NEWS FROM MIDWEST REGION

A Matter of Trust - Midwest Editorial

Trust doesn't happen overnight. It travels a long and winding road on its journey towards our beliefs. And when it arrives, it can be steadfastly held.

It seems there has been a loss of trust between some within our circle. Trust in the deepest sense of the word. How it happened, we do not know. It matters not. All that is important is the regaining of that trust.

When we, as employees, could no longer trust our companies, we trusted SPEEA.

When SPEEA answered our call, it trusted the leaders amongst us to organize.

When our organizing leaders trusted their fellow employees, petitions were signed, votes were taken and another bargaining unit was formed.

When our membership trusted the selected Contract Negotiation Teams, our contracts were signed.

It is truly amazing what a little trust can accomplish.

I ask us, now, to trust...

... our SPEEA staff
... our SPEEA leadership
... our fellow members
... ourselves

For one cannot give to another that which one does not, within himself, possess.

Robin Ryan gives hope to laid off workers

Best selling author and career coach, Robin Ryan, presented her "Everything you need to know to find your next job Faster" seminar in Wichita on November 10th. Over 150 people attended the seminar sponsored by SPEEA. Many of those who attended had either received their layoff notices or were expecting to receive them. Others were there to learn or update interviewing skills.

Ryan discussed many topics such as job search strategies, the hidden job market, resume and cover letters, a personal action plan, interviewing, and salary negotiations.

She explained her 60-second rule and five point agenda to use while interviewing. She suggested that an action plan be implemented that involved being accountable to one other person. They would act as your cheerleader to keep you moving forward.

The seminar ended with many people having their hope renewed in their abilities to achieve great results in their job searches. Thank you, Robin Ryan, for the boost to our self-esteem!

Robin Ryan's books are available at the SPEEA office. The set of three sells for $29.00, or you may purchase each book singly.

President's Corner
Once again, it's up to employees to "Save the Company!"

By Craig Buckham

Save the Company! This is the rallying cry, heard from time to time during my entire 22-year career at Boeing, but heard with renewed fervor since September 11. What does it mean?

To top management "Save the Company" means preserve the stock price. Management sees the Company as the steward of the $50 billion capital represented by the outstanding shares of stock. The purpose of the Company is to maximize the financial return to the owners of the stock. As stewards of the capital, the Company evaluates today's operations and possible future operations against the profit template. If an operation appears to not be an appropriate allocation of capital, it is eliminated. Airplanes, space systems and military systems are part of the product mix only as long as they turn a profit.

Employees are an important asset whose costs have a direct impact on profits - just like rivets. It is important to maximize "return on assets," either by increasing revenue or by decreasing assets (including employees!). Moving business to foreign countries - laying off employees here and hiring employees over there for less money - is acceptable to the Company and even desirable if the net costs are lower.

Ideal assets are those that can be quickly acquired when needed and then easily divested the moment they are not fully utilized. In an environment where these factors are reality, it is desirable for the Company to meet its business goals by reducing assets and costs through contracting, outsourcing and offloading.

As employees concerned about the long-term future of Boeing and its legacy, we see things differently. We see Boeing as a producer of high-quality airplanes, military and space systems, and services associated with these products. We are stewards of a legacy of achievement in Aerospace. We recognize that the Company has succeeded because it has produced innovative and better products. Boeing is a success because it has matched the needs and dreams of its customers and improved processes used to design, manufacture and support the products and services it produces. People are not only Boeing's most valuable asset; they are the source of all value the Company has created.

There is no limit to how productive employees can be. There is no limit to what we can do for our Company. There is no limit to the value we can create for Boeing.

We clearly see that success for Boeing is success for our customers, our families, our communities, the United States, and ourselves. Done right, shareholders will be handsomely rewarded as well.

The events of September 11 provide an extraordinary challenge.

Yes, let us - the employees who built this Company-once again Save the Company. Let's retain our ability to produce Aerospace excellence, serve our customers and compete in all our markets. Let's take advantage of the energy, commitment and resolve of our employees. Let us position ourselves for success when the travel industry and the rest of the economy turn around.

SEPTEMBER

The kick-off negotiation survey for Puget Sound Prof & Tech, and Wichita Prof was published in the September SPOTLITE. Negotiation Preparation Committee members spent the following weeks compiling survey results.

SPEEA Staff member Jim Singletary moved from Wichita back to the Puget Sound area, to work as contract administrator out of our Tukwila office.

Following the September 11th terrorist attacks, Boeing announced plans to lay off employees over the next year, in order to reduce their Commercial headcount by 30,000. The first round of layoffs targeted employees to be laid off on December 14th, just prior to the Christmas holidays.

