US Organized Labor Humiliated After Volkswagen-s Tennessee Workers… — Volkswagen Worker

US Organized Labor Humiliated After Volkswagen#039;s Tennessee Workers Vote Against Unionizing While US organized labor has been in a state of steady decline for several generations, never had it suffered as crushing a blow as it did last night, when in a 712 to 626 vote, Volkswagen’s hourly workers in Chattanooga, TN, rejected joining the United Auto Workers labor union. What makes the defeat even more bitter is that a win would have marked the first time the union has been able to organize a foreign-owned auto plant in a Southern U.S. state, and would have been particularly meaningful, because the vote was set in a right-to-work state in the South, where anti-union sentiment is strong ...

But it wasn’t a letdown for social media . Social networks — mainly Twitter but also Facebook and Google + — offered up a Super Bowl party within the party. As fans snacked on dip and hot wings in their friends’ living rooms, they tweeted and posted comments about their parties ...

Rhodium Group   Volkswagen Gets a Lesson About American Exceptionalism — Volkswagen Worker

Rhodium Group NOTE Volkswagen Gets a Lesson About American Exceptionalism As analyzed by Seymour Martin Lipset and other scholars, the United States has the unusual distinction of being the most advanced industrial society in the world while never having had a forceful socialist party. Its labor movement is also weaker than that in other industrialized nations. When workers at Volkswagen’s plant in Tennessee rejected a move to join the United Auto Workers (UAW), they illustrated this exceptionalist American sentiment. The vote defeated the UAW’s first attempt to unionize a foreign car plant located outside Detroit in traditionally antiunion “right-to-work” states in the Midwest and ...

If it’s illegal when a company coerces employees, what about a union? With its future hinging on unionizing the American factories of foreign automakers, the United Auto Workers has been desperately courting Volkwagen’s 2700 employees in Tennessee since 2011. According to news reports on Wednesday, a majority of Volkswagen AG’s employees in Chattanooga have signed union authorization cards indicating the desire “to join VW’s Global Works Council and supporting cooperative and collaborative relations with the company.” The UAW is claiming that the cards are as valid as the workers having voted in an election. The question that is not being posed, however, is: Were the majority ...

Volkswagen workers reject United Auto Workers By KEVIN ROBILLARD | 2/14/14 10:15 PM EST Updated: 2/18/14 11:52 AM EST Volkswagen workers in Chattanooga, Tenn. have rejected the United Auto Workers, shooting down the union’s hopes of securing a foothold at a foreign-owned auto plant in the South. The vote, announced late Friday night after three days of balloting, is a devastating loss for the UAW, whose membership has plummeted from a high of 1.5 million in 1979 to around 400,000 today. Outgoing UAW President Bob King had staked his legacy on organizing a Southern auto plant for the first time. But the decision is a triumph for Tennessee Republicans like Sen. Bob Corker, who lured ...

How VW Workers Could Still Get A Voice After A Vote To Unionize Failed Share: CREDIT: AP On late Friday night, election results showed that the majority of workers at a Volkswagen (VW) plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee voted against joining the United Automobile Workers (UAW) union. The election was close, with 626 workers in favor and 712 opposed . But that doesn’t mean workers have lost the chance to organize and be heard at their workplace. While unions, which negotiate pay and benefits with employers, are familiar in the United States, the country has yet to see European-style “works councils,” but VW wants to bring one to Tennessee. These organizations are a formal structure in ...
