Graham NLRB Complaint against Boeing 
NGTON  U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) complaint against Boeing. 
This one the worst examples unelected bureaucrats doing the bidding special interest groups that Ive ever seen. this case, the NLRB doing the bidding the unions great cost South Carolina and our nations economy. 
It makes perfect sense for world-class company like Boeing diversify their production capabilities. Boeing made solid business decision coming South Carolina, and welcome them with open arms. They could have gone anywhere, but they knew that South Carolina was great place business. Their decision open their new facility North Charleston will pay dividends for the company, its workers, and our state for many years come. Its decision that will stand the test time. 
If successful, the NLRB complaint would allow unions hold virtual veto over business decisions. Left their own devices, the NLRB would routinely punish right-to-work states that value and promote their pro-business climates. The current makeup the NLRB Board has been skewed against business. This action will not allowed stand. 
I would surprised any court recognized the legitimacy this complaint. Its pretty easy see that its heart, this about union politics. Senator, will everything power, including introducing legislation cutting off funding for this wild goose chase, stop the NLRBs frivolous complaint.

From european planet labor website(some wording oddities are just due translation (from french)): 
United States: Boeing could not able open its new plant South Carolina because antiunion behavior 
Experts from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) turned the administrative justice prevent the start production Boeing's new factory South Carolina. The reason that the aircraft manufacturer allegedly chose this location the basis antiunion criteria. (Ref. 110281) 
The NLRB, which arbitrates conflicts between unions and businesses, blaming Boeing. Legal expert Lafe Solomon filed complaint against the aircraft manufacturer, accusing the company breaking Federal Law investing into another assembly line for its 787 Dreamliner production South Carolina. The lawyer thinks that Boeing management decided relocate production partly retaliate against unionized workers for past strikes its Puget Sound site Washington State. The management says they were too inclined strike. Yet, A worker's right strike fundamental right guaranteed the National Labor Relations Act, Solomon said. 
The NLRB expert looked the Boeing case the request the National Association Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW). The union represents 25,000 Boeing workers Washington State, where the manufacturing owns many factories. 2007, Boeing management launched negotiations with IAMAW representatives Puget Sound. There, Boeing already assembled Dreamliners month and wanted open another line produce three more 787 each month. Talks lingered. Finally, October 2009, the management decided invest South Carolina, right work state where unionists arent welcome. 

Two billion dollars were invested Charleston, 1,000 employees were recruited, and the site was supposed open July until the NLRB meddled in. Lafe Solomon investigated for two years, notably looking Boeing executives declarations the local media. article published the Seattle Times reads that the overriding factor move South Carolina was not the business climate. And was not the wages were paying today. was that cannot afford have work stoppage, you know, every three years. Boeing management has listed strikes Puget Sound since 1989. 2008, lasted for days and cost the company $1.8bn, which was particularly noticed. packing, the IAMAW leaders are saying that the manufacturer retaliating against past strike and trying deter future social movements. 
Boeings general counsel, Michael Luttig, said: This claim legally frivolous and represents radical departure from both NLRB and Supreme Court precedent. For his part, Lafe Solomon said that didnt want the Charleston site close and hoping for out-
of-court settlement between Boeing and the IAMAW. the parties cannot arrive settlement, the next step will hearing before NLRB administrative law judge set for June 14. The case could last for years.

You retired with your integrity, which makes you far wealthier than Sen. Dement will ever be.

Senator Dement weighs in. Someone might want tell him that the Board independent agency, and the cojmposition the five member Board traditionally the subject agreement between Democrats and Republicans Capitol
And someone might also advise Boeing that the next time they make unlawful decision assign work based whether plant not unionized, they might want keep their mouth shut when they are talking the press. 
Damn, missed calling. could have been management consultant. "Look, put the work South Carolina and just don't tell the Seattle Times why you did it. And the NLRB asks, tell them the decision was based legitimate economic and business considerations." For such work, would have retired far wealthier than right now, and doesn't seem complicated.
