If VW thinks they can tame the UAW, that's their failure to own.

    VW opened up to the UAW in TN to keep peace with IG Metall in Germany. Word now is that IGM is very angry/disappointed with UAW, and will likely seek another union partner in the US to try again. Alternatively, IGM may try itself to organize VW in the US.

    No, you are confused. Tennessee actually is a "right to work" state. Look it up.

    If I had my druthers, like FDR I'd abolish and ban all public sector unions.
    Public unions are under attack too. The last bastion. As earlier stated, the elimination of labor unions by people who have a vested interest against labor rights. These are the same politicians and powerful influences that support race to the bottom policies. That's not smart for citizens of a country in any shape or form. Absolute power corrupts.

    I would think anyone promoting the auto worker's union wouldn't mention DETROIT.

    Explain why VW didn't want to open up in DETROIT? There certainly is plenty of factory space and unemployed people needing jobs.

    Explain why basically NO AUTO COMPANY does ANYTHING in DETROIT anymore if it is so successful for a company to have the UAW.

    To understand the long term effects of the UAW all a person has to do it visit DETROIT.

    OK, now it's your turn to blame everyone but the union for the collapse of the auto industry in DETROIT.

    UAW and Democrat controlled Detroit, Michigan to be specific.

    What does any of that have to do with the price of tea in a China?

    Now that you have pointed it out, it is indeed curious that two such similar votes could be described so differently. Who knew? In any case, the workers themselves decided, which is as it should be, IMO.

    Having been in the auto repair industry for 26 years, I can assure you that VW is not creating a superior product anyway. All the advertising in the world won't change that. If VW as a company was so intent on union participation, why are most of the VWs sold in the US made in Mexico? Check the VIN on your "German" car, the first digit denotes country of origin.
