On reports of a union starting at Chattanooga's Volkswagen plant, Governor Bill Haslam said Wednesday that workers at the plant appear happy under the current setup.
He said, “One of the things that makes Tennessee great is that it is a right-to-work state. Volkswagen is an outstanding employer that puts a lot of focus on employee satisfaction. Ultimately the decision is one for the company and employees to make, but I’ve talked to a number of employees in Chattanooga, and they are very comfortable with the way things are now.
"Volkswagen continues to be incredibly successful with the current structure. I would hate for anything to happen that would hurt the productivity of the plant or to deter investment in Chattanooga.”
