National Labor Relations Board rules in favor of Boeing micro-unit challenge

North Charleston, S.C., September 9, 2019– The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) today agreed with Boeing’s (NYSE: BA) position that the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers’ (IAM) petition to unionize flight line teammates at Boeing South Carolina (BSC), represented an illegal “micro-unit.”

“We are pleased that the Board agreed that the IAM’s attempt to isolate our flight line teammates from the rest of the site is prohibited by federal law,” said Brad Zaback, 787 program vice president.“With the clarity that today’s NLRB decision brings, we will go forward as one Boeing South Carolina team to work with our teammates directly, to meet tomorrow’s challenges, and continue the site’s great work to build the world’s most advanced airplanes.”
