UAW Challenges Alabama Mercedes-Benz Loss at NLRB

HeadlineMay 28, 2024

The United Auto Workers has filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board and requested a new vote for workers at a pair of Mercedes-Benz plants in Alabama. Around 5,000 workers voted against unionizing with the UAW earlier this month after an intense union-busting campaign by Mercedes-Benz, which the union accused of “wanton lawlessness.” UAW says the company forced employees to sit through anti-union meetings and retaliated against pro-union workers, including through termination.
