  • Important Informational Meetings Dec 4-6 on Boeing’s “QA Transformation”
    Posted On: Nov 28, 2018

    Previously, we announced that the Boeing Company was in the process of implementing what they call a “QA Transformation.” This transformation will cut thousands of inspections from work instructions on each airplane.

    We are holding informational meetings on Dec. 4-6 at locations and times below in order to share the information we have been provided and talk about things we are trying to do to mitigate the company’s implementation.

    3 Meetings in Renton

    3 Meetings in Everett

    3 Meetings in Auburn

    Tuesday, Dec. 4

    Renton Carpenters’ Hall

    233 Burnett N.

    6 a.m., 11:30 a.m., & 3 p.m.

    Wednesday, Dec. 5

    Everett 751 Union Hall

    8729 Airport Road

    6 a.m., Noon & 3 p.m.

    Thursday, Dec. 6

    Auburn 751 Union Hall

    201 “A” St. SW

    6:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m, & 3:30 p.m.

    NOTE: Meeting times are designed to allow you to attend before or after work.

    At the meetings, we will share information, invite open discussion and give everyone an opportunity to share their concerns. We would like members to bring examples of current processes that may lead evaluators to believe inspections are not necessary in specific areas due to the lack of documented defects.

    We are looking for examples where escapement data is not being compiled accurately.

    Bring specific examples of how this process will lead to costly rework further down the production line. Also be prepared to share specific examples from the past where Boeing eliminated inspections only to later reverse that decision after issues or problems occurred.

    By sharing information on Boeing’s transformation plan, everyone will understand what is at stake. We will also have stickers and T-shirts that will be distributed with our united message: Not OK to Cut QA.

    We look forward to seeing you at one of the meetings.
