Tennessee Volkswagen Workers Reject UAW Won-t Become Next Detroit — Volkswagen Worker

Workers Choose Not to Turn Chattanooga Into Detroit ULI DECK/DPA Three weeks ago I traveled to Chattanooga, Tenn. on behalf of the Beacon Institute to educate workers and community leaders on the perils of unionizing the 3,000-worker Volkswagen plant. My message: beware turning Chattanooga, a surprisingly fast-growing metro area in the South, into Detroit. So when the plant workers rejected the UAW effort to bring in a union, it was gratifying that they fully understood the perils: the UAW would put their jobs at risk. When I traveled to Chattanooga and met with families who would be affected by the union presence, I heard multiple concerns. One was that unions would withhold money from ...

VW and the UAW vs Workers Democracy and Free Speech [Mackinac Center] — Volkswagen Worker

VW and the UAW vs. Workers, Democracy and Free Speech Apparently, “democracy” isn’t a satisfying answer to the United Auto Workers. A week after Volkswagen autoworkers in Chattanooga, Tenn. declined to join the Detroit union by a vote of 712 to 626, the union appealed the election to the National Labor Relations Board. The UAW claimed that “interference by politicians and outside special interest groups” skewed the vote. The main problem for the union, aside from the outcome, was that opponents exercised their First Amendment rights and stood up for workers without a voice. Specifically, Sen. Bob Corker, R-TN, as well as several other elected officials, spoke ...

Senator tricks VW workers into voting against union screws the South out… — Volkswagen Worker

Senator tricks VW workers into voting against union, screws the South out of potential jobs Well, this is some shit. Employees at a Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, which builds the Passat Sedan, voted against joining the United Auto Workers union this past Friday, making the plant the only VW plant in the entire world without worker representation. It was a pretty unusual move, and rather like saying “Oh, no thanks! We’d rather not have higher wages, better hours, or better benefits! You take that money and you give it to those who need it– our bosses !” So why did they do it? Well, it might be because a certain Senator flat out lied to them in order to get them not to join the union. ...

Fox Enters Tennessee Labor Fight With Anti-Worker Binge Fox News pushed aside economic reality and Volkswagen’s stated position surrounding unionization effort at a Tennessee plant, instead warning that a unionization push may generate too many benefits for workers and hurt the carmaker. Workers at a Volkswagen AG plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee are voting this week on whether to unionize with the United Auto Workers (UAW). A final vote on the move is scheduled to take place by February 14, and in advance of the decision, outside conservative activist groups have mobilized a campaign to halt the unionization effort, succeeding in skewing local coverage of the issue.

Workers at Volkswagen Tenn. plant taking union recognition vote February 12 2014 CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (PAI) — Amid a heavy anti-union campaign by outside radical right groups and Tennessee Republican politicians — but not the company — some 1,500 workers at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga, Tenn. plant are voting from Feb. 12-14 on whether to unionize with the United Auto Workers. If the union wins, the victory would make VW the UAW’s second plant in the Volunteer State, but its first successful organizing drive in years in the anti-union South. It also would be the UAW’s first win at a transplant foreign automaker in that region, union Secretary-Treasurer Dennis ...

United Auto Workers suddenly withdraws legal challenge to Tenn. Volkswagen plant vote By Amanda Becker and Bernie Woodall CHATTANOOGA, Tenn./DETROIT (Reuters) – The United Auto Workers, surprising even its supporters, on Monday abruptly withdrew its legal challenge to a union organizing vote that it lost at a Volkswagen AG plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee in February. Just an hour before the start of a National Labor Relations Board hearing on the challenge, the union dropped its case, casting a cloud over its long and still unsuccessful push to organize foreign-owned auto plants in the U.S. South. VW workers due to testify at the hearing were already at the courthouse in downtown Chattanooga ...
