UNIONS JUST NEVER GIVE UP . . . DO THEY?
Though workers in South Carolina’s new Boeing Company plant recently booted out union bosses trying to organize them, local representatives from the International Association of Machinists (IAM) still linger around Charleston.
“Well, pretty much, they’ve been around for a few months now,” said Anthony Riedel of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation. Sources tell TheDC that union bosses have even showed up at the homes of Boeing’s new workers in attempts to pitch their cases for unionization.
Congressman Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, told TheDC he thinks it’s “bitterly ironic” for Charleston IAM reps to try to organize the same workers their Seattle counterparts hope will be out of a job should the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rules against Boeing in a pending union-led case.
