Boeing boosts contract offer for engineering union

Source: REUTERS

Boeing Co (BA.N) made a revised offer to the union representing its 23,000 engineering employees on Friday.

The improved offer came on the same day the U.S. government ordered a review of the firm's 787 Dreamliner following a string of mechanical and electrical problems.

Boeing and the union are meeting this week to renew a contract that expired in November. Federal mediators joined the talks in December after the talks appeared at an impasse.

Boeing's new offer boosted raises for professional workers by 5 percent in each of the first two years of the four-year agreement, and 4 percent in each of the remaining workers.
