Manufacturing pilots and field service reps at Boeing may join SPEEA.


Employees of aircraft maker Boeing (NYSE:BA) who deliver, ferry and train others to fly its planes, may become part of the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace (SPEEA), the union said on Friday.

Formal discussions will be held between the union and the the Airline Manufacturing Pilots Association (AMPA) to bring the independent bargaining unit into SPEEA. The union's governing council has also approved a motion to organise Boeing's field service representatives in the United States.

AMPA pilots recently voted to start discussions with SPEEA, while the field service representatives are reportedly collecting union authorisation cards in preparation for a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) representation election.
