Congressman Joe Wilson released the following statement after the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced it has withdrawn the case against Boeing:


“For the past year, the President’s National Labor Relations Board has played the role of a Big Labor Bully by threatening to cut the jobs of hardworking and deserving South Carolinians by stalling the expansion of the 787 Dreamliner project in Charleston. I am very pleased to see that the International Association of Machinists requested to withdraw its complaint against Boeing and that the NLRB approved their request.

“Boeing chose to locate to South Carolina due to its welcoming business climate due in large part to its right-to-work laws. Instead of focusing on ways to promote the influence of unions in our nation’s workforce, I urge the current Administration to enact policies protecting the rights of workers and allowing for growth in our private sector through job creation.”
