Hawker Beechcraft Negotiations Halted Amid Louisiana Offer

Union officials confirm that contract negotiations between Hawker Beechcraft and the local machinist union have broken down. No contract will be offered this week after officials reported that a coming offer would likely be voted on next Saturday.

Union spokesperson Bob Wood confirmed for KAKE News that the company has received a “large” offer from the state of Louisiana that would involve moving the entire company to Baton Rouge, LA.

Now, Wood says union officials have requested a meeting with Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson and HBC CEO Bill Boisture. That meeting is expected to take place this Tuesday.
