SEATTLE, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Boeing has reached agreement with the machinists union to put an end to a 23-day strike.
The Seattle Times said machinists got most of what they wanted and the union leadership is recommending ratification.
Rank-and-file members will vote on the contract Thursday.
Mark Blondin, district president of the International Association of Machinists, sealed a tentative agreement late Friday night in Washington D.C., when he shook hands with Boeing Commercial Airplanes chief executive Alan Mulally and said, "We've got a deal."
The union had asked for no wage increases, instead demanding higher pensions and holding down health care costs.
