VeeDub? Not in this house!

VW is apparently working with the UAW trying to toss out the failed UAW certification vote and trying to use authorization cards to ratfuck their way to unionizing the VW plant in Tennessee.  Obviously, it’s well known VW’s board is made up heavily of IG Metall’s union, but I really don’t think the German unions fully get what they’re actually getting when they join forces with the UAW.   I can tell you I’ll never own a VW, I’d never own a VW anyway, just based on their sketchy reliability of the recent, present, but the UAW shenanigans makes me go from no to OH NO FUCKING WAY.

Of course there is one positive to this, possibly, that the last time VW let the UAW sink their claws into their operation, it was a disaster, if it’s a disaster again, and maybe weakens VW’s hold on the smaller budget Eurocar market, does that maaaaaaaybe open up things…


If VW totally flames out because of this, maybe Nissan-Renault or PSA Peugeot Citroen would entertain a return to the US market?

Not gonna lie, I’d love to see the Clio Sport or the 208 come to the US…
