We have previously reported that Volkswagen-Chattanooga adopted a new "Community Organization Engagement Policy" that provided different levels of management access to employee representatives, depending on the representatives' level of support from the workforce. Earlier this month, an independent auditor reportedly certified that UAW Local 42 had more than the 45 percent support necessary for the highest level of access. Among other things, the UAW will be entitled to bi-weekly meetings with VW management. According to news reports from the Detroit Free Press, the union plans to talk "wages" and will push for recognition as the exclusive bargaining representative of the Chattanooga employees. The union reportedly claims to have more than 50 percent support, which could allow VW to voluntarily recognize it as the exclusive representative under the NLRA. No doubt the UAW hopes to be practicing saying "Fahrvergnugen, y'all" soon, if it is not doing so already.
