Gov. Huntsman Responds To NLRB Boeing Decision

Manchester, NH – Governor Jon Huntsman issued the following statement on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) dropping its lawsuit against Boeing:

“The NLRB decision is a victory in a battle that should have never been fought. Their action against Boeing in South Carolina was an unprecedented attempt to interfere in the free market, and an attempt to politicize companies’ decisions as how and where they create jobs. We never should have reached this point; President Obama should have ordered the NLRB to stand down months ago. But instead, his lack of leadership allowed a rogue agency to threaten thousands of South Carolina jobs. I give great credit to South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson for fighting against the NLRB’s meritless action.”
