Ukraine presidency: crisis deal agreed

Friday, 21 February 2014 01:55 Published in National News
   KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - Ukraine's presidency says negotiations with opposition leaders, the European Union and Russia have produced an "agreement to settle the crisis," but released no details.
   A statement on the presidency's website says a document will be signed at noon local time (1000 GMT, 5 A.M. EST) Friday.
   However, Germany's Foreign Ministry says on Twitter that negotiators had taken a break "to continue talks later on."
   Street battles between protesters and police in Kiev have left more than 100 people dead this week, including some shot by snipers Thursday. The Health Ministry says nearly 600 people have been wounded and 369 hospitalized.
   A shaky peace reigned in the protest camps in downtown Kiev Friday morning. No visible police forces remained on the square, and volunteers walked freely to the protest camps to donate food and other packages.
 

   Ameren crews are still working to repair downed wires and snapped utility poles that cut the power for tens of thousands of customers on both sides of the river.  

   Ameren opened its Emergency Operation Center at 5 p.m. Thursday in order to coordinate the utility's response to wind-related power outages. At the peak, the untility reported more than 17,000 metro-east customers were without power and more than 43,000 Missouri customers were in the dark.  

   Thousands in north St. Louis county could be waiting another day or more before their power is restored after strong winds brought down trees and snapped power poles.  

   At 1:40 a.m. Friday, Ameren was reporting just over 13,000 St. Louis area customers in Missouri were still without power.  The vast majority of them were in St. Louis County.  Just over 1,400 remained in the dark in Illinois.

Boeing machinists to vote on tentative 7 1/2 yr. contract

Thursday, 20 February 2014 04:25 Published in Local News

   Boeing Machinists in St. Louis will vote Sunday on a new contract.  

   The tentative deal reached yesterday is designed to lower the cost of making fighter jets and avoid layoffs here.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the deal sweetens buyouts for veteran workers and cuts wages for many future hires, while setting raises, bonuses and benefits through 2022.  

   Boeing officials say the changes are needed in order to reduce the cost of building the F/A 18 Super Hornet, with the hopes of keeping the line going after 2016.  

   The union vote comes one day before the Pentagon releases its next fiscal budget, which isn't expected to include any new Super Hornets for the Navy.  

   Boeing officials plan to ask Congress to add 20 new Super Hornets when they revised the budget.
