The Obama-Packed NLRB (National Labor Relations Board) is trying to prevent Boeing from opening a second plant to produce its new 787 Dreamliner in South Carolina, a right to work state. They want Boeing to build all of their 787s in Washington state which is unionized. This is but another example of the State Run economy, Crony Capitalism, and outright Fascism. Does a private company not have a right to decide in what state it will operate, or is this up now up to the federal government?
From Boeing’s CEO, Jim McNerney: “Contrary to the NLRB’s claim, our decision to expand in South Carolina resulted from an objective analysis of the same factors we use in every site selection,” McNerney wrote. No existing work is being sent to South Carolina and hiring in Washington continues” he said.
“This is nothing more than bullying by the labor unions. This is Harry Reid and President Obama carrying their water and making sure our companies are hurting because of it. All they’re doing is getting the friendliness of other companies that are going to take our jobs. It’s a terrible thing for South Carolina and terrible for our country. I’ll tell you, while this happened in South Carolina, I won’t let this happen to any other governor in other state. We need to allow our companies to create jobs where they want to. We’re very grateful for Boeing in South Carolina. What the president needs to do is ask the NLRB to step down. This is the union’s last attempt to be relevant and it’s not working,” Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) said on “FOX & Friends” this morning. RealClearPolitics.com
Some good news: According to the Wall Street Journal, congressional Republicans are demanding the National Labor Relations Board produce a raft of documents concerning the board’s complaint against Boeing Co. and other decisions the lawmakers say overstep the board’s authority.
