On the heels of yesterday’s announcement from TN Governor Bill Haslam’s office that the governor will ignore a subpoena from the National Labor Relations Board, the office of U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) has followed suit, stating that Sen. Corker will not be attending the NLRB hearing.
“Everyone understands that after a clear defeat, the UAW is trying to create a sideshow, so we have filed a motion to revoke these baseless subpoenas,” said Todd Womack, Corker’s chief of staff. “Neither Sen. Corker nor his staff will attend the hearing on Monday.”
The TN. Attorney General’s office is still looking over the subpoenas, which have been issued in the United Auto Workers’ suit attempting to overturn its February election loss at Volkswagen’s plant in Chattanooga, TN.
