The future of a new assembly plant in South Carolina is also in doubt. Boeing's machinist union accuses the manufacturer of putting the plant there rather than in Washington state to take advantage of South Carolina's weaker labor laws.

The National Labor Relations Board has threatened to shut down the plant.


That's an interesting legal battle in the making.
