My prediction is twofold.

1-I don't believe it will pass.
Narrow defeat.

2-If it does pass, VW will be gone from TN within 5 years.

I would have thought out of the thousands of employees they would have picked classier looking people to represent them on TV (vote no people). I am sick of seeing the lady with tattoo's all over saying "if you attack VW you are attacking me". I know they are planning a significant plant expansion to build another vehicle in the real near future I hope this union crappola doesn't ruin it. I wonder if Gestamp is Union? Will they be next?

Detroit, MI is a shining example of what a union can do to a town.

You cant blame all the problems in Detroit on organized labor.

You got that right lots of other towns have organized labor that are doing well. Just another anti-Union rant some politician spewed out and it was bought hook line and sinker.

Vw chattanooga produces great vehicles because of hard working and dedicated team members, and better than industry-standard attention to quality. Team members (hourly), within some departments more than others, have suffered from and compensated for failures and ineptitude of management from top to bottom.

They had the chance after the first vote to clean house, but it only got worse. They screwed up because the majority was fed up and would rather take a chance on the UAW, than to quit and start over at another job. Fischer rolled in at the last minute to make changes and attempt to influence the vote (which may have worked to an extent), but it may be too little too late.

No, you can blame it on the democrats. Since unions unilaterally support democrats, yea you can blame it on the unions.

Unions do nothing but give jobs to people who aren’t competent enough to do the job. A person shouldn’t be awarded a position just because they have been somewhere longer.

Still haven't heard the last of these jokers i bet.
We live about 5 minutes from there, and know a bunch of folks that work there.
Only a couple we or our kids know of are pro union.
They'll keep doing just like their Democratic mentors do, vote until they get the result they want.
Im sure they learned valuable lessons on how to get it done.
