    A federal lawsuit against Boeing for alleged union-busting has become more than a conservative crusade; it’s an uncomfortable question for vulnerable Democrats in right-to-work states.

    Vulnerable Democrats face an almost impossible choice: Side with Boeing and buck not only the White House but also ditch the unions that have long contributed to Democratic campaigns.

    Moderate Democrats’ response for now: Run.

    “I really don’t want to get involved,” said Sen. Mary Landrieu. The moderate Democrat from Louisiana has raked in more than $1 million in union contributions since her first election in 1996.

    Sen. Ben Nelson, a Nebraska Democrat who faces a tough reelection bid in 2012, said he’ll start paying attention to the matter only if it comes up in a bill.

    When Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, a vulnerable Democrat up for reelection in 2012, stopped for a question from POLITICO on Tuesday, he bolted to the Senate floor when the case came up.

    “I have to speak to a senator right now, I’m sorry,” Nelson said.

    Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) said she’s still studying the issue, though she’s a strong backer of the Tar Heel State’s right-to-work laws

    If Democrats decide not to explain their stance, Republicans are happy to do it for them.

    “It’s a tough position,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a vocal critic of the suit, told POLITICO. “With 9 percent unemployment, I can’t think of a better way to kill job growth than this complaint. And a lot of Democrats believe the unions have gone way too far. This is sort of toxic for them.”

    Rep. Issa Threatens to Eliminate National Labor Relations Board Over Boeing Dispute
    In a hearing rife with partisan disagreement, Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, threatened to eliminate the National Labor Relations Board at his committee's hearing today in response to a lawsuit the board has filed against Boeing.

    "We could eliminate the NLRB or take the premise and statutorily change it," said Issa, R-Calif. "This [lawsuit] could lead to repercussions in America's competitiveness."
    Good for him.

    The company (Boeing) has added 2,000 union jobs at the Washington plant since the decision was made to move to South Carolina, where 1,000 new employees will begin working later this summer.
    So, as was pointed out previously... Boeing added 2,000 NEW jobs at the Washington plant, and that apparently isn't enough for the unions.

    Union is just a word...Boeing being unionized is the excuse. If boeings union made less per hour than they would have to pay in South Carolina Boeing would gleefully stay in the union shop....its about the pigs at the trough wanting to continue the trend of the boning the working class in america and giving to the CEOs ....they want the middleclass devestated so they can have a two caste system....The rich and their lackeys

    Re: Labor Board Tells Boeing New Factory Breaks Law

    I can't believe Boeing is that stupid. They already ran into problems when trying to subcontract out parts for the 787 rather than build them in house. Building aircraft is a very difficult job and the main benefit of the union is that they have 80+ years of institutional knowledge among the workers. Trying to set up a new factory while screwing the union is a recipe for crappy products. Once again the short-sighted idiots who think that cutting costs saves you money even when it destroys the actual value of your product seem to be in charge.

    And, people wonder why big companies move their operations overseas.
