Today the workers at Volkswagen's Chattanooga assembly plant will begin the process of deciding whether or not they want the United Auto Workers (UAW) to represent them.

The results, whatever they may be, will have long-lasting consequences for the union, the communities in Hamilton County, Tennessee, and the nation.

We hope and trust that the election will be a free and fair one, and that each worker will get the opportunity to make an informed decision.
