Striking Boeing Workers Set Vote

By  | 

SEATTLE (AP) _ The Machinists union has scheduled a vote on an
agreement to end a strike against the Boeing Co. for Saturday.

A notice posted on the Web site of Machinists District Lodge 751 in Seattle says voting will be conducted along with the distribution of strike paychecks.

The count is set for Saturday evening at the union hall with the results to be announced later that night.

A tentative agreement to end the strike was reached late Monday. Saturday will be the 57th day of the walkout, which has shut down Boeing's commercial jet assembly plants since Sept. 6.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers represents about 25,000 Boeing production workers in and around Seattle, 1,500 in Gresham, Ore., and 750 in Wichita.
