Family members of VW Chattanooga employees recently formed the UAW Local 42 Family Committee. The family committee is here to support our efforts to form a union and win a contract that’s good for employees and our families.

A family-friendly job is a job with stability, reliability, and fairness. It means having a work schedule that allows us to schedule quality time with our loved ones and make plans that we can count on. It means being able to make a family budget without fear of lost income from last-minute unpredictable scheduling changes. And it means competitive compensation, benefits, and fair advancement opportunities that allow us to see our jobs as long-term careers.

As Volkswagen Chattanooga employees, we put our labor and skills to work to build a product we’re very proud of. We need the company to respect the value we bring and give greater consideration for our lives outside of work. The right to negotiate to make VW a more family-friendly workplace is an important reason we need a union.
