Machinists union members and supporters chant at a rally asking members to vote against a proposed contract Thursday, Jan. 2, in Seattle.

About this Article

Chicago-based Boeing delivered 65 of its 787s last year, even though deliveries were halted for a four months because of battery problems. Boeing was able to step up the pace once deliveries resumed in May, and it handed over 25 of the jets during the final quarter of last year.
