Right to work group reacts to union discussions

CHATTANOOGA, TN (AP) - The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation is reaching out to Volkswagen workers in Chattanooga after a union began talking with plant officials about a works council labor board.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/12ptTd5 ) reported the right to work group is offering free legal advice to VW employees who feel pressured by the United Auto Workers union.

Foundation President Mark Mix said the group is concerned about the proposal in Chattanooga.

VW said last month it is talking with the UAW about the works council idea. Works councils would represent employees in discussions with the company about such issues as pay and employee working conditions.

Company spokesman Guenther Scherelis said the Chattanooga plant is the only major Volkswagen facility that does not have a works council.
