Tennessee Volkswagen Workers Reject UAW Representation

Saturday, 15 Feb 2014 08:24 AM

By Todd Beamon and Cathy Burke

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.

Frank Fischer, the CEO of Volkswagen Chattanooga said, "They have spoken, and Volkswagen will respect the decision of the majority.

Yes, we saw it.

Turns out some republican fear was pushed pretty heavy here. And weak minded republican voting base got scared. Cowards!

When the company doesn't fight it, and elected republicans jump in and make threats.... We know who's scared, don't we?

One other fun fact about unions.... Unions are voted in. Majority wins. Simple.

Unions can also be voted out. Again, majority wins.

The reason elected republicans jumped in with threats about not letting VW expand if a union was voted in (mighty friendly to business huh?) they knew that once a union gets in, the employees know that everything they've been told is a lie. And they would never vote the union out.

I know none of you understand what research is, but try to expand your brain and see how many union shops voted to UNunionize. If they're so bad, why haven't hardly any ever done that?

Again..... It's the common sense things that make you republicans look so stupid in these conversations. You just gulp that koolaid that's flavored either Stupid or Gullible, and suck it down like there's no tomorrow. All the while, big business gets richer, and you get poorer.

Amazingly ignorant.

I'll ask my son, he works for a union (place). Not saying where.

But I think the men who work at this plant are well aware of what the deal is. To say they are not informed is ridiculous. When my son's (place) went union, there were plenty of meetings with workers. All were well informed.

No threats, just information.

Sorry you don't get it. Social Security is a PAYROLL TAX the funds collected go into the General Fund and is spent on EVERYTHING the Government buys. It is a welfare program run like a ponzi scheme. There is not account out there with your name on it with retirement funds set aside for you and your family.
We are being skrewed royally by this program. Quit drinking the Koolaid and educate yourself about what is going on with the finances in our country.
you seem to think you're educated about it, so how are you going to fix it? Posting on Topix?

He dislikes the union, yet still works there? That's very interesting.

He should show his support of big business and quit! That'll show Em!

And if they are well informed and there's still a union there, they like it.

Just a fact!

You need to go back and read what I said. Where did I say he dislikes the union? I don't recall saying either way. I said the (place) went union during his years there. I recall him talking about it, saying they were having plenty of meetings, discussions and so on. There were no threats and I'd say when the majority voted to go union, all were well informed.

You post so much BULL$#IT it's often difficult to find time to dispute all of it.
ANY organizing campaign by any union is protected by the NLRB.
Even though NLRB attorneys are unionized they are very impartial and consummate professionals. If there are any threats form either side or an outsider, there are very serious legal consequences. Those employees are presented with many meetings and many are even at the expense of the company, on company property.
NO ONE is allowed to promise a raise for either outcome, many see that as "no guarantee" and a company CAN SAY that union dues will DECREASE your take home pay.
I voted for the UAW at my plant, others (including working supervisors), voted it down!
When you lump all Conservatives together, you look foolish.

When you have a genuine concern or question ask an authority you can trust.

My poster (I made and displayed on the back of my 6ft tall tool box), said "Knowledge is Power, EMPOWER yourself!" When I clocked out company flunkies would simply place something in front of my poster, or turn it around. I made a complaint with the NLRB.
I met with the NLRB attorney at a restaurant near my employer at noon on a workday (so I would also have protection from the company if they tried to fire me for filing charges.

Any union is only as good as the employees that make it .
If they don't keep up with meetings and stay informed, they risk loosing their true voice of representation. Garbage in, garbage out...and your dues will be paid either way (unless it's an "open shop").

One other thing..... If the company has rules about no personal signs on the floor, the NLRB is powerless to do anything about it.

Work distraction/safety issues and all.

But go ahead and tell us all how you being you, won that as well! We all know that's what happened lmao

btw.... Shop Stewart would have been the first required step. The NLRB would have told you that. You have to give the company the opportunity to address it before the NLRB would even meet you.

Just pointing out the obvious holes in your endless bullshit.

Carry on.:-D

It's just some words on a screen, many don't care enough (about these issues) to put up with your mindless dribble. I enjoy forging words into hammers, and then beating you up side your empty head(s).

I think you try to bully others here with your profane language and personal attacks, I can't stand bullies. The preponderance of ignorance contained in your posts speaks volumes about your lack of character, and failure to form a real intelligent argument.

That's ok, you can has DUNCE HAT though...you earned it!

Well, here's this......

Apparently you have never traveled and toured the western states. There are plenty of giant rocks with a cavern between them. And no, a cavern is not necessarily underground.

The Grand Canyon is advertised as only one of them.

You know not for that which you speak! Duh!
