QOTD: UAW Vote At Chattanooga Ends Tonight, What's Your Prediction?
The historic vote scheduled to take place at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga assembly plant. 1,570 workers will vote on whether to be represented by the United Auto Workers so that a German-style Works Council can be formed.
If the UAW is successful, it would be their first victory in a long history of failing to secure organization at foreign-owned auto plants. If they fail, it will be a serious blow to the UAW and the American labor movement. For the definitive report on final day of the vote, The Detroit News has a great take.
Personally, I think that the final vote will result in the workers rejecting the union. But I am curious to hear your take.
