COMP NEWS – Volkswagen is providing a substantial pay raise for workers at its Chattanooga, TN assembly plant.
Volkswagen is providing an 11% pay raise for production workers at the automaker’s Chattanooga assembly plant, the company announced Wednesday.
The pay hike is effective starting in December, and a compressed wage progression timeline begins in February, the company said in a statement.
“Volkswagen of America annually evaluates compensation for our production team members at the end of the year to ensure we continue to offer a competitive and robust compensation package designed to attract and motivate employees who make our daily operations possible at the plant,” the automaker said.
The 11% raise will come immediately and in full, according to VW. Starting wages at the plant are now $23.42 an hour, rising to a maximum of $32.40, the company said.
The compressed wage progression means employees can go from starting wages to topped out wages in a shorter timeline, according to the automaker.
