SPEEA, Spirit to resume negotiations on Friday

Whether the third time is a charm is too early to say. Spirit AeroSystems and its engineering union are in a third round of negotiations after members twice rejected the company’s proposals. This time, a federal mediator was called in to assist.

On Tuesday, the union, the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace, presented the company with a counterproposal to the one engineers rejected earlier this month. The company countered today.

But the two sides have not reach agreement on the main issues. Talks resume again tomorrow.
