Boeing Co. workers at the company’s St. Louis military-aircraft facility will vote today on an amended contract offer, with union leaders recommending members reject the deal.

The International Association of Machinists said Boeing made two amendments to a contract voted down by union members earlier this month. The latest offer follows two days of federal mediated talks.

A strike would be scheduled to begin early Friday. IAM District 837 represents more than 2,500 Boeing workers at the St. Louis facility, which builds the F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet and the F-15E Strike Eagle for the U.S. military.
