UAW President: Volkswagen Employees Take Strong Step Forward

12/9/2014: UAW President Dennis William released the following statement about new developments at Volkswagen in Chattanooga: “Today is a very important day for Volkswagen workers. The path for our UAW Local 42 members in Chattanooga has not been easy. They have worked with plant management to arrive at this significant milestone today and we are proud of their efforts. At the UAW, we believe what is good for the worker is good for the company, something that fits squarely with the German principle of co-determination.┬áThe UAW has been working for several years, with the support of the Volkswagen Global Group Works Council, to understand how we can best support the company’s ongoing expansion into North America in a way that benefits the workers as well as the company. Today is a strong step toward that goal.”
