UAW: Workers At VW's Tennessee Plant Voting February 12-14

CREATED Feb 3, 2014

DETROIT (AP) - The United Auto Workers said employees at Volkswagen's workers Chattanooga plant will vote February 12-14 on whether they want the union to represent them.

The Detroit-based UAW said Monday that the National Labor Relations Board set the election.

The vote follows an agreement between the UAW and the Germany-based automaker, which decided not to challenge a unionization vote.

UAW President Bob King said a statement that Volkswagen "is known globally for its system of cooperation with unions and works councils." The UAW said the Chattanooga plant is VW's only major U.S. facility without a union.

Last month, the National Labor Relations Board determined that the UAW and Volkswagen didn't violate federal labor laws last year during the process of moving toward a union representation vote.
