Almost 2,500 St. Louis-area machinist workers at Boeing Co., Chicago, are planning to strike Aug. 1 after rejecting a contract offer.
The offer included an increase in the matching contribution of its 401(k) plan to 100% of the first 10%.
In a statement, the union said: “Boeing previously took away a pension from our members, and now the company is unwilling to adequately compensate our members’ 401(k) plan. We will not allow this company to put our members’ hard-earned retirements in jeopardy.”
Longtime Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski faces tough reelection bid as Republican who voted to impeach Trump, but new state voting rules will likely have her and Trump-backed Kelly Tshibaka advancing to November election.
