The United Auto Workers on Friday sought a new election at Chattanooga's Volkswagen assembly plant, but this time for a smaller unit of employees than in early 2014.
A filing with the National Labor Relations Board says that UAW Local 42 will seek an election on Nov. 5 and 6. The election will involve only the 164 full- and part-time maintenance, or skilled trades, employees at the plant.
Planned UAW vote
If approved by the National Labor Relations Board, VW’s 164 maintenance workers will vote Nov. 5 and 6 at the plant’s conference center to be represented by the UAW for collective bargaining purposes.
