United Auto Workers Lose Crucial Union Battle At Mississippi Nissan Plant

Nissanplant votes down unionThe U.S. labor movement suffered a painful loss late Friday when workers at a Nissan factory in Mississippi overwhelmingly voted against joining the United Auto Workers union.

The election involving about 3,700 workers at the Canton manufacturing facility was the most closely watched of its kind in years. Desperate to expand its footprint in a region that can be hostile to unions, the UAW poured a decade of organizing into the Mississippi campaign, marrying a message of worker rights with civil rights to persuade the mostly African American workforce to join their ranks.

According to a preliminary count of ballots released by Nissan, the workers ultimately rejected that message, 2,244 to 1,307. Those results haven’t yet been certified by the National Labor Relations Board.
