Press Release from the TN House Democratic Caucus, Feb. 14, 2014:
Chairman Mike Turner’s response to Volkswagen vote
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner (D-Nashville) issued the following response to the Volkswagen workers’ decision not to be represented by the UAW.
“While we respect the decision made by Volkswagen workers, the result does not excuse the outrageous and unprecedented conduct by Tennessee’s Republican elected officials. The intimidation tactics and coercive efforts should be condemned, regardless of the outcome tonight. Workers deserved the right to vote without being pressured by outside special interests and elected officials, but that did not happen.”
