The IAM recently filed a lawsuit against the GOP-led National Labor Relations Board, alleging that NLRB exceeded its authority by declaring an IAM bargaining unit at Boeing South Carolina invalid.
The NLRB recently ruled that the IAM can’t unionize the 176 flight line workers at the Boeing South Carolina campus. This voided a Regional NLRB decision and the IAM’s 2018 win at the North Charleston, SC facility.
Federal labor board in Boeing SC ruling exceeded authority, according to union lawsuit The Charleston (SC) Post and Courier
“It will be an important decision if the court reverses the board, as it should,“ said IAM General Counsel Mark Schneider. “But at the end of the day it’s about vindicating these workers’ rights to have a union.”
We are challenging a ruling by the National Labor Relations Board, which nullified an election won by Boeing South Carolina Flight Line workers to be represented by the IAM. https://t.co/N7DGTht7HO
