During a visit to Chattanooga, Gov. Lee expressed concern that unionization at the Chattanooga VW plant and the presence of additional labor unions in Tennessee would hurt the state’s competitiveness, the Time’s Free Press reports. Lee said he believes organized labor makes attracting companies, including foreign companies, much more difficult. He said he hopes that workers vote down the union organizing campaign by the United Auto Workers. The vote is scheduled for June 12-14.
