“We’ll be at the show promoting their skills to companies as part of Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire’s efforts to grow our state’s aerospace sector.”

“We represent more than 21,000 of the most highly skilled engineers and technical workers in the world,” McCarty said. “We’ll be at the show promoting their skills to companies as part of Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire’s efforts to grow our state’s aerospace sector.”

The video will be displayed at the show and available for viewing on the SPEEA website starting Monday, June 20.

The union officials are available to media representatives at the show by visiting the exhibit E-106 in Hall 3 or contacting Dugovich by email at billd@speea.org or calling 001-206-683-9857.
