[Avionics Today 08-08-2014] The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) plans to file a lawsuit against Spirit AeroSystems over the company’s plans to outsource IAM-represented jobs by selling a key fabrication operation and the use of outside contractors. The IAM will request a federal district court to issue an injunction prohibiting Spirit from selling the fabrication unit or outsourcing any union jobs pending arbitration of the dispute.
