It finally arrives.  From the Chattanooga Times-Free Press:

Chattanooga Volkswagen workers will vote in an election conducted by the National Labor Relations Board on Feb. 12 to 14, the United Auto Workers announced today.

The Chattanooga workers will decide whether to approve union representation by the UAW for the plant’s nearly 2,000 hourly workers. UAW is talking with Volkswagen about establishing a German-style works council in Chattanooga, which would be the first of its kind in the United States.
