Boeing Co.  intends to offer again its “best-and-final” labor contract to the union representing its machinists in St. Louis during a scheduled meeting Monday afternoon, setting the stage for a strike later this week.

The 2,533 members of the International Association of Machinists, District 837, rejected the same contract more than a week ago and then notified the aerospace giant of its intention to halt work just after midnight Friday.

This would be the second strike for Boeing this year and hinges again on pension and medical benefits.

On June 10, assembly line workers in Long Beach, Calif., returned to work after a monthlong strike. The St. Louis plant builds the F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet and the F-15E Strike Eagle for the U.S. military.
