Boeing, UAW extend talks in Philadelphia

Boeing and the United Auto Workers Union have yet to come to an agreement on a new contract for workers who build military helicopters at a factory outside Philadelphia.

The two sides agreed over the weekend to extend their previous contract — which expired on Oct. 1 — on a day-by-day basis so that talks could continue.

The UAW represents nearly 1,800 workers at the plant, building Chinook helicopters and V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft.

Without the agreement, a strike could have begun today.
