Skip to comments.UAW Asks NLRB to Void Union Loss at Tennessee Volkswagen Plant
Posted on 02/22/2014 8:40:43 AM PST by ColdOne
The United Auto Workers (UAW) filed a legal challenge late Friday with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to the certification of the organizing vote it lost last Friday at Volkswagen's auto plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The challenge was submitted just hours before the seven day post-election filing deadline expired.
On Tuesday, attorney Joseph Farelli, a nationally recognized labor law expert, told Breitbart News the UAW would have little chance of success if it filed a challenge to NLRB certification of the election. "I don't think the NLRB is willing to break new ground and state the conduct of a third party is sufficient to void the outcome of the election."
As Farelli explained, labor law on the grounds for filing a challenge to an NLRB certification of an organizing election is very clear.

The UAW need some attention via baseball bat.
Thugs understand that approach.
It’s time for some real southerners to once again send the unions goons back home with a bloody nose.
The clarity of the law has never stopped Obama's people from doing what they want. I'm worried.
And whining, kicking and screaming because you lost is not sufficient grounds.
However, given the Left leaning makeup of the NLRB, I would not be surprised if they did what the UAW is asking.
Or an executive order in 10...9...8...7...
I have a question. Let’s say the Obama loaded MLRB finds some obscure reason to overturn the election. I am assuming they cannot award victory to the Union but can only order a new election. My question(s)are:
1. Is there recourse to stop this from happening (revote) and if so how is it done? Does it go to a local Court and begin it’s journey to higher courts on each appeal by the Union if they lose?
2. In a secret ballot I am assuming the ballots are not including the voters name. If true how does the Union hope to change votes? How would they even begin to know who to go to in order to change their vote?
The outcome is already determined.
The Holderdork will make sure of that.
The only recourse is to not buy VWs...which, given their low reliability, makes them ideal UAW products anyway.
To bad, because they are good machines...when they work.
They really don’t need to be sent back home.
Remember Obama telling the GOP, “I won” and the Democrats using the “voters spoke” in their defense of the liberal agenda?
Remember early on in Obamas first term when the unions were lobbying to do away with the secret vote?
Their own acronym THUGS
Yes I do. Do you think the NLRB can actually order how the votes would be cast?
What about my other question about an appeal to the decision of the NLRB should they call for another vote?
Wow! I never saw that coming. /sar
The UAW is emboldened due to all of Obama’s crimes. The time is ripe for them. I hate unions but have to admit that I belong to one. I work at a closed shop and have no other choice.
“And I’m taking my ball and I’m going to go home and tell my Mom!”
“If true how does the Union hope to change votes?”
I arrived at my first job just after a unionization effort where people against the union had their car’s paint destroyed and lost (in some cases) so many sets of tires they were forced to quit. Apparently what happened was employees in favor either did the deeds themselves or reported the non-union talk to union thugs.
You can bet if there’s a re-vote the union will send in its muscle.
Sounds like the Olympic Gold medal basketball game 40 years ago where the refs kept replaying the last few seconds until the Soviets won.
You knew it was coming. Liberals can never take NO for an answer.
How uncommon in the age of Obama. When a vote doesn’t go your way run to the feds. When the feds don’t go your way, run to the courts. When the courts don’t go your way, burn the building to the ground. When burning the building to the ground doesn’t work go judge shopping until you find one that votes in your favor.
If I remember correctly did not Volkswagen allow the UAW into the plant and talk to the workers? Seems to me the UAW were the ones doing the coersion/thuggery.
The mafia and organized crime lives!
-——The UAW need some attention via baseball bat——
Yes they do.
It was Senator Corker that swung the bat that left the mark that will last forever
they’d have to state some irregularity to revote i imagine. Of course the govt can make any claim they wish so its possible.
They either keep recounting, voting or litigating until they ‘win’. It’s the MarxoFascist/Democrat/Socialist/Union way.
They’re going to force their way whether the people want it or not, whether the people vote against it or not.
Truly the ONLY thing such people understand is brute force and the threat of force. The law and the will of the people mean nothing to them.
Just like the RATs, can’t win at the ballot box then take it to a controlled court.
Gee, they complain about a senator’s comments yet the union had the President speaking on their behalf. Seems to me Obama’s comments were far more damaging and the results should stand. I’ve already sworn off GM products despite my love for Corvettes and will add VW to the list (drove a VW for over 30 years and was considering a return to them) if they go union. This government interference in forcing a progressive agenda must be stopped, both in business and individual matters.
Yes, it’s exactly how they’ve overturned referundums that didn’t go their way. They’re all about the “will of the people” until it opposes their will.
No, Obama’s illegally appointed NLRB WILL overturn the results.
Will simply accuse the “no votes” of having been unduly influenced by politicians, and since VW doesn’t mind, they’ll be declared a union shop.
Are you an attorney? I do understand the NLRB can order another vote but you seem to be saying they can actually hand the victory to the union without even a new vote. Is that so and if it is can you tell me where you found that info because I cannot.
Are you really asking whether Obama and the NLRB would dare to act outside the law?
This would only be about the 177th time they’ve acted by fiat, outside the law.
