New labor policy will help both supporters and opponents of UAW at VW

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - Both supporters and opponents of the United Auto Workers' effort to unionize Chattanooga's Volkswagen plant say a new labor policy is going to help them.  

The policy, known as "Community Organization Engagement," establishes formal rules for labor groups at the plant for the first time.

UAW supporters say the policy may open the door to the union eventually representing all workers in contract negotiations.  

Others say it may undercut the union by giving an opposing group an official voice at the plant.  

The outcome is being closely watched in the U.S. and abroad.
