The National Labor Relations Board ignored a congressional subpoena on Friday that requested information about its lawsuit against Boeing for building a manufacturing plant in a non-union state.
Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican, has subpoenaed the National Labor Relations Board as part of his investigation of the regulatory agency's lawsuit against Boeing's new airplane-manufacturing plant in South Carolina, where it has created thousands of jobs.
The committee wants to know the reasons behind the NLRB's complaint against Boeing, said Jeff Solsby, Mr. Issa's spokesman.
"It's really important to shed some light on the decision-making process and make it more open and transparent," Mr. Solsby said. "This is a regulatory agency that has been less than transparent about its decisions. It owes Congress and the public a thorough and complete accounting."
