The controversy over the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) action against Boeing continues. Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has issued a subpoena to the NLRB for Boeing-related documents, The Hill
The California Republican’s subpoena relates to the NLRB complaint about Boeing’s decision to move a production line for its new Dreamliner plane to South Carolina from Washington state. The NLRB charged Boeing was discriminating against its unionized workers in Washington. South Carolina is a right-to-work state.
Republicans have strongly criticized the NLRB over the issue.
"NLRB's action in the case against Boeing has the potential to create a job-killing precedent just as U.S. manufacturers are working toward economic recovery,” Issa said. "As this matter could take years to resolve and create even more crippling uncertainty for job creators, it is imperative that Congress get complete facts about NLRB's rationale and its decision-making process . . . without further delay."
