In a stunning defeat that could accelerate the decades-long decline of the United Auto Workers, employees voted against union representation at Volkswagen's Chattanooga, Tenn., plant a factory seen as organized labor's best chance to expand in the South.
An official overseeing the vote, retired Tennessee Circuit Court Judge Sam Payne, said that a majority had voted against UAW representation by 712 to 626 53 percent to 47 percent.
"Needless to say, I am thrilled for the employees at Volkswagen and for our community and its future," Republican Sen. Bob Corker, who had been vociferous in opposition to unionization at the plant, said in a statement on his website.
