    Labor-Clergy Coalition To March on Nissan Plant in Mississippi

    Missed this article by about a week but Bernie appears to be on it!

    Workers, trade unionists, clergy and social justice activists will join Sen. Bernie Sanders, actor Danny Glover and leaders of the NAACP for a march Saturday to support workers at Nissan’s giant auto plant in Canton, Mississippi.

    The action is organized by the Mississippi Alliance for Fairness at Nissan, a coalition of faith and civil rights leaders seeking to bring attention to Nissan’s labor practices at the plant, where the vast majority of the 6,400 or so workers are African-American. The United Autoworkers Union (UAW) launched an organizing drive in Canton in 2012.

    6400 of them deep south African Americans joining the union would be a momentum much needed.....Start cutting off the places they run too.

    The business mentality of this country is a lowlife scumbag business mentality. Cheap SOB's who think they can take advantage of anybody and everybody....pay nothing and get rich quick. UnAmerican and unChristian is what it is. Greedy filthy pigs.
    There's no thought ever of...we are gonna make a better country or world....just "how can I screw everybody for my dollar...whilst I do nothing for it....and think I can own their local, state and federal politicians too."
    If the unions can somehow get into the heads of these people down there....choices will be limited as to where they can run within our borders. I hope these Missipppi people grab onto it unlike the Boeing South Carolinians.......They really do need a spotlight shined onto their mentality...and a boost from people who think right...It's a great move by Bernie to go down their.....maybe it'll get the attention of the right people to get some kind of plan to attack the wrong thinking down there....and change it for the better.

    Nissan rejects dialogue with workers
    Earlier this month, top executives at Nissan North America received a letter from supporters of the Mississippi Alliance for Fairness at Nissan (MAFFAN), a coalition of civil rights leaders, ministers and worker advocates who support Nissan employees’ efforts to form a union.

    The two-page letter — signed by prominent supporters including U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, NAACP President William Cornell Brooks and Sierra Club President Aaron Mair — laid out three basic demands for the company on behalf of employees at its central Mississippi assembly plant, which produces models including the Altima, Frontier, Murano and Titan.
    Most carmakers in the U.S., when presented with these kinds of basic demands — stop threats and intimidation, ensure a safe workplace, and meet with employee representatives — would do the right thing and try to rectify the situation. Instead, Nissan’s response to Sanders, Brooks, Mair and others amounted to a snub: “We respectfully decline your request for a meeting.”

    Here we are with a foreign corporation, disrespecting American citizens in their home......and probably honor every politician whom are treasonous to their people. The politicians paid by these foreigners should be impeached and exiled.

    From everything I have read and everything I have posted here, Germany is not the problem. It is our good ole southern republican politicians.


    Just How Much Do Republicans Hate Unions?

    What most people probably don't realize is that this inherently hostile relationship between management and unions isn't something that's inherent in capitalism. In fact, in many places where there are capitalists making lots of money, corporations work—now hold on here while I blow your mind—cooperatively with unions. One of those places is Germany, and one of the biggest German companies, Volkswagen, is right now embroiled in a union election in Tennessee that has turned into a bizarre spectacle that is showing the true colors of American conservatism. If you thought conservative were just laissez faire capitalists, seeking freedom for businesses to create prosperity, you're dead wrong. What they actually want is something much uglier.

    On Monday, our own Harold Meyerson explained the context and history driving this election, but the short version is that in its Chattanooga plant, Volkswagen wants to create a "works council" of the kind that companies in Germany use, which is a system where management and workers come together to set policies, plan strategy, and solve problems. The details of U.S. labor law require a union if such a council is going to be created, which is one reason VW has seemed supportive of the United Auto Workers organizing the plant. Although VW hasn't come out and said they support the union, the signals they've sent strongly suggest that they do. "Our works councils are key to our success and productivity," said the VW executive who runs the Chattanooga plant.

    So faced with a union-friendly corporation, what have Republicans in the state done? One might expect them to say, "Every company should have the freedom to decide how to deal with its own workers; we may not be big fans of unions, but that freedom is what capitalism is all about," or something like that. But no. The Republican governor and state legislators have begun issuing threats that there won't be any future tax incentives for the company if the union wins the election. In other words, tax incentives are vital to bring jobs to the state—but if they're union jobs, we don't want them. We'd rather see our constituents unemployed than see them get jobs with union representation. So what you now have is Republicans fighting against a corporation to try to impose their vision of management-labor relations, one the corporation doesn't want.

    Time for a union at Nissan US plant


    Nissan’s Canton plant is one of only three Nissan facilities in the world, including two in Tennessee, where workers are not represented by a union. This week, employees announced plans to seek a representation election on 31 July – 1 August for blue-collar employees.

    “Nissan employees want fair wages for all workers, better benefits, and an end to unreasonable production quotas and unsafe conditions in Mississippi,” said Nina Dumas, a Nissan technician who has worked in the plant for five years. “The company doesn’t respect our rights. It’s time for a union in Canton.”
    Nissan employees’ move to form a union comes four months after the historic “March on Mississippi,” when an estimated 5,000 workers and civil-right activists converged on the Canton plant to demand that the company respect workers’ rights. Organized by the Mississippi Alliance for Fairness at Nissan (MAFFAN) — a coalition of civil-rights leaders, ministers and worker advocates — the march featured U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sierra Club President Aaron Mair, former NAACP President Cornell William Brooks, actor Danny Glover and others.

    NISSAN UNION VOTE SET FOR AUG. 3-4 IN MISSISSIPPI

    CANTON, Miss. — Acting on behalf of Nissan employees, the UAW today reached an agreement with Nissan to hold a two-day union representation election, supervised by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), on Thursday, Aug. 3, and Friday, Aug. 4, in Canton, Miss.

    In an election petition filed with the NLRB, Nissan employees originally sought to schedule the election earlier that same week but instead agreed to the Aug. 3-4 dates offered by the company.

    In announcing the election dates, the UAW criticized Nissan for stepping up efforts to intimidate employees following the July 11 announcement that an election petition had been filed. In the days following the petition, Nissan employees have reported widespread pressure by company supervisors in one-on-one meetings and in videos broadcast inside the Canton plant.
