Oct 2, 2012

Boeing's union of engineers and technical workers has rejected the aerospace giant's first contract offer in ballots tallied Monday night.

Union leaders for the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace, or SPEEA, had recommended that the union's 23,000 members reject Boeing's four-year contract offer.

No strike is imminent.

The union said in a statement that the two sides would resume negotiations Tuesday.
