Governor wants President Obama to chime in on NLRB lawsuit

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - As President Barack Obama puts the final touches on his jobs speech for Thursday night, Gov. Nikki Haley has a sticking point she wants him to address.

"The only thing I want to hear from him and the only thing the people of this country want to hear from him is that he's going to disband the National Labor Relations Board," said Gov. Haley."Or get them to step down from attacking a great American company that chose business in South Carolina as opposed|to going overseas."

Haley's talking about Boeing's decision to build a plant in North Charleston and the lawsuit the NLRB filed against the airline manufacturing company.

The NLRB claims Boeing violated labor laws by moving a new production line for its 787 airplane from Washington state to South Carolina.

The agency claims Boeing is punishing union workers for past strikes.
