- Employee voting ends today at a Volkswagen (VLKAY) plant in Tennessee on the issue of joining the UAW.
- The stakes are very high with the UAW still searching for its first representation at a plant of a foreign automaker.
- The Big Three (GM, F, FIATY) are quiet on the issue, but wouldn't mind a more level playing field.
- What to watch: There are close to 20 automobile plants in the South at risk of unionization if Chattanooga falls. A Mercedes-Benz (DDAIF) factory in Alabama and Nissan (NSANY) location in Mississippi could be the first two on the list.
