Labor Fascism in Chattanooga?

Strange things are happening concerning the recent labor vote in Tennessee when workers at a Volkswagen factory rejected an organizing effort by the United Autoworkers Union.

According to this story, it seems the Company and the rejected Union are trying to somehow have the vote nullified or something like that.

According to the article they want to form some kind of possibly illegal work council now that the legal vote that was supervised the Labor Board failed to produce a contracted bond.

The theme of the article is comparing this situation to fascism.


As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms.

In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW's Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626.

Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers' "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

What is this really all about?

Sour grapes?

An attempt to make unionization "automatic" without worker input and vote ?

Id have to say the UAW and Volkswagon look like they had a prior deal worked out beforehand......
Now they want to roll back the vote to implement their crooked agenda.....
