Union files for vote by workers at Mississippi Nissan plant

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – The United Auto Workers has filed to force a unionization vote at a Nissan Motor Co. plant in Mississippi after a yearslong campaign to build support.

Sandra Hightower of the National Labor Relations Board confirmed that the board received the UAW’s election petition in its New Orleans office Monday.

Officials with Nissan did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The UAW declines comment but has scheduled an event Tuesday at its office near the plant in Canton, just north of Jackson.
