Machinists Union Members at Boeing St. Louis to Vote on Modified Contract Offer, Temporarily Averting Imminent Strike

ST. LOUIS, July 30, 2022 – The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) nightly bargaining session with Boeing Co. resulted in an amended contract offer from the company.

Nearly 2,500 IAM District 837 members working at three separate Boeing defense sites in the St. Louis area will vote Wednesday, August 3, on whether to accept the company’s amended offer. The current contract has been extended until after Wednesday’s vote and will expire one second after midnight on Thursday August 4, temporarily avoiding the strike that had been scheduled for Monday August 1. Members will soon receive information on the amended offer.

IAM members are spread across Boeing facilities in St. Charles, Mo., St. Louis and Mascoutah, Ill. Members of IAM District 837 build and produce the world’s finest weapons and military aircraft, including the F-15, F-18, T-7A trainer and the MQ-25 unmanned tanker.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers is one of the largest and most diverse industrial unions in North America, representing approximately 600,000 active and retired members in the aerospace, defense, airline, railroad, transportation sectors in common, health, automobile and others.
