WASHINGTON – In a statement today, Acting Secretary Julie Su joined President Joe Biden in congratulating Volkswagen workers in Chattanooga, Tennessee, who filed for a union election on March 18, 2024: “I stand with President Biden in congratulating the Volkswagen workers in Chattanooga who filed for a union election yesterday. As I have said, unions are good for the country and every worker should have the free and fair choice to join one, without employer interference or coercion. The decision on whether to join a union belongs to workers, full stop. “Across the country, workers have been exercising their right to organize, while unions like UAW negotiated historic contracts, lifting the floor for union and non-union workers alike. I am proud to be the Acting Secretary of Labor for the most pro-union president in history and am heartened by this news out of Tennessee.”
