UAW Nissan vote: The influence of civil rights, outsiders, France

The UAW has put local workers at the forefront of its campaign, which has often focused on respect and workplace quality-of-life issues such as safety and scheduling more than wages, benefits and pensions. Moon, though, says a shrinking UAW want to represent Nissan workers to get its hands on union dues, a common claim by union opponents.

"Make no mistake — this campaign is not about the hard-working Mississippians at Nissan — this is about a self-serving outsider campaign by a UAW desperate to survive," Moon wrote. "Fewer members mean fewer dues and the UAW has to do something. They see Nissan workers' paychecks as their final lifeline."
