UAW refiles for June union vote at Volkswagen's Chattanooga plant after earlier request dismissed by labor board

VW has been saying the UAW hasn't done this correctly. The UAW tried to blame VW. This is a vindication of Volkswagen.

The United Auto Workers on Wednesday filed a new petition for a union vote at Chattanooga's Volkswagen plant after the National Labor Relations Board dismissed an earlier request.

Brian Rothenberg of UAW International said the NLRB directed the board's Atlanta office to dismiss the original election petition filed on April 9.

But, he said, the board indicated that the UAW could immediately file a new petition and it did so seeking a vote among VW Chattanooga production and maintenance workers.
