The collaboration of Boeing and its labor union force is portrayed in both a historical and current context of the economic culture. The Boeing Strike of 2008 is evaluated by determining how instrumental the IAMAW was to the Boeing employees. Through unity and support, the IAMAW was able to complete a successful strike against one of the top aerospace companies in the world, Boeing.
