When Kia Motors decided in 2006 to build its first North American manufacturing plant in West Point, it did so thanks to tax breaks and other incentives promised by the state. One of Georgia’s promises was the recruitment and training of workers. The facility now employs 3,000 people. But the way those workers were hired is now at the center of a lawsuit.
A flight attendants' union on Wednesday lost its all-or-nothing fight to cover those workers at Delta Air Lines Inc. The results showed almost 48 percent of Delta flight attendants voted in favor of joining the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA. They needed a majority.
