ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - A strike by Boeing workers in the St. Louis area has been averted.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) District 837 told News 4 it previously received a modified contract offer from Boeing. The offer came almost a week after nearly 2,500 Boeing workers at three St. Louis-area locations voted overwhelmingly to reject a contract from Boeing and go on strike.

The strike was originally slated to start on August 1. A vote on the modified contract took place Wednesday. Following the vote, Boeing sent the following statement:

“We’re pleased with the outcome of the vote and we look forward to our future here in the St. Louis area.”
