The article reports on the pro-union lawsuit filed by the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) against Boeing Co. and proposal of a major rule change accomplishing some rulings of the Employee Free Choice Act. On one hand, the House Republicans are also planning to change the NLRB statute preventing unions from contesting a company's moving of production facilities from one state to the other. However, Boeing Co.'s challenge is to overcome the alleged illegal retaliation against unions.