SPEEA began meeting with Boeing management, through our Partnership, on a regular basis trying to get the Company to agree to a number of mitigation efforts to ease the pain of the layoffs. The Company, however, failed to approve any of SPEEA's suggestions. Thus, SPEEA established the KCLA/SPEEA Cares Fund. Proceeds of the fund will be paid in equal portions to all SPEEA-represented employees laid off on December 14th, to help cover their pay through the holidays.

SPEEA met with WA Governor Gary Locke and U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell to reinforce support of federal aid for Boeing workers facing possible layoff.

George Yamamura talked to Council Reps about the "three questions" he created which are being utilized in the Company's workplace engagement activities: (1) What is your current job satisfaction level? (2) What is most important to you about your job? and (3) What are the biggest issues or greatest barriers to improving your organization? Managers are being asked to work with employees to find ways to address these issues and barriers.

OCTOBER

Representing SPEEA at the CLUW Convention (Coalition of Labor Union Women) on October 4-7 in Las Vegas were Linda Newell (Wichita) and Karen Hikel, Judy Campbell, & Kristin Farr (Seattle).

SPEEA sent Layoff Handbooks and related information to the nearly 600 SPEEA-represented employees who were included in the first round of 60-day Layoff Notices. A series of "Dealing with Layoff" seminars were scheduled.

A "Union Counselor Training" class was provided so that SPEEA leaders in the workplace would to be able to assist employees needing emergency assistance and counseling on resources during these times of downsizing.

NOVEMBER

Candidates were solicited for the Negotiation Teams for Puget Sound Profs & Techs, and Wichita Profs, whose contracts expire in December 2002.

To help employees who are being laid off in their job search, SPEEA hired career counselor Robin Ryan to conduct six seminars in the Puget Sound area and Wichita. Her seminars cover job search strategies and interviewing techniques.

Effective November 5th, SPEEA hired Pauline Tamblyn to fill the Comptroller position that will become vacant when Jimmie Bergeron retires this coming January after more than 27 years of service.

While in Washington, DC for the Fall CESO meeting, SPEEA delegates joined representatives from other unions in a meeting with the newly-appointed President & Chair of the Export-Import Bank John E. Robson.

DECEMBER

SPEEA arranged for it's third annual "Santa Day at SPEEA" where members could bring their kids for a convenient, free photo on Santa's lap. Special thanks to Gene Blackman (Tukwila) and Dave Fisher (Everett), and their helpers.

Throughout the year, SPEEA saved members thousands of dollars on discounted tickets to the Sonics, Wild Waves, the Opera, the Nutcracker, and other events.

During the year, SPEEA's DER Concerns Committee participated in regular meetings with the Company's BCA Regulatory Compliance Organization, in a Partnership effort initiated early in the year. The goal was to explore options and make recommendations to further our Commitment to Safety while enhancing the quality, cost, cycle time and morale. SPEEA's participation is important to assure changes do not take us out of the certification loop.

In other Partnership efforts, SPEEA worked with the Company in three targeted areas: Utilization ... Organizational Alignment ... and Knowledge Retention and Transfer.

By the end of 2001, 60-day Layoff notices had been issued to over 1,000 SPEEA-represented employees (614 targeted for layoff December 14th, and 399 targeted for layoff January 25th).

SPEEA Staff and leaders in the workplace monitored Company activities as they relate to redeployment to assure that our contractual provisions are adhered to (as they relate to contract personnel, new hires, layoffs, etc.)

SPEEA joined in sponsoring a Job Fair on Tuesday, December 11th to aid Boeing employees targeted for layoff in their search for other employment.

SPEEA joins rally to save 717 jobs

LONG BEACH, CA - SPEEA joined leaders and members of the Southern California Professional Engineering Association (SCPEA) for a "Save Our Jobs" rally December 6 as Boeing continued to position itself to do away with the 717 and open the door for designing and building a similar jetliner in Russia.

At press time, Boeing had not decided what to do with the 100-seat midrange jetliner. While saying the midrange aircraft has a limited future, Boeing holds agreements with Russian's Sukhoi and Ilyushin aircraft companies to design and produce a midrange jetliner that is similar to the 717. This new "717" has an expected market of up to 3,000 aircraft.

About 150 employees of the Long Beach plant attended the rally. News media from Long Beach and throughout Los Angeles attended the rally. Boeing issued a flurry of announcements in the days preceding the rally, refuting a number of the union's statements.

Several of the Company's statements contradicted earlier comments. Among those was that Boeing only employed 65 people at its Moscow Design Center and that the Moscow facility was laying off workers. Boeing's own announcements have said it employs 650 in Moscow. Corporate leaders have also said they plan to expand the Moscow facility.

"There has been no discussion of layoffs in Moscow," said Charles Bofferding, executive director of SPEEA.

A highlight of the rally was about a dozen special t-shirts that were thrown to the crowd. The t-shirts carried the phrase "Boeing - Just Say Nyet" and referenced employees desire for the Company to say NO to transferring production of a midrange jetliner to Russia.
