Right to Work Foundation Issues Special Legal Notice to Alabama Mercedes Employees

UAW union bosses target Mercedes-Benz workers for unionization

Springfield, VA (September 18, 2014) – The National Right to Work Foundation has issued a special legal notice regarding Vance, Alabama Mercedes-Benz workers targeted by United Auto Workers (UAW) union officials for unionization. The notice can be viewed here: http://www.nrtw.org/en/special-notice-alabama-mercedes-benz.

UAW union officials are waging an aggressive unionization campaign targeting Mercedes-Benz workers at the Vance plant. The Foundation's notice debunks UAW union boss Dennis Williams's claims that Mercedes-Benz workers must unionize with the UAW union in order to discuss wages and working conditions with their employer. The notice informs workers about what they can legally do if they oppose, or change their minds about their support of, the unionization scheme.

The notice also addresses workers' legal rights during a card check unionization campaign, similar to what UAW union officials attempted in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in case UAW union organizers resort to the coercive unionization tactic.

Right to Work Foundation Announces Offer of Free Legal Aid to Chattanooga Volkswagen Employees

Union and company are reportedly colluding to force workers into union ranks

Springfield, VA (April 1, 2013) – Mark Mix, President of the National Right to Work Foundation, has issued the following statement in response to recent media reports that United Auto Worker (UAW) union and Volkswagen AG (VOW.DE) officials are in talks to unionize the VW workers at the Chattanooga, Tennessee plant:

"Recent media reports suggest that UAW union officials are working to negotiate the workplace conditions of Volkswagen's Chattanooga employees even though the workers are not represented by the UAW union hierarchy.

"The National Right to Work Foundation has seen again and again the UAW union hierarchy pressure companies to cut backroom deals designed to push workers into union ranks whether the employees like it or not. For example, UAW officials vetoed pay increases and secretly pre-negotiated bargaining concessions at the expense of Freightliner workers in North and South Carolina in exchange for company assistance in unionizing the workers.
