- Nissan workers in Mississippi vote on whether to unionize
By JEFF AMY, Associated Press - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
About 6,400 people work for Nissan and its suppliers in Canton, where Frontier and Titan pickups, Murano SUVs and NV vans are assembled.Excluded are managers, engineers, clerical workers, guards, and hundreds of contract laborers who do the exact same work on the factory floor.Union supporters say the UAW can prevent arbitrary treatment by managers and empower workers to bargain for better pay, working conditions and safety protections.The independent senator from Vermont and many of Mississippi's African-American politicians back the UAW, which spent years cultivating ministers and other local leaders.With the Canton plant's majority African American workforce in mind, the union has promoted historic ties between the labor and civil rights movements.In response, Nissan has saturated local television with campaign-style ads and posted "vote no" signs along roads for miles around.UAW Secretary-Treasurer Gary Casteel accuses Nissan of breaking federal labor law by pressuring workers to vote "no," and the NLRB has alleged eight violations of federal law.
