    Related ImageExpand / ContractSouth Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says her state doesn't need unions. ( AP Photo/Rainier Ehrhardt)( The Associated Press) Right-to-work laws mean workers at unionized plants do not have to join the labor organization. Haley, whose efforts have brought major investments from companies including Continental Tire and Boeing, recently went toe-to toe with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, which sought to organize 3,000 workers at an aircraft plant she helped lure in 2011 with a $ 450 million package of tax incentives. The union suspended its effort to organize the Boeing plant after a rocky start. Haley, who said at her January state of the union address that South Carolina has an international reputation for being a state that does n’t want unions, because we don’t need unions, we have been successful in attracting some of the world’s top corporate citizens and paving the way for expansion of the businesses we already have because our right-to-work law strengthens the direct relationship our employers have with employees, Haley said. Our best advice to The UAW is to ask the IAM about how South Carolina workers view unions.
