Bob King and the United Auto Workers have decided to pull their objections to the results of the Volkswagen union vote at the Tennessee plant.
“The United Auto Workers union on Monday said it was withdrawing its objection claiming undue outside political interference in the result of a February election it lost among workers at the Volkswagen AG plant in Tennessee,” reports Reuters. “UAW President Bob King, in a statement issued by the union on Monday, said the process of objecting to the National Labor Relations Board could have dragged on for months if not years.”
But don't celebrate quite so quickly. Because the UAW isn't so much withdrawing their complaint as they are changing venue. King and company have decided to appeal to Congress, instead of going through the grievance process at the NLRB.
If you're like me, this should make you very suspicious.
After all, this is likely the most radical NLRB we've had in the history of our country. This is the National Labor Relations Board that decided that NCAA athletes are employees of their respective universities, and thus should be allowed to unionize.
I mean how much more commie can you get than attacking college football and college basketball?
Go Big Red! doesn't mean what it used to.
When the UAW says that they are going to appeal to Congress, they really mean the United States Senate, because the Republicans, who would not be very sympathetic, control the House.
So if United Auto Workers believe that the National Labor Relations Board won't give them a better deal than the United States Senate will, it bears looking at the case they'll make.
