UAW Challenges VW Vote

Sore losers.

Feb. 24, 2014

The UAW isn’t taking their recent defeat at Volkswagen so well. The union powerhouse, which has seen its membership decline to a quarter of what it once was, needed badly to win the unionization vote at Chattanooga’s plant so as to make inroads in the non-union South. Now the sore losers have decided to appeal to the U.S. National Labor Relations Board to void the results and schedule a new vote, citing “interference by politicians and outside special interest groups.” And why not? When the feds bailed out Detroit in 2009, it was actually a bailout of the UAW. They’re just coming back for seconds.

It's Right. It's Free.
