BOEING SEEKS TO KEEP DOCUMENTS SECRET IN NLRB CASE

Boeing is seeking confidentiality protections for materials that may be submitted in the National Labor Relations Board case related to Boeing’s new aircraft production facility in North Charleston.

“A protective order is unquestionably necessary to prevent harm to Boeing from the disclosure of subpoenaed materials containing trade secrets, as well as non-public proprietary business, commercial and financial information about Boeing in general and Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner in particular,” Boeing said in its filing.

Boeing proposes that the company should be able to designate material as confidential, subject to potential challenges from the NLRB or the machinists union.

The NLRB proposes instead that Boeing be required to produce evidence of the need for a protective order for particular material, subject to an administrative law judge ruling. The union says Boeing’s proposed order is overly broad and would prevent the union, the public and the press “from hearing the most critical evidence in the case.”
