SEATTLE (AP) – Boeing on Tuesday asked a judge in Seattle to dismiss a case brought by the National Labor Relations Board that accuses the plane maker of breaking the law when it built a non-union production line in South Carolina.
The complaint by NLRB acting general counsel Lafe Solomon accused Boeing Co. of illegally retaliating against union workers for past strikes by adding a non-union assembly line for its new 787 passenger jet in South Carolina. The NLRB said Boeing also should move that assembly work to unionized plants in Washington state, where other 787s are assembled.
At the opening of a hearing on the case Tuesday, Boeing attorney William Kilberg said the legal dispute has cast a shadow over the company. He said the process has affected Boeing, its employees, its supplies and its investments. “It’s made life very, very difficult for Boeing,” he said.
So much for job creation and economic growth. Looks like Obama is bullying non-union jobs and saying union jobs are more important than non-union jobs. Obama is crazy about GM, Ford, and Chrysler, but yet he is silent on Mercedes Benz, Hyundai/Kia, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and BMW’s success in the South. It is because they are non-union.
We need to vote the guy with big red hair and red nose and black shoe out of the office ASAP.
