Labor dispute between Boeing, SPEEA escalates

SEATTLE -- A labor dispute between Boeing and its SPEEA union is escalating.

The union, which represents Boeing's white-collar workers, said Monday its bargaining unit councils voted to send the latest Boeing contract proposal to its members for a vote. But it's strongly urging the union members to vote no.

In a letter to the company, the union blasts the proposed wages and changes to employee benefits.

Boeing had no comment as of late Monday night.
