Can you read NITWIT?? Or is yer half brain rendered you to a AH moron....Try this....First open yer eyes,..helps!
The plant was a source of political controversy after the National Labor Relations Board brought a complaint against the aircraft manufacturer alleging the nonunion South Carolina plant was built in retaliation for past union strikes in Washington state.
The complaint was dropped late last year after the Machinists Union approved a contract extension and Boeing promised to build a new version of the 787 in Washington.
Jones said the complaint had no effect on relations between Boeing staff in Washington State and in South Carolina.
"They are right there with us. They are our partners," Jones said.

He told the workers: "You have made the state shine. You have put us on the map of the world economy."
Omama and his NLRB, Better not show up there...Ya All!!
