Obama vs Boeing
Made popular 755 days ago in
This week, the National Labor Relations Board filed a complaint over Boeing's plans to open a plant in South Carolina. Boeing is not seeking to outsource work to a foreign country. Boeing has chosen a manufacturing location in the U.S. based on cost and risk factors. It plans to open a second production line of its 787 Dreamliner plane there. The plant has been built.
Boeing executives have acknowledged that they were reluctant to expand in Washington state because of the risk of a labor strike. Boeing's workers in Washington belong to the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. Its plant in South Carolina would be nonunion.
Boeing is not being alarmist. Workers in Washington went on strike for nearly two months in 2008. The company said it couldn't reach a deal with the union to expand operations at Puget Sound, Wash., for the Dreamliner.
Seizing on the words of Boeing executives, the NLRB inferred that the decision to choose South Carolina was retaliation against the union. The labor board demands that Boeing open the second production line in Washington.
Retaliation? Sounds more like the U.S. government - the NLRB - is retaliating against Boeing for seeking a better business climate in South Carolina. Appointments by President Barack Obama have given the five-member NLRB a pro-labor tilt.
Boeing says it will move forward with plans to begin assembly in South Carolina in July. The plant is ready for about 1,000 workers. The NLRB filed its complaint 18 months after Boeing announced it would expand in South Carolina.

Not surprising when it's so obvious that the unions are a wing of the democRAT party and in fact own the democrat politicians through their campaign cash and their free labor to "get out the vote" and assist in intimidation tactics and voting fraud. They deserve each other and the country deserves neither.
