Historic March Signals to Nissan to Do Better, Right Racist Wrongs

March 6, 2017 Monika Greenhow

On Saturday, more than 5,000 auto assemblers, handlers and servicers marched with their families and supporters in Canton, Mississippi, to demand Nissan respect their employees' desire to come together in union. Nissan refuses to allow the people who work for them to have a seat at the table to voice their concerns and gain a better workplace. At the march, an active leader at the plant read a letter on behalf of his fellow members of the UAW. They called on the auto giant to stop attacking their union and threatening their families, and to include them at the table to improve safety and conditions in the plant.
