House panel takes up NLRB complaint against Boeing

Jun 17, 2011 7:26:00 AM - thestate.com
A congressional panel is holding a hearing in South Carolina on a National Labor Relations Board complaint against aircraft manufacturer Boeing over a non-union jet assembly line built in the state.

The U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government convenes Friday in North Charleston with four GOP committee members.

Gov. Nikki Haley and the NLRB's chief attorney will testify. A judge in Seattle is hearing the complaint, but the committee is investigating what was behind it.

The NLRB says Boeing built an assembly line for its new 787 aircraft in South Carolina to avoid unionized workers in Washington state. Boeing has challenged the complaint, saying no union workers lost jobs. South Carolina is a right-to-work state, meaning workers don't have to join a union to work at a job site.
