ShareThisConservative group’s anti-union effort to target U.S. auto plants 18 Feb 2014 A conservative group that helped defeat an organizing campaign by the United Auto Workers in Tennessee will take its anti-union fight to other auto plants in the South, its leaders said on Monday. The Center for Worker Freedom, which is linked to [corporate] anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist [who favors axing the middle class and poor, just not the top financial 1% and any corporations], plans to renew its battle against the UAW at plants in Alabama and Mississippi where the union wants to organize. The UAW suffered a bitter setback on Friday when employees at the Volkswagen AG plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, voted 712 to 626 against joining the union, even though Volkswagen had remained neutral in the union drive.
