President Barack Obama plans to visit Boeing’s plant in Everett, Wash., on Friday, the White House said.
During the visit, Obama will discuss his blueprint for an economy based on American manufacturing and the importance of promoting American exports, the White House said.
Obama will fly on Air Force One, a Boeing 747 modified and maintained at Boeing’s Wichita plant.
While in Washington, Obama also will tour the 787 Dreamliner assembly line.
Never miss a local story.
The visit comes after a labor dispute last year over concerns the Obama administration was interfering with Boeing’s business decision to put work at a South Carolina plant.
In a controversial move, the National Labor Relations Board accused Boeing of illegally transferring work from a union plant in Washington to the nonunion South Carolina plant.
The union dropped the suit after Boeing agreed to put 737 MAX work in Renton, Wash., during union negotiations last year.
