Statement on behalf of Chattanooga Volkswagen workers
Volkswagen Workers: We’ve Waited Long Enough! Let us Vote!
In an unprecedented move caused by Volkswagen’s legal games, the NLRB this morning issued a split decision and dismissed Chattanooga workers petition for a vote, but allowed it to be refiled.
This decision allows Chattanooga workers to quickly file another petition but creates yet another delay in the process. Volkswagen has continued to use legal games to aggressively deny its workers the right to vote for years. It’s ridiculous and shows how broken the rights of workers are under our labor laws. But we will be on the NLRB’s doorstep immediately to file again and demand a speedy election.
VW should be ashamed of this legal obstruction that led to this. It’s sad how Volkswagens’ strategy of using high-priced legal games can stand in the way the right to vote for Chattanooga workers. Chattanooga workers deserve to know from VW, how much money have you spent on these lawyers to try to stop us from having a voice?
