Dems want NLRB attorney's testimony delayed
Two ranking Democrats say a labor board attorney shouldn't have to testify about an ongoing lawsuit over South Carolina's Boeing plant.
U.S. Reps. Elijah Cummings and George Miller said Thursday in a letter to Rep. Darrell Issa that it was unethical to call on National Labor Relations Board Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon to answer questions about the agency's case against Boeing.
Solomon reluctantly agreed to appear Friday at a hearing of Issa's U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in North Charleston.
The NLRB says Boeing broke the law when it built a non-union passenger jet assembly line in South Carolina as retaliation against unionized Washington state workers.
An administrative judge in Seattle began considering the case this week. Boeing says no work was removed from Washington.
