SEATTLE (KMOX) – It looks like the rank-and-file of a Washington state machinists union will, in fact, get to vote on a revised contract extension offer from Boeing on the 777X project.

The Seattle Times reports the national headquarters of the union trumped area district 751 leaders who refused to call for a vote.

The union’s lead negotiator on the national level confirmed to the Times that balloting will take place January 3rd.

If Boeing decides to move 777X production out of the Seattle area, 54 sites in 22 states have showed interest in landing the jobs.

Missouri and Illinois are believed to be in the mix.
