Jan 17 (Reuters) - Boeing Co said it would extend the terms of its previous contract for 23,000 employees represented by the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace (SPEEA).

"The proposed four year contract would roll forward the current agreement, except for proposals explicitly agreed upon by both parties during negotiations", Boeing said.

The negotiations with SPEEA have been going on since April 2012. The previous contract expired in October.
