Tennessee VW Workers Overwhelmingly Vote to Join UAW
Updated On: Apr 23, 2024
Apr. 22, 2024 | ORGANIZING | Employees at a Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee, overwhelmingly voted to join the United Auto Workers union Friday in a historic first test of the UAW’s renewed effort to organize nonunion factories. The union wound up getting 2,628 votes, or 73% of the ballots cast, compared with only 985 who voted no in an election run by the National Labor Relations Board. Both sides have five business days to file objections to the election, the NLRB said. If there are none, the election will be certified and VW and the union must “begin bargaining in good faith.” Twice in recent years, workers at the Chattanooga plant have rejected union membership in plantwide votes. Next up for a union vote are workers at Mercedes factories near Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who will vote on UAW representation in May. Associated Press  AP PHOTO/GEORGE WALKER IV
