This decision could have significant implications for future redistricting efforts and the protection of minority voting rights.


The United Auto Workers union has lost a closely watched election at a Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, with workers voting against unionization by a margin of 833 to 776. This marks the latest setback for the UAW’s efforts to expand its membership in the South, where it has faced strong opposition from anti-union groups and politicians. The union has vowed to continue its efforts to organize workers at the plant and other facilities in the region.
