SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Gov. Nikki Haley says she will keep urging South Carolina Boeing workers to reject a union in the weeks before this month’s union vote.

Area media outlets report that Haley spoke against the Machinists union during a Wednesday appearance in Summerville. Haley has said South Carolina workers don’t need a middleman between them and their employers.

She says her message for the union is to get out, that Boeing came to South Carolina without them and does not need them now.

The National Labor Relations Board has set April 22 for the vote.

Boeing has given the board the names and addresses of 3,175 Boeing production workers in North Charleston eligible to vote.

The union says it will be talking to workers at their homes and at the union hall.
