Salary vs Hourly Pay

posted in: Uncategorized | 6

BSC Vice President Joan Robinson-Berry has repeatedly said BSC wages compare to Washington State when adjusting the cost of living difference between the two locations. With some research, it is safe to say the difference is small, just 6% (Source: CNN MONEY). Below is a list comparing salary wages between the two 787 sites Everett, Washington and Charleston, South Carolina along with the difference between your hourly wages.

I guess Mrs. Joan forgot to mention in her comments the cost of living adjustment only applies to salary workers and area wage applies to you. #YouDeserveBetter

    I thought we were “Teammates”? Doesn’t feel that way. Feels like being viewed as a lower class. Guess the only way to have a voice is to speak as one collective group, that is what a union is.

    Definition of Team –
    A group of people with a full set of complementary skills required to complete a task, job, or project.
    Team members (1) operate with a high degree of interdependence, (2) share authority and responsibility for self-management, (3) are accountable for the collective performance, and (4) work toward a common goal and shared rewards(s). A team becomes more than just a collection of people when a strong sense of mutual commitment creates synergy, thus generating performance greater than the sum of the performance of its individual members.

    I started in Everett wa on the 787 did 4 years then went to Charleston SC (permanent move)for 4 years then took at QA job back home in Renton 737 and am now on the 777x. Was a mechanic on 787 in Everett and charleston. I have experienced both union and non-union. My first view on it all was I don’t need a union I’m a good worker. But after working a non union shop there truly is a place for them. If you want my hole store on both sides contact me back

    Why not post assembler B, since most are in the B category?

    The vast majority of the jobs posted are not in the scope of the IAM anyway… nice smoke and mirrors tactic.

      ALL Everett Union jobs pay 30 to 36% higher than Charleston after 5 years on the job. FACT! Do your homework folks! He doesn’t need to list every job classification. They’re all 30 to 36% higher pay after 5 years. However, Salary employees in Charleston enjoy just 5 to 7% less than Everett. Again, look!! You’re an hourly worker and that’s just a step above a Contractor. I have 12 years with Boeing – Hourly Union, Salary overseas and Hourly in Charleston and as an hourly worker I want/need a Union to get my pay to where it belongs!! We lost pensions and now we’re losing big on hourly wages.

      I don’t have a problem with management walking people out for not doing their jobs but have you ever heard of them walking a Salary Employees for not doing their jobs?

      She wants to compare our pay to the local market again..? Who will BSC compare us to this time, piggly wiggly? Why don’t they adjust our Salary workers to the local market? Let’s ask BSC just to compare our pay to the Everett workers who work for the same company and build the same plane and give us 7% less..? That would just be to easy!! That’s comparing Apples to Apples!

    You Cats are missing information, most all of the employees that actually create what The Boeing Company sales from our SC facility are salaried employees. Subject to BG&O’s etc. and the strangest part is Compensation made a grave error 20 months ago and hired about 12 people in at $22.00 for Interiors that story just went Away
