Raytheon Aircraft Avoids Strike

Machinists at Raytheon Aircraft in Wichita are working under a new contract after failing last month to marshal enough votes for a strike. The Wichita Eagle reported that union members had voted to reject the company’s proposed three-year labor agreement, but they did not have the votes required for a work stoppage. Because the strike vote fell short, the contract was ratified.
