Boeing machinists to vote January 3 on revised contract

Unionized workers at Boeing Co (BA) will vote on January 3 on the company’s latest proposed contract, according to a statement issued by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers on Sunday evening. In November, machinists at the Everett, Washington plant where Boeing’s 777 jet is built voted 2 to 1 against the company’s initial offer. Under that eight year contract, production of Boeing’s next jet – the 777X – would have remained in Washington state. In the aftermath of the vote, Boeing said it would look for other locations to build the 777X, the only jet the company is likely to develop in the next 15 years.
