    Nissan refuses mediation of union complaints on Miss. plant
    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Nissan Motor Co. has declined U.S. State Department mediation of its dispute with the United Autoworkers over the union's attempts to organize a Mississippi plant.

    The UAW says Nissan is intimidating workers at its Canton plant and violating their rights to unionize under international laws.

    The UAW and the IndustriALL Global Union federation asked the State Department for mediation in April. That mediation could only happen if Nissan agreed, and the State Department announced Jan. 30 that the company had refused, saying it "regrets Nissan's unwillingness to participate in the process."

    The UAW's hovering presence forces Nissan in Mississippi to behave better even without an election
    OXFORD, Miss. -- I remember my late father, a tool and die maker, telling me with pride how the company he worked for in central North Carolina paid fair wages, offered good benefits, and treated workers with respect. "They do that to keep the union out," he said.

    As I got older and more jaded about business practices in America, I wondered, "How would Dad's company have treated its workers if it didn't have to worry about a union?"

    Chip Wells knows the answer: Even the unofficial presence of a union and its supporters help workers long before an election is held and can force a company to act right. Without that presence, companies are free to act badly.

    Union files complaint against Nissan
    A complaint filed last week against Nissan North America is the latest in allegations that workers at the Canton plant were threatened for union-related activities.

    Filed with the National Labor Relation Board on Nov. 30, the complaint alleges Nissan and Nissan employer Kelly Services have been "interfering with, restraining and coercing employees in the exercise of rights guaranteed" to them by law.

    Workers have been threatened with retaliation, including being fired, for their union and protected concerted activities, according to the complaint.

    Nissan denies the allegations.

    Unions question Nissan's sponsorship of Olympics in Brazil

    CANTON, Miss.

    International unions supporting an effort to unionize Nissan's Mississippi assembly plant are questioning the automaker's sponsorship of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

    Brazilian union representatives delivered a letter to Rio organizers Thursday claiming Nissan Motor Co. violates committee guidelines stating workers have a right to bargain collectively.

    Spokesman Philip Wilkinson says organizers received the letter.

    The United Auto Workers wants to unionize the 6,300-worker Canton complex over company opposition. Nissan spokeswoman Kristina Adamski says the company respects national labor laws and allows workers to choose unions or not, noting the UAW has never sought a vote in Canton.

    Top French Official Calls on His Government to Help Workers at Mississippi Nissan Plant

    Amazing. Sure a different attitude about unions in Europe then there is here.
    OXFORD, Miss. – A top deputy in the French National Assembly is calling on the French government to weigh in on behalf of workers at the giant Nissan plant in Canton, Miss., who want to have a union vote without management intimidation and threats.

    Christian Hutin, deputy chairman of the Social Affairs Commission and a member of the French National Assembly, addressed that nation’s governing body last month and asked that it help Mississippi workers by using its leverage as a major stockholder in the Renault corporation and thus a power broker with Renault’s partner, Nissan.

    The French government controls nearly 20 percent of Renault stock and 32 percent of its votes. Renault, in turn, shares an “alliance” with Nissan and owns 43.4 percent of Nissan shares. Carlos Ghosn is chairman and CEO of both Nissan and Renault.

    “The situation in (Canton) is dire and sadly not new, with the rights of workers seriously being compromised,” Hutin said in a recent statement. “Every possible step is taken to prevent the personnel from organizing a union inside the plant. Pressure, threats, harassment, routine propaganda … .

    The people at that plant and in Mississippi need to realize that Nissan Corporation of Japan owns their local and state politicians just as their types own every presidential candidate besides Trump and Sanders.
    IMO, You're never gonna take money out of politics therefore you must be a part of the money....meaning you must join unions and you must pay dues and you must become part of those numbers.
    That's the real path for American citizens to take back their local, state and federal politicians.
    These anti-union people are allowing Japan own our nation.
    Time to wake up.
    Before they sink us....and the ships been leaking for far too long.

    UAW Ramps Up Pressure to Organize Mississippi Plant
    Long frustrated in its dealings with the Renault-Nissan Alliance, the UAW is going international in its drive to revive its stalled organizing campaign at Nissan’s assembly complex in Canton, MS.

    So far, the UAW has made little headway as it takes on the Mississippi conservative political establishment, which has been hostile to trade unions for decades. “The UAW doesn’t have any support,” says one Nissan official, who asked not to be identified.

    Nor has the union attempted to stage a vote at Canton as it did at the Volkswagen plant in neighboring Tennessee, which generally is hostile to unions as well.

    However, the UAW and its allies in Europe and South America have succeeded in making life uncomfortable for Nissan and its CEO Carlos Ghosn, who has had to answer questions about Canton while testifying at a French National Assembly committee hearing. The UAW hasn’t forgotten Ghosn’s personal role in defeating a union organizing drive at the Nissan plant in Smyrna, TN.

    Workers at Nissan US fight for the right to organize

    For more than 10 years, management at the Nissan factory in Canton, Mississippi has been intimidating workers who show an interest in unionizing. On 12 October, trade unions from France and the US, workers from the Nissan plant, civil society leaders and a gospel choir marched together with American actor and activist Danny Glover through Paris to the French parliament building, l’Assemblé National.

    Danny Glover says that Nissan continues to threaten workers who want to join a union.

    “Workers’ rights are civil rights and our message is simple - enough is enough. Nissan must stop intimidating the workers and let them vote for a union without company interference.”

    Nissan taken to task locally for treatment of Mississippi workers Charlotte protest part of Southeast effort
    A coalition of labor leaders, clergy, community and racial justice advocates gathered at Scott Clark Nissan Saturday to criticize Nissan for its treatment of African-American workers at its Canton, Miss., plant. The activists are launching an initiative across the Southeast to bring attention to Nissan’s 5,000 Canton workers, of which an estimated 80 percent are African American. There is no employee union, as Mississippi, like North Carolina, is right-to-work state.

    “Workers’ rights are civil rights,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg NAACP Labor Chair Cindy Foster said. “We’re asking Nissan to do better by its hard-working employees, and we’re asking Nissan’s dealers and customers to join us to put an end to this unacceptable behavior by the company.”
    Other protests are scheduled at Nissan dealerships in Greensboro, Raleigh, Atlanta, Birmingham, Ala., Nashville, Tenn., and New Orleans. The Alliance for Fairness at Nissan, a coalition of civil rights leaders, ministers and worker advocates, is hand-delivering letters to Nissan dealers detailing the treatment of plant workers and calling for an end to the automaker’s anti-union stance.

    The Right-To-Work people are fine with the concept of Foreign interests like Nissan having more money and power in politics and legislation on local, state, and federal levels than the American workers who live here.

    That sums up the presidential race this year.
    People were sick of corporations owning politicians....yet right-to-work is exactlly how the politicians are owned.
    And the Republicans are the most treasonous party when it comes to politicians being hired by foreign interests.
