    Boeing’s Charleston Employees Enter the Fight to Save Their Jobs From The Obama NLRB

    It must be maddening to have the government siding with your former union to destroy your jobs. Yet, that is what is occurring with the Machinists’ union (IAM) having filed a charge against Boeing for opening its second 787 assembly line in Charleston, SC, a plant that used to be represented by the same union, and the union-controlled National Labor Relations Board going along with the union—thousands of South Carolinia jobs are at stake.

    Well, with the Obama NLRB and their former union trying to destroy their jobs, Boeing’s employees in Charleston are now beginning to fight back.

    It’s been suggested that the union and NLRB’s actions in the Boeing case may not have been brought forth had it not been for the fact that the South Carolina employees decertified the very union back in 2009. Of course, by asking one simple question, this could be a ‘case closed’ and both the union as well as the NLRB could find themselves in a very tenuous Catch-22 position:

    •Would the Machinists’ union have filed charges against Boeing if the workers in South Carolina did not decertify the union and had remained members instead?
    If the answer is ‘no,’ then union’s actions are nothing more than retaliation for employees in Charleston exercising their legal right to decertify the union and, through its position, the NLRB is aiding and abetting the union’s retaliation.

    However, if the answer is ‘yes,’ then the IAM might as well pack its bags and leave Charleston now (reportedly, the union is trying to still re-unionize the Boeing plant in SC)—for they will have announced their intent to see the Charleston jobs destroyed even if the union is the agents of those employees.

    Of course, in order to prove that, the South Carolina employees would need to be able to query those who are trying to kill their jobs—primarily the union and, secondarily, the NLRB. And, the only way they can do that is if they become a party in the case.

    In the last couple of weeks, no longer able to rely on the federal government to protect their rights, Boeing’s South Carolina employees have become engaged in their own fight to save their jobs—from the union and the Obama NLRB.

    From the designing and donning their own shirts to send a message (see above and below) to taking up the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation’s offer for free legal help.

    Now, with the NRTW’s help, Boeing’s South Carolina’s employees have entered the legal battle by filing a motion to “intervene” in the legal case between the NLRB, the IAM and Boeing

    Obama is trying to close "right to work" states down. He won't win.

    It didn't work in Wisconsin--and since only 7% of the entire work force of this nation even belongs to a union--this economic moron President--is not going to make a decision for American corporations as to which state they choose to operate in.

    Obama administration attacking right-to-work laws

    Senate Republicans say the Obama administration is intent on undermining the right-to-work laws that are in force in 22 states, as evidenced by a recent National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) complaint against Boeing.

    Right-to-work laws forbid workers from being required to join unions as a condition of their employment, and a Senate GOP bill aims to protect employers who wish to expand into right-to-work states.

    “For the last two years the major battle over labor relations was over card check over the secret ballot, over card check,” Tennessee GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander said. “Now I think it shifts to the right-to-work law and whether the administration can stop companies from locating in right-to-work states, which is obviously the goal of complaints like this.”

    Alexander has co-sponsored the bill together with South Carolina Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and Jim DeMint, and 32 other co-sponsors.

    The bill S 964 would protect the right of employers to discuss the costs associated with strikes and other consequences of having a unionized workforce without fear of reprisals. It would also prevent the NLRB from telling an employer where it has to employ workers.
