SHARE NLRB dismisses Machinists’ complaint against Boeing in S.C.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — The National Labor Relations Board has dismissed a complaint filed by the Machinists union against Boeing stemming from the union’s attempt to organize workers at the company’s North Charleston operations.

The union announced last month it was delaying a union vote among 3,200 Boeing eligible production workers, citing what it called a toxic atmosphere and political interference. The union also filed an unfair labor practice complaint with the NLRB.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that the board’s Claude Harrell in Atlanta dismissed the complaint saying there was insufficient evidence to show that Boeing violated federal labor laws.

The union has said it will try to hold another vote later. The earliest another union vote can be held is October.
