However, did you ever hear that the suit was dropped?
Neither did I.
The Machinists convinced the NLRB to drop the suit after they secured a new contract with Boeing.
So Boeing is operating their South Carolina factory. On April 27th Boeing rolled out their first aircraft created at the SC factory. With all the trouble Washington state, the Union, and the feds gave Boeing, I just love the fact that they did not stamp the plane with "Made in the USA" but instead:
MADE WITH PRIDE
IN SOUTH CAROLINA
