Union Claims Boeing Videotaped Lunchtime "Solidarity Marches," Seized Cellphones with Video Cameras Illegally

The SPEEA says Boeing violated labor laws, is currently in heated contract negotiations with the company


Boeing violated labor laws by videotaping employees engaged in solidarity marches, seizing their cameras and deleting photos, a union alleged Monday.

The Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace union said it filed the two unfair labor practice charges after receiving complaints from members at multiple Boeing locations, related to lunchtime solidarity events by SPEEA members in Portland and Everett in support of contract negotiations.
