouldn’t matter whether it’s in Mobile, Hamburg or Toulouse. You can check out both articles below:
