Nissan USA's union busting is a global shame

In partnership with the UAW, the International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America, which is one of the largest and most diverse unions in North America, with members in virtually every sector of the economy. UAW-represented workplaces range from multinational corporations, small manufacturers and state and local governments to colleges and universities, hospitals and private non-profit organizations. The UAW has more than 390,000 active members and more than 600,000 retired members in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

Workers at Nissan’s U.S. assembly plant in Canton, Mississippi, are campaigning for a fair union election process and an end to Nissan’s tactics of fear and intimidation.

Nissan, the world’s 6th largest auto manufacturer, and a well-respected corporate citizen, recognizes and collectively bargains with unions in Japan and all over the world. Yet when workers in the United States started to seek out union representation, Nissan’s American management adopted the time-worn tactics of professional union busters. This intense anti-union campaign includes making implied threats to close the plant and interrogating and harassing pro-union workers.

Workers, students, community leaders and human rights activists around the world are shining a light on Nissan USA’s shameful behavior and calling on the company to DO BETTER. In the plants, on campuses, and in our communities we are standing shoulder to shoulder with Mississippi workers who are fighting to defend their civil right to decide freely and without fear, whether they want to be represented by a union, or not. These are the same rights afforded to Nissan workers around the world.

Lend your voice to insist that Nissan Do Better and that Nissan’s Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Toshiyuki Shiga, intervene to make things right in Mississippi.
