After Rejecting UAW, VW Workers May Still Get Works Council
Steve Bernstein was quoted in an article entitled “After Rejecting UAW, VW Workers May Still Get Works Council,” published in Legal Monitor Worldwide.
The article detailed Volkswagen's vote at the Chattanooga plant, which was 53 percent to 47 percent, against the International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America.
Labor experts said they think it will be very difficult, if not impossible, to set up a works council without an independent union, according to the article.
"While it's something novel, they are up against a statutory framework set up to prevent this from happening," said Steve.
