Statement from Acting Secretary Julie Su on the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee

WASHINGTON – In a statement today, Acting Secretary Julie Su joined President Joe Biden in congratulating Volkswagen workers in Chattanooga, Tennessee who voted to unionize on April 19, 2024:

“I want to congratulate the workers at Volkswagen Chattanooga who have exercised their fundamental right to choose to join a union today. As I have said, unions are good for workers – and when workers do well, business does well and our country does well. Every worker should have the free and fair choice to join one, because when workers have a voice, we see increased wages, benefits, security and safety for all workers – union or not. President Biden and I are heartened by this step, and as the most pro-union, pro-worker administration in history, we stand with you.”
