Governor Nikki Haley will join Senator Lindsey Graham, Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander, business leaders and U.S. Chamber of Commerce officials today to discuss the complaint the National Labor Relations Board made against Boeing.
Last month, the NLRB filed a complaint against Boeing for building its 787 Dreamliner Final Assembly facility in North Charleston. The complaint stated that Boeing specifically came to South Carolina to avoid unions after an anti-union strike in Washington. Because of this, the NLRB says Boeing violated federal law, but Boeing says it came for the work environment and business climate.
Now, the governor, state senators, business leaders and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are meeting in Washington to talk about their concerns over the complaint.
In a previous press conference, Governor Haley said Boeing will stay in South Carolina, and she says this move by the NLRB attracts more businesses to come to the state because of how state lawmakers are rallying around Boeing to handle the complaint.
