Boeing Engineers May Strike

UNDATED (WIFR) -- Boeing has been working tirelessly to fix the battery problem that's grounded its entire fleet of Dreamliners, so the timing to have personnel issues couldn't be worse.

The union that represents Boeing engineers is encouraging them to going on strike.

They begin voting on a new contract on Monday as well as whether to authorize a strike. If as strike is authorized, it could shut down Boeing production, which might impact local aerospace manufacturers. Boeing says it has a plan in place if that happens, but will not share details of that plan.
