Graham on the NLRB Lawsuit against Boeing

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the decision by an administrative law judge to deny The Boeing Company’s motion to dismiss the NLRB lawsuit.


Graham said:


“The NLRB’s administrative law judge’s ruling is not surprising given the history of these cases.  More rulings against Boeing are likely."


“Right now Boeing is stuck in what amounts to a union-controlled NLRB Star Chamber whose sole purpose is to extract a pound of flesh from the company."


“Eventually Boeing will break free from the union-dominated process and move to a truly independent court of law.  It’s there Boeing ultimately prevails over this frivolous NLRB complaint."


“South Carolina earned the right to build these airplanes and no unelected bureaucracy is going to take that away from us.”
