… the U.A.W. is playing Cute …

.. by trying to establish a ” local ” at the VW plant in Tennessee …

.. they cannot legally do so , unless they have had a certified local formed as the result of an election , or as the result of a ” card check ” certification . They have had neither of these done ….

.. matter of fact , they have just recently just lost a representation election , earlier this year . They certainly cannot force their way into the plant by the back door , either …

.. what I think they are trying to do is go for card – check certification , by the back door . The U.A.W. has set up the local to support the effort , and , so far , it is voluntary . Most likely they are soliciting membership cards as a show of support . They will try to do it by hook or crook , especially with a friendly ObamaCrap N.L.R.B. running blocker for them …

.. then , once they have a ” majority ” of the plant , presto , they can go official .

… A Job Well Done [Non Union Auto Workers] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 18th,2014

.. these folks work for Wolkwagen , down yonder in Tennessee .

.. this operation is non – union . Tennessee is a right – to – work state . There are now 25 right – to – work states , including now states in the Midwest (Michigan and Indiana) and the Northeast (New Hampshire) . That has to drive Big Labour crazy .

.. The U.A.W. really worked hard on this one . They really wanted the victory , to finally organize one of these non – union auto operations . In this situation , an added push was put in by IG Metall (Germany) , the union that Volks has to deal with back home . Metall is a labour federation , but it is also a labour union (in autos) . They wanted this one , too .

.. Metall did not like Volkswagen having a non – union operation anywhere , but , especially in the United States . So , I.G. Metall put pressure on Volks , and Volks (which was a big no – no under U.S. labour law) put pressure on and tried to bribe the workers . They wanted the workers to have what is known in Germany as a ” works council , ” so that the workers would have a say in how the business is run . In the U.S. in a non – union operation , that is a no – go . The only way to have a works council is for the operation to unionize . Which has not happened at any non – union operation in the South , or in a right – to – work state .

.. it was not a blowout by any means . It was about 725 votes to about 620 votes , but it was decisive . Especially so , considering the impermissable pressure coming from IG Metall and Volkswagen . Someone should remind them the next time about U.S. labour law , and what is allowed , and what is not . IG Metall ‘ s pressure is kosher . The company ‘ s [Volkswagen ‘ s] is not kosher .
