Boeing cutting ribbon on $750 million SC plant

Jun 10, 2011 4:10:00 AM - thestate.com
Gov. Nikki Haley and Boeing officials are officially opening a South Carolina aircraft assembly plant that is the center of a National Labor Relations Board dispute.

A ribbon cutting is being held Friday at the North Charleston plant where Boeing will assemble its new 787 jetliners. The $750 million plant represents the largest single industrial investment in South Carolina history.

The plant is also the target of a complaint filed by the NLRB claiming that Boeing built the plant in South Carolina, a right-to-work state, because it was concerned about strikes by union workers in Washington state.

A hearing on that complaint is being held next Tuesday in Seattle. Three days later, a U.S. House of Representatives committee holds a hearing in North Charleston on the issue.
