Florida Boeing engineers join SPEEA

Engineers at Boeing Flight Services of Miami voted this month to join the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace, the union said.

Engineers at the growing Miami site work closely with engineers at Boeing’s Puget Sound locations, who are represented by SPEEA.

“These employees asked for our help and we are pleased to help them gain the voice at work they need and deserve,” SPEEA president Tom McCarty said in a statement.”

The election was held by the National Labor Relations Board.

There are only two engineers at the facility. They join more than 15,600 engineers in SPEEA’s professional unit, the union said.
