WASHINGTON (AP) — The United Auto Workers have appealed the recent close vote by workers at a Volkswagen plant in Tennessee that rejected the UAW’s bid to represent them.

In its filing last week with the National Labor Relations Board, the union asserted that “interference by politicians and outside special interest groups” had swayed the election.

The UAW bid was defeated in a 712-626 vote, even though the German company generally is considered labor-friendly. Volkswagen did not oppose the unionization drive.
