Several years ago, Boeing Aircraft had a major strike in the their home state of Washington. It was long costly and nasty on both sides. Boeing has decided to expand their business into South Carolina and build a new plant there creating over 1,000 new jobs in the right to work state. Please keep in mind they are not reducing the work force in Washington State, just building a new aircraft in South Carolina
Enter the Unions and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). They are now suing Boeing to stop the plant from being built in South Carolina. They claim Boeing is doing that to avoid dealing with Unions and that is illegal. Remember, NO jobs are being lost in Washington State. Their claim? During the strike, Boeing threatened to move their plant operations.
Boeing will spend millions of dollars defending their proposed move. 1,000+ jobs will be delayed or lost in South Carolina as the law suit progresses. Boeing could lose the contract if the delays take too long. By the way, the contract is with the US Government, how’s that for additional power. If the NCLB loses the lawsuit, they could have the Government cancel the contract. Also remember President Obama recently packed the NLRB with pro Union Members.
This administration is too close to Unions. They will do anything to pander to the Unions for their money and votes, even if it hurts economic recovery.
2012 is coming!!!!!!!
