The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has released a new television spot attacking the National Labor Relations Board for its case against the Boeing Co.
The labor board has sued Boeing, claiming the aerospace company retaliated against its Machinists for labor strikes in the Puget Sound area when it picked South Carolina for a new 787 assembly line. Boeing has disputed the allegations.
The Chamber’s ad claims that lawsuit has put in danger 4,000 jobs at Boeing’s North Charleston site.
“Telling employers where they can locate and who they can hire won’t grow the economy or create new jobs,” Glenn Spencer, executive director of the Workforce Freedom Initiative, said in the Chamber’s press release. “Elected officials should stop the NLRB from pursuing its economically destructive agenda — now and next year.”
The labor board’s case is being heard by an administrative law judge in Seattle.
You won’t see the ad run on television here in Washington state. So far, it’s only airing in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
