UAW in "confidential discussions" with "a lot" of foreign automakers
As Reuters points out, the UAW hasn't exactly had the best track record when it comes to convincing workers in foreign-owned plants to join their cause. Despite the organization's best efforts, plants owned by Toyota, Honda, Nissan, BMW, Hyundai, Kia and Mercedes-Benz have all remained union-free. Now the UAW is doubling its efforts on Volkswagen with the company's new plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Attracting a new plant would likely help the union's flagging membership rates. Since 2000, the UAW has seen its roster plummet by 44 percent.
