On April 20, 2011, the Acting General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board issued a complaint against the Boeing Company alleging that it violated federal labor law by deciding to transfer a second airplane production line from a union facility in the state of Washington to a non-union facility in South Carolina for discriminatory reasons. A hearing is currently underway in Seattle before an NLRB administrative law judge.

It is important to note that the complaint represents allegations by the Acting General Counsel and the Board has made no findings on the allegations. At the ongoing hearing, both parties will have an opportunity to present evidence and argue in favor of their position. The decision of the judge may be appealed to the Board in Washington by the filing of exceptions by either party. Click here for a flow chart of the NLRB process.
