JEFFERSON CITY, MO. (KTVI) – Missouri Governor Jay Nixon announced Tuesday, in Jefferson City that the St. Louis Building and Construction Trades Council, the Eastern Missouri Laborers’ District Council, and the Carpenters District Council of Greater St. Louis have agreed to forgo any overtime for construction of a proposed Boeing 777X plant.
The agreement would also allow for construction to be on a 24-hour work schedule, doubling the number of work hours and tripling the workforce to reduce construction time for a new plant to one year.
This agreement along with the $150 million dollars in annual tax incentives the governor is seeking from the Missouri State Legislatures special session, is meant to sweeten the pot to entice Boeing to the build the 777X in St. Louis County.
