Yeah, the former Democratic Speaker of the House went there...
In fairness, Pelosi's advisers may have neglected to tell the former speaker that the South Carolina plant was once unionized before employees chose to exercise their rights to become union-free. Her advisers may have also neglected to tell the former speaker that the only reason the Machinists union likely filed charges against Boeing is because those employees chose to exercise their rights to become union free--which would be unlawful retaliation on the part of the union.
[Of course, the NLRB seems to be dragging its feet on the union's retaliation as it may complicate things for the union-run agency--like how the NLRB has allowed itself to become a union pawn and allow its prosecutorial process to become a joke by going after Boeing instead of the union for its apparent retaliaton.]
So, it could be the former speaker's advisers may have neglected to tell her all of those things. Or, it could also be that the former speaker simply chooses to ignore them.
Since the employees in South Carolina already made their decision to become union-free, it looks as though Nancy Pelosi's only solution will be to shut it down.
Now, Nancy, that doesn't sound too much like winning the future [WTF], does it?
- Is the Machinists’ “Smoking Gun” Theory Merely A Smoke Screen To Cover Its Own Actions?
- Behind the Obama Labor Board’s Bashing of Boeing is a Case Full of Irony and Union Failure
