The councils’ also voted to join the two negotiation teams in their recommendations that SPEEA members REJECT the company’s latest contract offers to 7,400 Technical and 15, 550 Professional employees. The votes by the Technical Unit representatives were unanimous. The Professional Unit representatives voted to add strike authorization to the ballot and recommend rejection with only one dissenting vote.

Ballot packages are scheduled for mailing Feb. 5. Members have until 5 p.m., Feb. 19, to cast and submit their votes. Summaries and full redline versions of the Boeing contract offers are posted on the Contract Offer page of the SPEEA website.

Thousands of union members have heard from their negotiation teams during lunchtime meetings and open house events at SPEEA halls. A full schedule of workplace meetings is on the SPEEA calendar and the website at www.speea.org.

A union release said, “A strong contract rejection of the offers and strike authorization will give the negotiation teams additional bargaining power to secure contracts that respect SPEEA members’ contributions to Boeing’s continued success.”
