Union supporters and critics are stepping up activity ahead of this
week's vote on organizing the Chattanooga Volkswagen plant in a city
that's now ground zero in the fight over the future of the United Auto
Workers in the South.
Two top officials in VW's works council network said Saturday in
Chattanooga that they want to see a labor board crafted at the plant
that doesn't follow the German model but rather is a fit for the U.S.
Meanwhile, a former president of manufacturing at the plant said he
thought the UAW would hurt efforts to bring a new sport utility vehicle
assembly line to Chattanooga.
