An anti-union group says Five Volkswagen workers moved on Tuesday to undercut the United Auto Workers' appeal to an election that resulted in the union's failure to organize VW's Chattanooga, Tennessee plant earlier this month. In a petition to the National Labor Relations Board, the workers asked to intervene in the UAW's appeal by saying the union and VW are in collusion to bring unionization to the Chattanooga plant. Not allowing them to intervene "would be akin to allowing two foxes to guard the henhouse" a petition filed on behalf of the workers by the National Right to Work Foundation says. The UAW on Friday filed the objection to the result of the February 12th through 14th election, in which VW's Chattanooga workers rejected the union by a 712-to-626 vote.
