Union Vote at Bell Aircraft Plant

The National Labor Relations Board announced the result of union certification elections at the Bell Aircraft plant in Marietta. Some 76 percent of the mold loft workers voted to be represented by the International Association of Machinists (AFL), while 18 percent voted no union, and 6 percent CIO. Meanwhile the United Auto Workers (CIO) became the bargaining agent for maintenance and production workers by a vote of 51.6 percent for the CIO, as opposed to 44.4 percent for the AFL and 3.6 percent for no union.
