Statement from Gov. Henry McMaster on NLRB International Association of Machinists Ruling at Boeing North Charleston 



COLUMBIA, S.C. – Gov. Henry McMaster today released the following statement in response to the NLRB's decision to allow the International Association of Machinists to pursue unionization at the Boeing North Charleston plant:

“South Carolina is great because of our great people. The Boeing Company recognized this fact, and that’s why they’ve invested so heavily in our state. Out-of-state union bosses have no interest in the future of South Carolina or this remarkable company. Their presence in North Charleston is about as welcome as a Category 5 hurricane. With more South Carolinians working today than at any other time in history, we aren’t going to let out-of-state labor unions ruin the wonderful working environment in our state.”
