8.-- National leaders of the Machinists union are scheduling a vote on a proposed contract between  Boeing  and Puget Sound machinists, despite objections from local union officials who have already rejected the company's latest offer. 

The lead negotiator for the union's national headquarters, Rich Michalski, told  The Seattle Times  that a vote is set for Jan. 3.

The contract would secure work on Boeing's new 777X airplane at a time when 22 states are vying for those jobs. Boeing, the aerospace giant, said it expects to pick a location early next year.
