Volkswagen Workers in Tennessee to Vote on Forming First Works Council in U.S.

February 3, 2014

On Feb. 12–14, workers at the Chattanooga, Tenn., Volkswagen factory will vote to unionize. If successful, they plan to organize under the works council model that is common at the company's factories outside the United States. Currently, the Tennessee location is the only major Volkswagen production facility in the world that does not have labor representation. Works councils enable workers to collaborate with management in improving the workplace and increasing company success.
