Graham on NLRB Complaint against Boeing


WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) complaint against Boeing. 

“This is one of the worst examples of unelected bureaucrats doing the bidding of special interest groups that I’ve ever seen.  In this case, the NLRB is doing the bidding of the unions at great cost to South Carolina and our nation’s economy. 

“It makes perfect sense for a world-class company like Boeing to diversify their production capabilities.  Boeing made a solid business decision in coming to South Carolina, and we welcome them with open arms.  They could have gone anywhere, but they knew that South Carolina was a great place to do business.  Their decision to open their new facility in North Charleston will pay dividends for the company, its workers, and our state for many years to come.  It’s a decision that will stand the test of time.

“If successful, the NLRB complaint would allow unions to hold a virtual ‘veto’ over business decisions.  Left to their own devices, the NLRB would routinely punish right-to-work states that value and promote their pro-business climates.  The current makeup of the NLRB Board has been skewed against business.  This action will not be allowed to stand. 

“I would be surprised if any court recognized the legitimacy of this complaint.  It’s pretty easy to see that at its heart, this is about union politics.   As Senator, I will do everything in my power, including introducing legislation cutting off funding for this wild goose chase, to stop the NLRB’s frivolous complaint.”
