Government battle between NLRB and Boeing Company

Posted on: September 13, 2011

The House of Representatives is planning to introduce a bill that would prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from ordering any company to close plants or relocate workers, even if a company flouts labor laws. As you may recall, Boeing is planning to shut down a new production line for its 787 airplane in Washington State and relocate it to the right-to-work state of South Carolina.

The most important points in this article from Fox News are two-fold. The first point is that the House is trying to stop government intervention into a private company. What right does the government to say that a private company can’t do work in any other state even if it is a right-to-work state? A right-to-work state basically gives a choice for workers to be union or non-union. Most of these states are non-union. Business groups also agree that NLRB has overstepped its bounds, and say no agency should have the right to dictate where a company can or cannot create jobs

The second point is what the union representatives of Boeing are saying as well as AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Frank Larkin, a spokesman for the Machinists union that brought the Boeing complaint, said the bill changes the rules in the middle of the game in order to benefit Boeing. He pointed to past misconduct by the company, including overcharging the government and committing serious ethical violations. He further states, “Large corporations like Boeing have proven over and over that they need regulation
and oversight, not amnesty.”

So now these union thugs want to control private businesses. What about their rights? I’ve worked for private companies for a good many years and find that a good private business takes care of their workers because they know that their workers are their best assets for the company. I’ve also worked for government agencies and found that you are only a number and nobody cares
about you and your goals. I’ll take private business over government any day.

Unfortunately, this won’t be resolved any time soon. The Boeing case is being heard by an administrative law judge in Seattle. It could
be months or years before it is resolved.

The libtards don’t get that they are the reason that our economy is such lousy condition. We have to throw these guys out before they do any further damage to our country.
Blessings on you and yours
