Boeing, tried to build a plant in a right to work state, and the union members in Seattle were able to stop it from doing so, the the union got the backing of the government. Most likely the trademarks will go to Bimba in Mexico, the plants will close, and 18,000 union members will lose their jobs. That's the part that doesn't bother me. They did it to themselves.
    Actually, it was a complete liquidation. All assets are liquidated including labor and contracts, the Boeing problem was that the labor board got involved and stopped them using their current holdings. New ownership means a new start legally, it doesn't mean the unions wouldn't try to get in the middle, but they wouldn't have much standing.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I understand the situation. I just can't see the current administration allowing the demise of union jobs to be replaced with non union jobs.

    I'm sure they would try some legal manipulation, they honestly don't have a leg to stand on. Of course that hasn't stopped this administration from ****ting on everything but I don't see how they have a case under proper application of law.
