Boeing is not the only one who is fighting labor unions in order to stay in South Carolina. A South Carolina Boeing worker has filed labor charges against the union behind recent a recent federal complaint . Boeing employee Dennis Murray filed the charge against the International Association of Machinists (IAM) union and its Local 751-saying the union is abusing federal labor policy. He says the policy is to help workers protect their rights and that the NLRB complaint is a bully tactic. The NLRB says Boeing violated federal law by expanding in South Carolina, a right-to-work state, when Washington is a union state.
In the charge, Murray states that machinists union is “retaliating” against the South Carolina Boeing employees by calling for the 787 assembly plant to move back to Washington–eliminating more than a thousand jobs in South Carolina. The motion is pending appeal with the NLRB.
