Administrative Law Judge Dismisses Boeing's Motion To
An administrative law judge in Chicago has rejected out of hand
Boeing's motion to dismiss the government's complaint against the
planemaker for opening an assembly plant in right-to-work South
The case is set to resume July 6th. In his ruling, Judge
Clifford Anderson said that in his opinion, Boeing's motion was
"without merit and should be denied in its entirety."
Reuters reports that Boeing had petitioned the judge to throw
out the complaint lodged by the NLRB in April. The company said
that its concerns about protection from future labor actions are
legitimate. Boeing contended that no union worker has lost a job
because of the South Carolina location.
Boeing says if it loses this case, it will be forced to assemble
all of its Dreamliners in Washington State, and that several
thousand South Carolina workers would lose their jobs. The company
says that a strike in 2008 by the IAM was one reason for the delays
in bringing the Dreamliner to market, though there were many
reasons that the project is so far behind schedule.
