Mike Pare of the Times Free Press reports that Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam is not planning on attending the National Labor Relations Board’s hearing in Chattanooga, TN next week, despite being subpoenaed by the United Auto Workers. More than twenty Tennessee officials have been subpoenaed by the UAW in connection with its attempt to overturn February’s election loss at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga, TN plant. It is currently unclear whether Governor Haslam’s non-attendance will affect the Board proceedings.
