Boeing Workers Vote Against Unionization

Posted February 16, 2017 10:18 pm | Filed under Featured, Local News, News

Production workers at Boeing’s South Carolina plant have rejected an effort to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers with a 2097 to 731 vote. National Labor Relations Board rules require workers wait a year before another union vote.

Wednesday’s balloting came just two days before President Donald Trump was slated to make the first visit by a sitting president to the sprawling North Charleston complex, where Boeing makes the 787 Dreamliner. Mr. Trump is coming to town Friday for the rollout of the first 787-10 model.
