Machinists prevail over Boeing in proceedings over appropriate bargaining unit in South Carolina facility

May 21, 2018

The Regional Director for Region 10 of the National Labor Relations Board rejected Boeing’s challenge to the appropriateness of a unit for a representation election involving Flight Readiness Technicians and Flight Readiness Technician Inspectors at Boeing’s South Carolina facility.

  Ruling in favor of the International Association of Machinists, the Regional Director found that the petitioned-for unit share a sufficiently distinct community of interest and therefore directed an election amongst just those employees.  Bredhoff & Kaiser represented the union in the representation hearing.  Boeing v. International Association of Machinists, Case Number 10-RC-215878 (May 21, 2018)
