The UAW has called for an election at the Nissan Canton plant. Our employees and members of the community deserve to have the facts about the campaign and the truth about what unionization could mean for our families, our community and our future in Mississippi.
Question of the Day
No. This is entirely false. Nissan values the Canton workforce, and respects the employees’ rights to decide whether or not they want to be represented by a union. We have not and will not intimidate or threaten our employees.
Under U.S. law, Nissan has the right to provide employees with the facts to ensure they can make the best decision for themselves and their families—free of any threats and intimidation. We intend to ensure our employees have the complete facts, so they can make an informed decision on election day.
I think it’s a great thing that Nissan has come in and created such a major change in the life of people.
I drive to work 55 miles every day. One way. I drive here because this is the best job I’ve ever had.
The possibilities are endless for the next generation in this community, right? And I don’t know if we could have said that 15 or 20 years before Nissan came here.
I am so excited that I work for a company that has several opportunities for advancement. There are opportunities to participate in management. There are opportunities for African Americans to participate in engineering in any form. It’s all in what you want to do, what you see yourself doing, and how you put forth the effort to do it.
It’s been a positive thing within my church. It’s been a positive thing within the African American community as a whole to have Nissan in place.
Through the sponsorship of Nissan we are able to provide 150 children each week with a bag of food to go home over the weekend…They’re here to make Mississippi a better place to live and raise a family.
Prior to Nissan coming to Jackson and to our community, the type of skilled jobs and the amount that employees could earn was not available.
