The office of Senator Bob Corker said that essentially "nothing happened" in regard to a United Auto Worker presence at the Chattanooga Volkswagen plant.
Todd Womack, Corker chief of staff, said, “There has been some confusion about what happened yesterday related to the UAW’s announcement that they are opening an office in Chattanooga and its impact on Volkswagen's expansion considerations.
“The fact is, nothing happened. Any union can rent space in any city and open an office.
Volkswagen made it very clear in their statement that they have no agreement whatsoever with the UAW."
