As the Domestic Aerospace Industry Faces A Dire Financial Crisis, IFPTE Supports $60 Billion in Federal Assistance

In a letter to the House of Representatives, IFPTE urges lawmakers to pass a $60 billion federal assistance package stating, "IFPTE fully supports a $60 billion federal assistance package for our domestic aerospace workforce. This federal aid supports the industry’s supplier network, which stretches across the U.S. and includes Kansas-based sub-assembly manufacturer Spirit AeroSystems, where our union represents over 2,600 workers. Federal assistance is critical for maintaining and expanding the domestic supply chain. The absence of robust pro-worker federal financial assistance for aerospace workers and the industry could jeopardize 500,000 jobs in a high-skilled and highly unionized industry."
