The UAW had a deal that the workers at VW could not be paid more than the workers at GM, Ford, etc.. and they make about $5 an hour more. This info emerged last week and affected the vote.

Is this guy stupid?  Doesn't he realize that if he wants to give the workers whatever they ask, a union is not required?  The point of a union is to give the employees the power to force the employer's hand to some degree.  If this guy favors such, why doesn't he just capitulate without having to be forced by the union?  I don't get his thinking.

This person is a member of the corporate level Works Council, NOT of the corporate Board of Directors.

The Works Council includes representatives from labor and management.

So he is a member of the labor side, scolding Tennessee for not approving unionization, in a matter which he likely has little or no say.
