UAW Campaigning Again to Unionize Tenn. VW Plant Staff
Posted: Jul 14, 2014 9:07 AM
The UAW began campaigning to unionize a Chattanooga Volkswagen plant just five months after suffering a devastating defeat, according to a union critic who works at the plant. Mike Burton, 57, said that UAW union organizers and employees supportive of their efforts have already begun distributing materials in workspaces and approaching employees about joining the union. UAW announced the formation of a local voluntary union on Thursday, despite the fact that it agreed not to engage in any organization activity for at least one year after its defeat.
