Pelosi Says NRLB Should Shut Down Boeing South Carolina Plant

Do Arkansas Democrats Running for Congress Agree?

Little Rock, Ark. – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said Friday the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) should shut down aircraft manufacturer Boeing’s new South Carolina plant because they chose to expand in a right-to-work state.

“Do Rep. Clark Hall, Sen. Gene Jeffress and candidate Ken Aden (AR-03) agree with Minority Leader Pelosi?” asked Republican Party of Arkansas Communications Director Katherine Vasilos. “Arkansas’ Democratic Congressional Candidates need to get on board to fight the NLRB’s attempt to obstruct job creation and punish right-to-work states like Arkansas. Since our state bid on the Boeing plant, this could have very easily been Arkansas workers threatened by the NLRB’s overreach.”

In August, the entire Arkansas Congressional Delegation voted to prevent the NLRB from hurting right-to-work states by approving the American Jobs from Government Interference Act.

“Will Arkansas Democrats running for Congress stand with the likes of Nancy Pelosi and union bosses or will they join the rest of us in fighting for the rights of Arkansas’ workers?” asked Vasilos. “Today, we are calling on Rep. Clark Hall, Sen. Gene Jeffress and candidate Ken Aden to take a stand to protect private-sector job creation.”
