Seattle: Edward Greenberg discusses new book on Boeing he co-authored

February 9 2011 14:30 - February 9 2011 16:30

Turbulence: Boeing and the State of American Workers and Managers (Yale University Press, Oct. 12, 2010) captures more than 10 years of dramatic change at the commercial jets arm of The Boeing Company.

In Turbulence, Edward Greenberg and his co-authors meticulously researched an inside look at how Boeing Commercial Airplanes workers and managers were affected by unprecedented changes, including a major merger, tens of thousands of layoffs, new roles for women, rapidly expanded outsourcing for the 787 Dreamliner, and rampant technological change.

Greenberg will appear from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. on the Georgetown campus of South Seattle Community College. 6737 Corson Avenue South, in Building A, Room 112.

The free event is sponsored by the Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies , the Washington State Labor Education and Research Center, and International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, AFL-CIO District 751.
