-- The office of U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement:
"There has been some confusion about what happened yesterday related to the UAW's announcement that they are opening an office in Chattanooga and its impact on Volkswagen's expansion considerations," said Todd Womack, Corker's chief of staff. "The fact is, nothing happened. Any union can rent space in any city and open an office. Volkswagen made it very clear in their statement that they have no agreement whatsoever with the UAW."
