L-290 discusses sequestration

Left to right, steward Alen Botsford, Joe Elder, trustee Kathy Boink, President Mark Leigthon, Recording Secretary Deanna Cain, BM-ST John Kosinski, IVP Baca, and Vice President Ray Aceves.

AT THEIR JUNE 4 union meeting, members of Local 290 (Bremerton, Wash.) discussed their concerns about sequestration with Western States IVP Tom Baca. Sequestration is a multi-billion-dollar, across-the-board budget cut that went into effect after Congress failed to reach a budget agreement early this year. The majority of Boilermakers are not directly affected by sequestration; however, most of Local 290’s members work for the federal government at the Navy shipyard in Bremerton. The U.S. Navy has to find ways offset budget cuts, and furloughs are one option that has been considered.
