NIS­SAN WORK­ERS SAY NO TO UAW IN MIS­SIS­SIPPI

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

Work­ers at a Nis­san as­sem­bly plant in Mis­sis­sippi have re­jected union rep­re­sen­ta­tion, adding to decades of fu­til­ity by United Auto Work­ers or­ga­niz­ers at for­eign-owned auto plants in the Amer­i­can South.

A spokes­woman for Nis­san Mo­tor Co. said late Fri­day that the union lost a piv­otal vote by 3,700 el­i­gi­ble work­ers. Nis­san says the fi­nal vote to­tal was 2,244 to 1307.

The union for­mally charged Nis­san with break­ing fed­eral law in its anti-union cam­paign as polls closed. Fed­eral of­fi­cials could even­tu­ally or­der a new elec­tion if they agree. Nis­san de­nies wrong­do­ing and says the UAW seeks to un­der­mine the vote.
