The dust is still settling from the UAW’s last-minute withdrawal of its objections to the NLRB election at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga, Tennessee, plant. The UAW and Volkswagen now have to defend against a lawsuit filed by the National Right to Work Legal Foundation on behalf of several VW Chattanooga employees. The suit, brought under Section 302 of the Labor Management Relations Act, alleges that the company gave unlawful assistance that was of value to the UAW in the failed organizing effort. Meanwhile, the UAW has its eyes on a Mercedes-Benz workforce in Vance, Alabama, where – despite a neutrality agreement – the union fi led unfair labor practice charges with the NLRB in an effort to get more in-plant access to employees. The UAW may be better advised to spend its time trying to figure out why it can’t attract the employees of neutral or even sympathetic employers.
