Boeing machinists to vote on company’s revised offer, union says

Unionized workers at Boeing Co (BA) who resoundingly rejected a proposed contract last month will get a chance to vote on the company’s latest offer, the union’s national office said on Saturday, despite opposition to the revised deal from local labor leaders. “I can confirm that a vote will take place,” Frank Larkin, a spokesman for International Association of Machinists, told Reuters. 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. The eight-year contract would have kept production of Boeing’s next jet – the 777X – in Washington state.
