South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and other Republican governors are calling on the National Labor Relations Board to dismiss its complaint against Boeing as a congressional hearing over the matter gets under way.

Haley and 15 other GOP governors wrote to NLRB general counsel Lafe Solomon on Thursday saying the probe hamstrings governors who are trying to create jobs.

The letter was released Friday as the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform began meeting in North Charleston.

Haley and Solomon are scheduled to testify during the hearing expected to last most of the day.

The NLRB alleges Boeing built an assembly line for its new 787 aircraft in South Carolina to avoid unionized workers in Washington state.

Boeing has challenged the complaint, saying no union workers lost jobs.
