NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) -

Some Boeing employees will be voting on whether or not they want to join a union.

Those workers are flight line readiness technicians and flight line readiness technician inspectors. 

There's 178 of them.

The National Labor Relations Board ruled that they can vote to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace workers.

They will vote next Thursday by secret ballot.

Boeing released the following statement on the ruling: 

Today, a Regional Director of the National Labor Relations Board issued a ruling that will permit the micro-unit petition filed at the Boeing South Charleston, by the International Association of Machinists in March to proceed to a vote.

Boeing is extremely disappointed in this decision and will appeal the ruling. Our position on this issue has not changed: we strongly believe that this micro-unit is prohibited under federal labor law and is not in the best interests of our teammates, our site or our community. Boeing will share all relevant facts and information about the realities of bargaining as a micro-unit. Our teammates, their families and this community need to understand the potential impact this decision might have.
