Governor Nikki Haley (R) and the South Carolina Congressional Delegation vowed to fight the pro-Union Boss National Labor Relations Board and its claim that Boeing moved its production of the 787 Dreamliner to a right-to-work-state as retaliation to workers in the Washington-based facility.
“We will protect Boeing,” Haley said Thursday.
“This is an absolute assault on a great corporate citizen and on South Carolina’s right-to-work status,”Gov. Nikki Haley said.”We will continue to do everything we can to protect that status, and to stand with companies like Boeing who understand what it means to take care of their employees without the interference of a meddlesome, self-serving union. This bullying will not be tolerated in South Carolina.”
Graham called the NRLB decision, “One of the worst examples of unelected bureaucrats doing the bidding of special interest groups that I’ve ever seen” and accused the NLRB of, “Doing the bidding of the unions at great cost to South Carolina and our nation’s economy.”
Graham also said the National Labor Relations Board’s request shouldn’t be taken seriously.
“This is nothing more than a political favor for the unions who are supporting President Obama’s re-election campaign. Unfortunately, it comes at the expense of hundreds of jobs in South Carolina and thousands of jobs nationwide. There is no doubt that if the National Labor Relations Board’s claim against Boeing moves forward, it will have a chilling effect on job growth in my state and in right-to-work states across the country. Using the federal government as political weapon to protect union bosses at the expense of American jobs cannot be tolerated. I intend to use every tool at my disposal as a United States Senator to stop the President from carrying out this malicious act.”
Scott said Wednesday, “Such heavy-handed tactics on behalf of the President’s union supporters are an affront to the people of the Palmetto State who voted overwhelmingly in support of a constitutional amendment guaranteeing workers the right to secret ballots in union elections.”
