SC Boeing exec sends workers anti-union email

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The general manager of Boeing's new South Carolina plant has sent workers an email saying the company wants to keep the plant union free.

 Boeing South Carolina General Manager Jack Jones says he doesn't think it is in the best interest of the company, workers or the community to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

The email was titled "The IAM is back, and they want your money."

Union representative Tommy Mayfield says the union has never left. He says they are working to collect enough support to have an election, but he won't say how many people have signed up.

Boeing came to South Carolina in part to get away from unions in Washington.
