The Right to Work Foundation is Offering Free Legal Aid to Chattanooga Volkswagen Employees in response to a public report that the United Auto Workers union reportedly pressuring Volkswagen to allow UAW to bargain for all the plant's employees.
Mark Mix said, "The National Right to Work Foundation has seen again and again the UAW union hierarchy pressure companies to cut backroom deals designed to push workers into a union without employees' support."
