Not only was the union vote defeated; it went down in flames big time! James E. Sanderson, Jr. and the boy wonder spent a lot of time working to get a yes vote at Boeing and they got sent packing back to Georgetown. The answer was we don't want your union corruption here in South Carolina. Go back north Sandersons.

NLRB tally shows 74% voted against worker organizing effort
IAM says it’s assessing next steps at 787 Dreamliner plant
Boeing Co. employees in South Carolina voted overwhelmingly against unionization, dealing a blow to the embattled labor movement’s efforts to expand its ranks under President Donald Trump.

The vote is a loss for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers but not a surprise in a right-to-work state traditionally hostile to collective bargaining. It comes two days ahead of the factory rollout of the largest 787 Dreamliner, Boeing’s marquee carbon-fiber jet, an event the president is expected to attend.

The labor defeat is the latest in a long-running struggle between Boeing’s management and the Machinists’ union, with the South Carolina plant a crucial battleground. An earlier attempt to organize workers in the state fizzled before a vote in 2015 amid anti-union campaigning and political pressure led by then-Governor Nikki Haley, who is now Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations.

James is from the Charleston area, isn't he?
