Tech and safety pilots vote to approve contract

The members of the SPEEA Pilots and Instructors Unit (SPIU) voted to approve a new collective bargaining agreement on March 11.

The contract effective date is March 12, 2024 through March 30, 2028.

The most contentious issue in these talks was pay. The pilots’ new contract includes 8.5% raises in 2024, with some of that getting paid retroactive. They also received a signing bonus.

The SPIU is made up of technical and safety pilots who perform three main functions for Boeing:

  • They are the company’s liaisons to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and global aviation safety regulators.
  • They work closely with Boeing customers to ensure the airlines have comprehensive, safe operating plans in place.
  • They are on-call consultants available to help flight crews understand the nuances of safely flying Boeing aircraft.
