    Boeing’s anti-union campaign hits workers where they eat
    A trio of table toppers that have shown up in the Boeing Co.’s employee cafeteria are enough to give any supporter of organized labor a case of indigestion.

    Boeing placed the table-toppers — which are usually used by restaurants to promote menu items — in the cafeteria of its North Charleston campus to get its anti-union message across to employees. The International Association of Machinists last week filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to hold a union election for more than 2,400 eligible workers at the facility. A vote has been scheduled for April 22.
    The table-toppers use humor to get Boeing’s point across. For example, one table-topper mimics the nutrition labels found on most packaged foods, asking, “Is the IAM Healthy for You?” Another shows a picture of a piece of rotting fruit with the warning: “If you go on strike, you don’t get a paycheck, your benefits can stop and you cannot collect unemployment.” A third proclaims: “We don’t need a union. We don’t want a union.”

    I can't understand how so many people here in S. Carolina can be so anti union. I understand their right wing views on issues of religion, abortion, gay marriage, gun rights etc. But why they are so against unions puzzles me. Maybe if they were open minded and really understood what " Right to Work" means they would see it benefits the company more than the workers............I don't know why the term "union dues" pisses them off so much.

    It took 2 votes and maybe 2 years but they came around at Mack in Winnsboro,SC. After they closed some used their seniority to come up here. The politicians make sweet tax deals to move there and when the tax deal expires.........the company leaves.

    The company and politicians serve each other at the expense of people who built the companies who move there and the hatred and divisions the unionbusters are paid to create there...and the hopes of the South Carolinians wrecked when companies move on to the next whoring politician selling there people out or out of country.

    Ms. Haley is a whore who sells out her state and our nation for hers and hers alones personal gain. There's a nice hot place in Hell waiting for her. She has no clue the damage and hurt she plays huge role in.

    Is this the place which go over a $900 million dollar tax deal to build there?


    What gets me is these people act so knowlegdeable about the free market and personal responsibility and hate giving welfare............yet they pay for $900 million plus building for a company who can clearlly afford it themselves.


    It's a two faced mentality which I really can't respect.


    When Mack went there in the late 80's I think they got $18/hr plus bennies up here. Them people were happy to work for $8/hr plus less bennies. They became the slaves they fought to keep, willingly. Just because it pays more than Piggly Wigglyand Hardees they think they're not. Close as you can get thougg..
    in alot of ways.
    They believe they're good. They think unions are greedy.


    I think the mentality is evil and greedy.
    They're "hungry" and people lower standards for others like themselves that way.

    They're all about the plantation owner. They have no idea that the owner wouldn't be able to be rich without them. The shareholders can't build the planes. The workers do. And they have every right to bargain they're own pay. BOEING is gonna leave when the tax deals done. They should go for as much as they can get while they're there ( Haley is). There locked into a huge tax deal which we all make up for in taxes. They ain't closing till its expired so the people should act as the free market capitalists that they're convinced they are.....and take like a calitalist does....with a union contract...
    .....Just like Haley and BOEING have done.

    The 10 Most Unionized U.S. Cities - US News



    I am thinking of moving south some day,(we can transfer to another terminal) and Charleston S.C. was a possibility, but i don't think so anymore. I don't think my liberal views fit in down there, so it looks like Florida at least there are a lot more Yankees down there and i will not stand out so much with my New England accent.

    Apparently she is the Republican darling because of her anti-union views! First female, minority governor of SC. Sounds very familiar! Both Republicans, both very anti-union. She might have some competition from our darling here in New Mexico.

    South Carolina governor takes aim at union "bullies" in Boeing labor vote

    (Reuters) - South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley considers the bid to unionize workers at Boeing Co's North Charleston plant a threat to one of her state's corporate crown jewels, and she is turning to radio, speeches and social media to denounce the campaign.

    "We don't need their bully middleman tactics between our associates and their employer," she wrote on Twitter last month. It was a message in keeping with Haley's previous declarations that she is a "union buster" who wears high heels to kick out organized labor "thugs" seeking to gain a foothold in the state.
    If she stands up to Boeing's biggest union, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), and wins, it could enhance the second-term governor's prospects for higher office, political experts said. That could include a Cabinet post in a future Republican administration, a national party leadership position, or even being a vice presidential running mate in 2016.

    Elect Haley!
    It's all about her.

    Want more imports, jobs leaving our borders, people who work and still need government assistance, more welfare, more cheap imports, more people who can't afford a family, more dicvorce, more abortions, more people who can't afford homes, more bankruptcies, more drug, alcohol, mental problems, suicides? Want the businessmen to have all power and employees none? Want the dollar to be replaced as currency reserve? Want America to fall?

    Elect Haley!
    She's your girl!
