Union Members Rally in Alabama to Support Mercedes Workers Ahead of UAW Vote

  • 2 months ago
Union members rallied at a brewery in Hoover, Alabama, on Saturday to show support for workers at Mercedes-Benz's plant in Vance ahead of their UAW vote next week. Mercedes workers will start voting next week on whether to join the UAW, with vote totals expected Friday. Supporters see the election as pivotal for organized labor in the South, though some workers distrust the UAW's ability to improve their jobs. Around 70% of the Vance plant's 6,000 employees have reportedly signed union cards.
