The National Labor Relations Board has filed another unfair labor practices complaint against Volkswagen for hiking health insurance premiums and changing working hours of employees who voted for union representation at the German automaker’s only U.S. plant. Volkswagen is mounting a legal challenge to NLRB rulings in favor of the small group of skilled-trades workers who voted in 2015 to be represented by the United Auto Workers union.

But the NLRB says the federal appeals court case doesn’t override the UAW’s exclusive collective-bargaining rights over the terms and conditions of employment of the workers who maintain and repair the plant’s machinery and robots. Volkswagen Chattanooga spokesman Scott Wilson says that until the appeals court rules, the company is ”unable to bargain with the UAW without compromising our legal argument.”
