COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will take part in a gathering at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington to criticize the National Labor Relations Board's complaint that Boeing Co. illegally retaliated against union workers.
Haley will be at a news conference on Tuesday with U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee as well as U.S. Chamber officials.
A complaint filed last month claims Boeing decided to build a new aircraft assembly line in right-to-work South Carolina to retaliate for a 2008 strike at a Washington state plant. The NLRB wants the 787 assembly work returned to Washington.
Boeing's lawyer says the NLRB complaint misquotes officials and mischaracterizes the company's position.
