Union to target Nissan

For more than a year, the United Auto Workers have publicly said their mission is to organize the non-union transplants in the South. The original goal, if I remember correctly, was to have already unionized a plant by the end of this year. That obviously isn’t happening.

A lot of what they have been doing is behind the scenes so it is based on rumors in many cases but it was well documented that their first target was the Hyundai plant in Montgomery. Not sure how they came up with that choice, but workers had little to no interest and the union was sent looking for greener pastures.
