Students Stand Their Ground in Support of Nissan Workers

August 30, 2013

At Nissan’s Canton, Miss., plant, there are more than 3,000 workers who want a voice at work to improve conditions and secure decent work for more members of their community. Their campaign for justice has won support both locally and globally.

One of the growing groups backing the Nissan workers is Concerned Students for a Better Nissan. While the group has received great support from students at several colleges and universities, as this video shows, they found a more hostile reception outside a Nissan dealership when they decided to spotlight what workers say are the tactics Nissan is using to intimidate workers who are seeking a union voice.
