President Obama weighed in on the National Labor Relations Board's decision to drop its complaint against airline manufacturer Boeing.
"I'm glad people are gonna be working," Obama said Friday while walking across the street to the White House from Blair House, the official state guest house of the president.
The NLRB filed a complaint that Boeing relocated jobs from Washington state to South Carolina in retaliation for past union strikes in Washington.
Boeing decided to build the plant for its 787 Dreamliner jets in South Carolina, a right-to-work state.
The case garnered strong criticism from conservatives who said that the NLRB was trying to decide where Boeing could do business.
On Friday, the NLRB announced a deal had been reached between Boeing and the International Association of Machinists on building a different airplane in Washington state.
White House press secretary Jay Carney stressed that Obama was happy with the NLRB news but had no involvement in the matter.
"Obama is glad they have reached a resolution, but the president was not involved," Carney said Friday.
