A major union is trying to organize workers at Alabama's Mercedes-Benz plant near Tuscaloosa.
The Tuscaloosa News reports that the United Auto Workers has created a website, uawvance.com, targeting workers at the plant in Vance.
Al.com reports that the UAW is trying to organize workers at the 3,000-employee plant in an effort supported by the German union IG Metall.
Felyicia Jerald, a spokeswoman for the plant, said Mercedes-Benz has always been neutral on the topic of unionization at its Vance auto factory. She said that stance is continuing in the latest campaign.
Al.com reports that the UAW has a similar campaign underway at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., where it is also getting support from IG Metall. It's also seeking to organize at the Nissan plant in Canton, Miss.
