COLUMBIA, S.C. —

Gov. Nikki Haley says federal legislation is being introduced to protect right-to-work laws in South Carolina and other states as the National Labor Relations Board complains that the Boeing Co. illegally retaliated against union workers.

Haley met Tuesday with U.S. senators and business leaders at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington as they reacted to NLRB claims against Boeing.

A complaint filed last month claims Boeing decided to build a new aircraft assembly line in South Carolina to retaliate for a 2008 strike at a Washington state plant. The NLRB wants the 787 assembly work returned to Washington.

Haley said President Barack Obama owes it to South Carolina and the nation to talk about how he will handle the NLRB challenge to Boeing.
