VW considering tossing election results and accepting UAW union, group says

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

An anti-union group said today that Volkswagen is considering disregarding the February election results over United Auto Workers representation at the Chattanooga plant and accepting authorization cards the union claims to have collected last year.

Matt Patterson of the Center for Worker Freedom said that such a course of action "would hand over its Chattanooga assembly plant to the UAW in spite of that union's failure to win a February secret ballot election."

VW workers rejected the union in a 712 to 626 vote after a three-day election overseen by the National Labor Relations Board.

Patterson, citing unidentified sources, said VW is considering recognizing the cards even though they've never been examined by a third party and a number of VW workers have complained to labor authorities that they had been tricked or coerced into signing such cards.
