UAW: Workers at VW's Tenn. plant voting Feb. 12-14

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - The United Auto Workers says employees at Volkswagen's workers Chattanooga, Tenn., plant will vote Feb. 12-14 on whether they want the union to represent them.

The Detroit-based UAW said Monday that the National Labor Relations Board set the election.

The vote follows an agreement between the UAW and the Germany-based automaker, which decided not to challenge a unionization vote.

UAW President Bob King says a statement that Volkswagen "is known globally for its system of cooperation with unions and works councils." The UAW says the Chattanooga plant is VW's only major U.S. facility without a union.

Last month, the National Labor Relations Board determined that the UAW and Volkswagen didn't violate federal labor laws last year during the process of moving toward a union representation vote.
