- Workers at Volkswagen's (VLKAF) three-year-old plant in Chattanooga in Tennessee are due to start voting today on a proposal to allow the United Auto Workers to represent them.
- The ballot, which appears to be too close to call and lasts till Friday, is seen as having a major influence on the future of the union.
- If the UAW wins, it could target other foreign-owned plants in the South.
- However, if it loses, says Clark University professor Gary Chaison, "it will look like a union of yesterday: a once-powerful organization that has outlived its usefulness and no longer (has) appeal to the new workforce."
