Yesterday, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported that VW wanted to set up a "a European-style works council to represent employees." To comply with U.S. labor laws, VW reached out to the UAW to involve them in organizing the council. Repeat, VW reached out to the UAW and invited them in for talks.
Today, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that Gov. Haslam says VW doesn't need a union and workers there are happy with the situation the way it is. He also said "Volkswagen continues to be incredibly successful with the current structure."
I imagine executives at the VW world headquarters in Wolfsburg Germany were surprised to learn that Haslam has taken over executive management of their Chattanooga facility.
