Will Volkswagen jump on the bandwagon of unionizing?
It's a question Mark West with Citizens for Free Markets hope employees say 'no' to.
"The employees are getting a lot of information these days and probably primarily from the other side. from the UAW. And that's a one sided story," said West.
The united auto workers wants to represent the Chattanooga plant as a union, but speakers want to convince employees they're not needed.
"The plant has been very productive and very successful for five years now. It's been great for the city of Chattanooga. There's great relationships between the management and workers so the question they might be asking is why do we need the UAW coming here from Detroit and organizing for us. We seem to be doing okay," said Matt Patterson of the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
Patterson points to Detroit as an example of the after effects of unions. The city went bankrupt the same day as the meeting.
"What it basically does is it restricts the business's ability to allocate it's resources to meet demands of the market. WE see that with GM which filed for bankruptcy as you know and now Detroit has filed for bankruptcy," said Patterson.
Many fear that if they don't join the union, Chattanooga's plant won't get the deal on making VW's new SUV model.
"I think that's another fear or scare tactic that certain parties are raising to try to intimidate the employees into signing a card and joining the union," said West.
