UAW: Workers at VW’s Tenn. plant voting Feb. 12-14
DETROIT (AP) – The United Auto Workers says employees at Volkswagen’s workers Chattanooga, Tenn., plant will vote Feb. 12-14 on whether they want the union to represent them.
The Detroit-based UAW said Monday that the National Labor Relations Board set the election.
The vote follows an agreement between the UAW and the Germany-based automaker, which decided not to challenge a unionization vote.
UAW President Bob King says a statement that Volkswagen “is known globally for its system of cooperation with unions and works councils.” The UAW says the Chattanooga plant is VW’s only major U.S. facility without a union.
Last month, the National Labor Relations Board determined that the UAW and Volkswagen didn’t violate federal labor laws last year during the process of moving toward a union representation vote.
