Bill Ozier Comments on Volkswagen UAW Victory

Media Mentions

December 8, 2015

Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Bill Ozier commented on the outcome of the latest union vote at the Volkswagen (VW) plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The company's skilled maintenance employees at the VW plant in Chattanooga voted last week to designate the UAW as their collective bargaining representative. The vote among this smaller group of employees follows the vote against union representation by the company's entire hourly work force in February 2014. Volkswagen has indicated that it will appeal the decision by the NLRB's Regional Director to allow the vote among the smaller group to the full NLRB in Washington, D.C., although Bill projects that the Board will follow its recent precedent and not overturn the vote.

The full article, "Tennessee Governor Dismissive of 'Cherry-picked' UAW Victory," was published the Associated Press on December 7, 2015 and is available online.

In addition, Bill's comments were included in the article, "UAW Brings Charges Against Volkswagen for Refusal to Bargain," that was published by The News Tribune and The News & Observer on December 21, 2015 and is also available online.
