SPEEA Members Vote for Strike Authorization, Split on Contract
The Professional and Technical Negotiations Teams express their gratitude to the membership for their hard work and support over the course of these negotiations. Members overwhelmingly rejected Boeing’s contract offer on October 1. It was members’ activism that forced Boeing to improve that offer. The Professional Bargaining Unit voted yesterday (Feb. 19) to accept those improvements. The Technical Bargaining Unit voted to send the Technical Negotiations Team back to the table to seek additional improvements.
The Negotiations Teams were heartened to see that both units granted strike authorization. Even those members who voted to accept the contract offer showed their willingness to stand with their co-workers in the democratic tradition of your union.
