NLRB Approves Election for
Machinists at Boeing

See Mike Evans "Grand Lodge Rep." on TV near the South Carolina Boeing Plant

North Charleston, SC, March 24, 2015 - The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) today approved an agreement between the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) and the Boeing Company that establishes the date, time, duration and eligible voters for a union representation election among more than 3,000 workers at Boeing’s 787 production facility in North Charleston, SC.

According to the agreement, which was facilitated by the NLRB and is known as a stipulated election agreement, the one-day election is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at five separate locations on Boeing’s North Charleston campus.

“This is an important step on the road to a collective bargaining agreement for workers at Boeing South Carolina,” said IAM lead organizer Mike Evans. “This is a chance for Boeing workers and their families to substantially improve their careers and communities. The law provides for a free and fair election without intimidation or harassment and we intend to ensure it is conducted accordingly.”

The IAM is the U.S.’s largest aerospace union, representing approximately 90,000 workers at Lockheed Martin, General Electric, United Technologies and others. The IAM also represents more than 35,000 Boeing employees at 24 locations nationwide.
