UAW Local 42 = Part of the Solution

Greetings Fellow Volkswagen Team Members,

First, on behalf of all of the members of Local 42, I would like to thank you for the outstanding comments and questions while we were in RB1 on August 8th. One of the most important points made that day, is that Local 42 wants to be part of the solution in Chattanooga. We believe that with our voices involved in the decision making process here at Volkswagen, our work environment will improve, our quality will improve, and our processes will improve; dramatically, and in short order. We have an opportunity to work together to make our plant successful, but that will only happen when we have a true voice in the process.

Local 42 is asking all Volkswagen team members to get involved; attend Local 42 Union meetings, talk to your Local 42 elected leaders and members, and ask what help is needed to get the entire plant organized. Working together here in Chattanooga, we will achieve our goal of a contract for our plant.

This is our time!

In Solidarity,

Steve Cochran
President UAW Local 42
