NLRB lawyer's complaint
Whose fault is it?
I do not understand why The Seattle Times would print that article about the NLRB lawyer’s whiny complaint because he lost the Boeing case, nor why you thought it rated space at all, especially on the front page [“Boeing complaint still stings top lawyer for NLRB,” page one, Feb. 20].
First, the case is old news and the workers are not complaining about the settlement, so why the follow-up now?
Second, the article does not mention that many different cases about this issue of moving production facilities have come before the NLRB and the courts before, and the decisions were for the companies.
It seems that a business does have the right to place its facilities where it chooses unless safety or environmental issues are involved.
If NLRB’s acting general counsel Lafe Solomon’s career has really been harmed because of prosecuting this case, it would appear his own judgment is the cause.
