I just wanted to take a moment and personally thank you for lending us your expertise and hard work in helping [Company Name Withheld] remain Union-Free. You were instrumental in helping me stop the Teamsters, who had been previously batting 1000 against [Company Name]; winning several elections against this past year. With a resounding 50% margin of victory, I believe we sent them a clear message that we intend to remain union-free.

Volkswagen has officially been ordered by the National Labor Relations Board to begin bargaining with the Auto Workers at their Chattanooga plan. Volkswagen has stood firm in its stance to only bargain with UAW if and when they represent all 1,400 production workers at the factory in Chattanooga. When the UAW failed to organize all workers, and instead carved out a micro-unit, the NLRB consented.

VW has filed a federal appeal.

When negotiations wrapped up for the Detroit 3 last December, the UAW claimed the final decisions as a big win for their membership. Not only did they get all Big Three auto manufactures to grant an increase in wages, they also got them to commit to investing billions in U.S. plants over the years.

Like we stated at the time, the union’s short-sightedness would likely do damage in the long run. Ford has announced that it will be moving all of its U.S. small car production to Mexico. You can thank the UAW for that.
