The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers might meet again with interested Boeing South Carolina employees, according to the Charleston Regional Business Journal, which reports that about 100 employees attended last week’s meeting.
The union invited workers to a meeting focused on their legal rights and employee protections.
A union leader says they have maintained contact with supporters at the South Carolina facility, which employs about 6,100 people.
The journal reports a Boeing spokeswoman says it’s the same union that made the disparaging comments about the quality of South Carolina workers when the company built a new plant in North Charleston.
She also says the company wants its employees to have the freedom to choose whether they want to join a union.
South Carolina’s right-to-work law allows employees that option.
