SEATTLE - Pressure is mounting in Washington state for union members to approve a contract that would keep the 777X jet manufacturing in Seattle.

Union leaders say Boeing's latest contract offer is too similar to a deal that's already been rejected, but the governor of Washington and a national union spokesman is urging the union to vote. Thousands of jobs are at stake.

Missouri and Illinois are among 22 states trying to lure the 777X production.
