Formed in 1946, SPEEA is an affiliated local union of the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE).
As a professional union, we negotiate contracts and provide representation to members at work and help them navigate workplace and benefit issues. Our union is a strong advocate for employee issues at work, with political leaders and in communities where members live.
The union is governed by an elected Executive Board and Council. Daily operations are handled by a professional staff directed and managed by Executive Director Ray Goforth. With union headquarter in Seattle, offices are also maintained in Everett, Washington and Wichita, Kansas.
