Three Boeing workers have filed labor charges against the United Aerospace Workers after alleging they were punished by the union for crossing the picket line during a month-long strike at the C-17 plant.
The trio, who work at Boeing's supply warehouse in Carson, filed charges with the National Labor Relations Board alleging the union forced them to pay fines for working during the walkout, which ended June 9.
The workers, whose names were not released, reportedly resigned their union membership before returning to work, as required under the union’s internal rules.
A legal group working with the trio claim union “bosses” are now attempting to collect dues from non-members incurred during the strike.
“In these tough economic times, it’s unconscionable for UAW union bosses to retaliate against nonmember workers for providing for their families,” said Patrick Semmens, a spokesman for the National Right to Work Foundation.
