Volkswagen's works council said it would press on with efforts to set up labor representation at the automaker's U.

S plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, after workers there voted against any such step involving the United Auto Workers (UAW) union.

Employees at the plant, in a region traditionally hostile to organized labor, on Friday opted to reject representation by the union, whose membership has plummeted 75 percent since 1979 and now stands at just under 400,000.

"The outcome of the vote does not change our goal of setting up a works council in Chattanooga," Gunnar Kilian, secretary general of VW's works council said in a statement on Sunday, adding that workers continued to back the idea of labor representation at the plant.
