NLRB lawsuit against Boeing 'could hurt workers'
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — Gov. Nikki Haley has told a congressional committee that the National Labor Relations Board complaint against Boeing has the potential to affect workers across America.
Haley testified Friday in North Charleston before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The panel wrapped up the hearing after more than three hours of testimony.
The NLRB has sued Boeing, saying it built a $750 million assembly plant in South Carolina in retaliation against Washington state workers who went on strike three years ago.
Haley says the complaint could chill the ability of companies to expand from state to state and make foreign companies think twice before bringing jobs to America.
South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson told the panel the complaint is the shot heard round the business world.
