DENVER–Colorado Attorney General John Suthers joined a bipartisan group of 16 attorneys general who are siding with The Boeing Company in its June 14 face-off with the National Labor Relations Board, reports Corporate Counsel Magazine.

NLRB general counsel Lafe Solomon filed in April an unfair labor practices complaint against Boeing, alleging the company built a plant in a right-to-work state in retaliation against union workers in Washington State. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner Final Assembly opened its doors June 10 in North Charleston, S.C.

“If the NLRB makes the decision to proceed with the enforcement action recommended by its general counsel, the Board will harm the very workers that it is charged with protecting—by encouraging their employers to open new facilities in other countries,” wrote Texas AG Greg Abbott and South Carolina’s Alan Wilson. “The NLRB’s unprecedented and unwarranted proceedings against Boeing create perverse incentives and harm the business climate in every State.”
