The National Labor Relations Board launched a legal war against the Boeing Corporation, after the company built an expansion plant in South Carolina for its new Dreamliner airplane. The NRLB said the company went to a right-to-work state to punish unionized workers in Washington state, where the first Dreamliner plane is located.

Peter Shaumber, the former chairman of the National Labor Relations Board under President George W. Bush, joined the Federal Drive to discuss the case and whether he believes there's precedent behind NRLB's decision-making.
