National Press Club To Host "NEWSMAKER" - Boeing's Engineers Union To Discuss Recent Contract And Strike Votes And Their Impact On Defense, Commercial Aviation And Trade

-- Ray Goforth, Executive Director Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace (SPEEA)

-- Paul Shearon, Secretary-Treasurer International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE)

-- Joined by employee representatives from the engineer and technical teams involved in negotiations and the strike vote and a Boeing pilot from that unit's negotiation team.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A panel representing leaders of Boeing's 26,000–member engineers' union – including the Executive Director of SPEEA, Ray Goforth, Paul Shearon, the Secretary-Treasurer of SPEEA's national organization, IFPTE and  three employee members of the union's bargaining teams – will discuss this week's contract and strike votes, the impact of a possible strike by engineers and/or technical workers and the recently started negotiations by the Boeing pilots unit of SPEEA.


With talks ongoing for more than one year, SPEEA is fighting elimination of the defined benefit pension for new engineers and technical workers. For the pilots, the key issues include continued outsourcing of work to contractors and the loss of job security. SPEEA has struck twice before: a one-day walkout in 1993, and a 40-day stoppage in 2000.

The National Press Club Newsmakers news conference is scheduled for 10 a.m., Friday, Feb. 22, 2013 in the club's Zenger Room on the 13 th Floor of the National Press Building, 529 14 th St., NW, Washington, D.C.
