LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The workers at an auto parts plant in Louisville have elected to join the UAW, the United Auto Workers union.

A majority of the 172 workers at the Faurecia Interior Systems plant in eastern Jefferson County signed union authorization cards.

The plant, which opened here two years ago, makes automotive interiors for vehicles produced at the Ford assembly plant in Louisville and the Fairfax assembly plant in Kansas City, Kan.

The global company, which is  based outside of Paris, France,  says it preferred working directly with employees rather than a third party, but that it  respects the workers' choice, and will work with the union and staff to see to the plant's success.
