SPEEA wins secret-ballot decert election

Close call for frustrated organizers who can't identify dissenters

Spirit AeroSystems professional and technical workers voted to retain union representation on Tuesday. Workers represented by the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace voted 1,073-895.

The union represents about 2,400 workers at Spirit. A separate engineering unit was not affected by the decertification effort and did not vote.

A group of workers began a decertification drive in March. In May, the group filed a petition to ask the Labor Relations Board in Overland Park to hold a vote.

SPEEA's professional and technical unit at Boeing was decertified in a similar election last year.
