South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is firing back at efforts to unionize 7,500 workers at Boeing Corp.’s airline plant in Charleston.

“The International Association of Machinists has never, never believed in us,” Haley said in her State of the State address Wednesday. “They sued us, they tried to shut us down.

“So, every time you hear a Seattle union boss carry on about how he has the best interest of the Boeing workers in Charleston at heart, remember this: If it was up to that same union boss, there would be no Boeing workers in Charleston.”

Boeing is helping Haley amplify the anti-union message. Chaney Adams, spokeswoman for the Republican governor, said the aerospace giant paid for a new radio ad in which Haley urges Boeing’s South Carolina workers not to join the union.

    Those folks down there in South Carolina can’t read the news, I guess. Do they know that a lot of the fuselages that they send to Seattle for final work have to be torn apart and redone because of the sloppy and incompetent work being done in Charleston? Boeing is surely regretting its decision to hire those bozos. Pay competent people a decent wage with good benefits, treat them as partners, and they’ll work their butts off. Boeing/Seattle is a case in point.
