SEATTLE — The Boeing Machinists union has announced a deal to build the 737 MAX in Renton, where 737s are currently assembled.
Union officials told a news conference Wednesday in Seattle the deal includes a four-year contract extension.
Boeing announced the 737 MAX in August. It will have new engines to improve fuel efficiency and compete with the Airbus A320neo. Boeing did not announce where the 737 MAX would be assembled. The state of Washington launched a campaign to retain jobs.
Boeing has more than 80,000 employees in Washington, mostly at the Renton factory and the widebody factory in Everett.
