Boeing’s offer accepted, rejected

SEATTLE – It’s a split decision from the union representing Boeing Co.’s engineers and technical workers.

The engineers voted Tuesday to accept the aerospace company’s four-year contract offer while technical workers rejected it and authorized a future strike.

Bill Dugovich of the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace said the votes mean the new contract for the 15,550 engineers is in place.

He said negotiators hope to resume contract talks soon on behalf of the 7,400 technical workers.

A strike by the technical workers is not imminent, but Dugovich said the negotiating team is now authorized to call one.
