Spirit engineers to vote next week

Members of the engineers union at Spirit AeroSystems will vote on the company's new contract offer next week, the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace said in an e-mail today.

Members can cast their ballots Oct. 7 and Oct. 8 at the SPEEA office on the lower level of the Parklane Shopping Center, 973 S. Glendale. Voting will take place between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Results will be available after the ballots are counted on Oct. 8.

The union and Spirit reached a tentative agreement last week.

Members rejected two previous offers from Spirit. They also approved a strike authorization during the second round of voting.

SPEEA represents more than 770 Spirit engineers.
