Acting NLRB General Counsel Lafe Solomon took the highly unusual step on May 9, 2011, of issuing a formal press release asserting that the Boeing Complaint was nothing unusual, and requesting interested parties to let the NLRB’s processes run their course and not to attempt to try the case in the media.  As noted in the original post, the filing of the Complaint was accompanied by a news release from Mr. Solomon, which generated mulitple responses from Boeing and from both business and labor interests.
