The House Republicans wants to know whether the NLRB tried to help a union during contract negotiations with Boeing.
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is expanding his investigation of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
In a letter sent Wednesday to Lafe Solomon, the NLRB’s acting general counsel, Issa said he still expects the labor board to comply with his request for documents regarding his investigation of the NLRB’s complaint against Boeing, which was withdrawn last week.
In addition, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman said he is expanding his probe to cover the labor board’s involvement in negotiations between Boeing and the International Association of Machinists (IAM), which led to a four-year contract extension. The NLRB dropped its complaint after the contract was announced.
