VW official: Chattanooga works council should come by ‘formal vote'

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

Volkswagen Group of America's chief said today that the company is looking for "an innovative solution" that permits Chattanooga plant employees to have a strong voice in the automaker's global works council structure through "a formal vote."

"That process has to run its course," said Jonathan Browning during a conference call on August sales results with reporters and analysts.

Browning said the decision is up to employees "though a formal vote. Those realities haven't changed."

The CEO was responding to a question about talks between top VW and United Auto Workers officials last week in Wolfsburg, Germany, about the potential of such a labor board at the Chattanooga plant.
