    Unions give $125,000 to support Machinists By David Bowermaster, Seattle Times
    Standing on a flatbed truck in front of Boeing's old headquarters on East Marginal Way, Anna Burger, the chairwoman of the Change to Win coalition, announced the contribution in front of a rowdy crowd of about 100 Machinists and members of other local unions.

    "Working people know that if a company as profitable as Boeing can skimp on retirement and health care, everyone's future is at risk," said Burger, who stood alongside Mark Blondin, president of the International Association of Machinists (IAM), District 751.
