MBUSI Mercedes-Benz Alabama

Following reaffirmation of the National Labor Relations Board ruling in its favor, the United Auto Workers will push managers at Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz facility in Tuscaloosa, Alabama to respect the ruling, allowing the union to discuss organization on the factory floor.

Reuters reports Mercedes “remains neutral” on the issue, preferring to leave the choice to organize among its 2,500 full-time and 1,000 temporary employees. The UAW, meanwhile, wants the automaker to follow its labor policy used outside of the United States, acknowledging “the human right to form trade unions” and respecting “the right of collective bargaining.”

The NLRB ruling reaffirms the original ruling made this summer, ordering Mercedes to rescind a rule in its employee handbook that barred employees from talking about unionization on the floor while not on the clock.
