An agreement between the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) and the Boeing Company was approved Tuesday by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), setting union representation elections for April 22 at five locations on Boeing’s North Charleston, South Carolina, campus.

The agreement sets parameters for the date, time, duration and eligible voters for the election at Boeing’s 787 production facility. There are more than 3,000 workers at the plant.

“This is an important step on the road to a collective bargaining agreement for workers at Boeing South Carolina,” IAM lead organizer Mike Evans said. “This is a chance for Boeing workers and their families to substantially improve their careers and communities. The law provides for a free and fair election without intimidation or harassment, and we intend to ensure it is conducted accordingly.”
