Union Seeks Vote At Canton Nissan Plant

CANTON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Union supporters at a Nissan Motor plant in Mississippi say United Auto Workers representation would increase their voice in workplace matters. A day after filing for an election seeking union representation, workers and supporters held a kickoff event Tuesday at the UAW office near the automotive assembly plant in Canton. The union has struggled to organize foreign-owned auto plants across the South; Nissan employs 6500 workers at the Mississippi complex and opposes the union although it says workers are free to choose. The petition seeks a vote at the end of this month but the National Labor Relations Board will ultimately set a date if it certifies the petition.
