- Negotiations between Boeing (BA) and the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers over a labor contract have collapsed after three days of talks.
- A deal would have meant that the company would have decided to build the latest version of the 777 in the Seattle area.
- Boeing appears to have plenty of other options - it has received bids from 22 states to construct the 777X at 54 possible locations across the U.S.
- The "talks are over," said Boeing spokesman Doug Alder, and the company has "no plans" to return to the table. Its latest offer is its "best and final" one. (Previous)
