25. Talk about THE Case Study in how not to try to break away from Unions

Some how I doubt many, if any, executives and bean counters will learn the lesson of the 787. Not just this last chapter with SC vs. WA labor. The whole project is a textbook case study in how trying to break free of the traditional supply-chain and labor relationships can be totally mis-managed. I wonder what would have happened if, instead, they'd made honest efforts to improve and strengthen those relationships. I bet they'd have had a plane sooner and of better, consistent quality.

But no. As another poster said. This is all about power and control. The execs and the bean counters decided to make sure everyone understood they waved the largest penis at the cost of quality, production promises, labor relations, and their customers. Both sets of customers - the airlines and the flying public. Sadly, the corporate compensation system of those people rarely penalizes them for their poor judgement and management any more. Corporate boards seem to be mere rubber-stamps anymore.
