UAW challenges Mercedes-Benz union vote, asks NLRB for new election

·1 min

The United Auto Workers (UAW) union is challenging the results of a recent organizing vote of Mercedes-Benz workers in Alabama. The UAW alleges that the German automaker engaged in unfair practices during the process, including firing pro-union workers and interfering with workers’ ability to advocate for the union. The UAW is now asking federal officials to order a new election. The union’s objections to the election have been received by the National Labor Relations Board. The organizing vote resulted in a majority of workers voting against union representation.
