Apparently there is no one here who works for VW in Tenn; many seem to be assuming the employees want a Union and are being deterred.
News of this has been sparse for the last year.. from all involved. After watching this for awhile it is my impression that a deal was struck between VW, German Unions, and the UAW to install a union at the Tenn, plant.... The rub is that the employees do not or may not want any Union involvement and are happy with the existing situation.. I believe the employs voted against the Union prior to now... ( hmmm, need to re-verify that somehow ). Coercion may be taking place by the Union and VW (to placate German Unions).
As hard as it might be to conceive... The state politburo might be trying to represent the constituency ??
Again, info on this has been filtered through VW and is infrequent at best.
Another political diversion from the bigger problems at hand.
