When reading the following info, I would like to understand if there is any risk of strike in Spirit?
In that case, this could again creates problems for Boeing in general and also to B787.
Do you have more info on this?

It seems there are some external support to engineers and this could be a push for strong negociations.

Cheers

They should make it more explicit that the report you linked to is just a press release from the union (who might have outsourced it to the editorial board of Pravda, by the looks of it) and not a valid piece of news from Air & Cosmos.


Read this very carefully, I shall write this only once!

Quoting JPRM1 (Thread starter):

Yes. The SPEEA members voted 90% to reject the contract and authorize a strike. That doesn't mean they're on strike, but it means the negotiators can call one at any time. I think they're in arbitration now.

Quoting JPRM1 (Thread starter):

Major issues for the other production lines, I'd expect, but not so much for the 787...Spirit has been reported as being one of the best performing suppliers, running significantly ahead of the Everett final assembly line. All the Spirit bits needed for the 787 flight test program have been in Everett for months, if not years, and I doubt that any Spirit strike would last all the way until the Everett burns through the parts that Spirit has already built.

Tom.
