TAKE A STAND: Boeing Vote

Source: Live 5 Source: Live 5

The votes are in. They have been counted and it’s official: Workers at Boeing South Carolina will not be organizing.  

Almost 3,000 votes were cast.  More than 2,000 workers, 74 percent voted no to forming a union.  

If this had been a political election, it would be called a landslide victory or in the case of the International Association of Machinists, a landslide defeat.  

It should send a clear message that South Carolina, and especially the Lowcountry, is open for business and pro-business. 

It remains to be seen whether the IAM will go to the expense of making another run next year.   

For Boeing, it’s clear that despite a competitive market, employees are proud to work there and are optimistic about the future.  

So are we.
