Congressman Tim Scott today released the following statement upon news of the National Labor Relations Board officially dropping their case against the Boeing Company in North Charleston, SC.
"This is certainly great news for the Lowcountry after months of unneeded stress being placed on the backs of 1,100 hardworking South Carolinians. The NLRB's insistence on putting Lowcountry jobs in jeopardy was a ridiculous stance to take from the beginning, and I am pleased they have finally dropped the matter.
However, the NLRB has established a dangerous precedent with their actions thus far -- that they are willing and ready to kill American jobs to support a political agenda. I will continue working with my colleagues in Congress to remove this ability, and to ensure the board once again acts as the unbiased entity it was chartered to be."
