New complaint filed in battle over Boeing

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - An employee from the Boeing plant in North Charleston is suing the union at the center of the national labor Dispute for unfair labor practices.

The complaint, which is one of two complaints that have been filed in the battle of Boeing, was filed with the National Labor Relations Board on Wednesday. Court is currently in day two of hearings over the NLRB's original complaint.

The new complaint says the International Association of Machinists is retaliating against Boeing employees in South Carolina because a non-union production line was built here instead of in Washington.

The original complaint says that Boeing built the plant in North Charleston in response to strikes from union workers in Washington.
