Union leaders and every Midwest, Northwest and SPEEA Committee urge members to vote ‘ACCEPT’ when casting votes on the Constitutional Referendum to ease the process for employees outside of Boeing and Spirit to join our union.
Ballots are scheduled to mail to members Wednesday, Oct. 5. Watch for it in your home mailbox and cast your vote for our future! The referendum requires 60% approval from members. Ballots must be returned and received by SPEEA by noon, Oct. 26, to be counted.
The Referendum seeks to update one aspect of our Constitution by moving approval to start an organizing campaign for employees outside of Boeing or Spirit from a costly, all-member vote to a simpler and much quicker vote of the SPEEA Council. All other aspects of organizing, adding bargaining units and our union’s constitution remain the same. Your member elected SPEEA Council will still learn about and debate the benefits and issues of each organizing campaign before voting to approve or reject each organizing effort.
