can'tLast week, we posted about the renewed level of activity taking place at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, including:
The union election covering workers responsible for maintaining and repairing machinery and robots to determine representation by the United Auto Workers starting on Dec. 3
A German union that has worked closely with the UAW in trying to get a union and works council established at the Chattanooga plant
The US Chamber of Commerce added to the conversation when they released a study that they say shows that works councils like those under consideration at Volkswagen wouldn’t be legal in the United States
This week kicks off with lots of news related to the UAW in the headlines including workers out of work on strike during Thanksgiving, and a pair of union contracts that were narrowly approved by hourly workers at GM and Ford. Food for thought for workers considering union representation, including those from Volkswagen who will be voting in early December.

Live-tweeting can be an incredibly powerful way to drive conversations around an event and building a lasting audience on Twitter regardless of industry or size. But before you start tweeting about just any event, here are a few best practices to consider.
