VW Workers May Still Get Works Council, Despite UAW Vote
Steve Bernstein was quoted in an article entitled, “VW Workers May Still Get Works Council, Despite UAW Vote,” on Legal Monitor Worldwide and wincrt.blogspot.com.
According to the article, workers at Volkswagen's Chattanooga, Tenn., plant may have voted against joining the United Auto Workers union last week but they may still gain some representation in the company through the formation of a works council.
According to the article, labor experts said they think it will be very difficult, if not impossible, to set up a works council without an independent union.
"While it's something novel, they are up against a statutory framework set up to prevent this from happening," said Steve.
