WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The union representing engineers at the Boeing Co.'s military aircraft plant in Wichita is recommending its members reject the company's contract offer and authorize a strike.

Negotiations broke down Tuesday between Chicago-based Boeing and
the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace.

Union members will vote next week on the same contract they rejected 209-28 earlier this month. This time, the union also is asking for a strike authorization.

SPEEA represents 700 engineers at Boeing's Integrated Defense
Systems plant in Wichita.
