Volkswagen has works councils in its factories across the globe. But not at its plant in Chattanooga, TN. And although the automaker would very much like to have a works council in Chattanooga, it has not implemented one because of the firm’s view that a works council, without a union, is illegal in the United States. This is a reasonable view, one that I called “likely correct” in an earlier post.
