Machinists Union Rally Against Boeing Contract Offer

National leaders at the International Association of Machinists and

Aerospace Workers recently announced a vote on Boeing's proposal despite

the objections of local union leaders who had rejected the offer. The

local leaders are recommending that members vote "no," in Friday's vote

despite Boeing's threat that work on its new 777X airplane will go

elsewhere if workers don't take the deal.
