BATTLE CREEK, Mich. -- The United Auto Workers union is seeking to represent workers at a Denso Manufacturing Michigan Inc. plant that makes heating and cooling systems for the auto industry.
The UAW has been conducting an organizing campaign at Denso since Friday, said union supporter Bob Moats, a Denso employee.
Denso employs more than 2,500 people at the plant.
Barbara Ley, corporate services manager at Denso, defended the company's track record as an employer.
"We have a long history of providing excellent jobs and benefits and a stable work environment," Ley told the Battle Creek Enquirer for a story Thursday.
For the effort to move forward, federal labor law requires that 30 percent of employees sign statements demanding a vote on union representation. If a majority votes for the union, then it's up to the National Labor Relations Board to certify the union to represent workers in collective-bargaining agreements.
