The Daily Herald of Everett reports that Boeing has added nearly 1,000 production workers in the past eight weeks, including about 190 it plans to hire Friday. The Machinists union says that would be the highest number of new machinists hired by Boeing in a single week since 2005.

After slowing some production lines because of the recession, Boeing says it will speed up its 737, 777 and 747 programs next year.
