Obama Administration National Labor Relations Board Tries To Twist The Arm Of Boeing To Build A New Plant In Washington State

Boeing Must Add 787 Line After Union Retaliation, U.S. Says

Stunning.
An American company uses it ECONOMIC FREEDOM to build a brand new $750 Million dollar assembly plant in South Carolina.  The unions are pissed about their decision to build the plant in a "Right To Work State" - desperate for economic development in support of its 'vulnerable people'.  The Obama administration rules that Boeing should add a second shift for its 787 production in WASHINGTON - the government's hand reaching into the board room of a corporation where the union failed to do so.

"Boeing has every right under both federal law and its collective bargaining agreement to build additional U.S. production capacity outside of the Puget Sound region," Luttig said.

Rep. Tim Scott, a first-term North Charleston Republican on the House GOP leadership team, accused President Barack Obama of playing politics to appease his pro-labor allies.

"Such heavy-handed tactics on behalf of the president's union supporters are an affront to the people of the Palmetto State who voted overwhelmingly in support of a constitutional amendment guaranteeing workers the right to secret ballots in union elections," Scott said.

Obama's chief of staff, Bill Daley, was on Boeing's board of directors in October 2009 when it voted unanimously to build the Dreamliner's new final-assembly line at the North Charleston site, a $750 million investment projected to create 3,800 jobs in South Carolina.
