Canton Nissan Workers To UAW: Go Home

CANTON, MS (Ben Caxton) — 3700 workers at a Mississippi Nissan assembly plant have rejected union representation by a nearly two-to-one margin. The United Auto Workers union formally charged Nissan with breaking federal law in its anti-union campaign as polls closed. The National Labor Relations Board could eventually order a new election if they agree; Nissan denies wrongdoing and says the UAW tried to undermine the vote. The years-long effort at Nissan focused on linking civil rights and workers’ rights for the mostly African-American workforce. Nissan warned a union would hurt its economic competitiveness. The UAW has never fully organized an international automaker in the South.
