Not sure what the details were of the settlement but some concessions to the NLRB were made regarding 737Max production during the lawsuit. It'll be interesting to see if several of those folks turn their head again and where it ends up. NLRB should probably focus elsewhere and start being supportive of the work that is being done. After all, the plant didn't have to land in the U.S. at all. Last time I checked, their jurisdiction was about 0 outside our borders.

It will be interesting to see if the NLRB and their union friends begin to object that this work is being taken from them in the Peoples Republic of Washington State. The NLRB has now lost in two different judicial circuits as to whether they have any jurisdiction with less than a quorum after the two "recess appointments", but the unions were under the impression that all the 737 work would be in the Northeast.

Finding a location in North Charleston should be relatively easy and Boeing won't have a legion of regulators looking at every construction move.

"737 work would be in the Northeast" you are at the wrong end of the map.

Under the impression is not legally binding, and I would be surprised if the union pandering NLRB didn't take a run at any non union facility start up, in any predominantly non union state. As if we need another scandal to highlight the malfeasance of the current "transparent" administration.

They only said the final assembly was going to be done in WA, not the parts and sub-assemblies.
