Volkswagen USA Workers Vote Against UAW Representation

By a vote of 883 to 776, workers at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga factory voted against representation by the United Auto Workers.


I have mixed feelings on this. I am happy that the workers have had multiple chances to determine their relationship with Volkswagen, and will resent all the “actually, they voted wrong” takes.

More personally, I know my own profession (aviation safety) would be far more difficult without single entities, like unions, acting on behalf and for employee groups. I suspect manufacturing has a similar dynamic.
