Who We Are

Established in July 2014, UAW Local 42 represents a growing number of employees at Volkswagen in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Local 42 is working to ensure that Volkswagen team members in Chattanooga enjoy the same employee representation as their colleagues at other Volkswagen plants around the world.

Local 42 is organized under the constitution of the International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW), one of the largest and most diverse unions in North America, with members in virtually every sector of the economy. UAW-represented workplaces range from multinational corporations, small manufacturers and state and local governments to colleges and universities, hospitals and private non-profit organizations.
