Tennessee republican Gov. Bill Haslam says last week’s vote to unionize a handful of workers at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga plant amounts to “cherry—picking” and doesn’t indicate any major change in the state’s anti—union approach. Skilled maintenance workers at Volkswagen voted 108—44 to organize with the united autoworkers union last week. The UAW lost a union election for the entire assembly line in February of last year. Republicans have long opposed any move to unionize southern car factories, saying it could hurt business recruitment efforts. Volkswagen has been neutral on union representation, but says it will appeal last week’s vote since it included only a fraction of employees.
