APWU Members Join UAW’s ‘March on Mississippi’

03/09/2017 -


Over two dozen APWU members came from 
multiple states to support the Nissan workers efforts to organize. 

APWU members stood in solidarity at the “March on Mississippi” with Nissan workers attempting to organize a union and join the United Auto Workers (UAW).

Over five thousand union brothers and sisters protested near the Nissan plant in Canton, MS, in support of the plant’s workers fighting to organize the notoriously anti-union plant. After the rally, workers marched two miles to the plant. They delivered a letter to Nissan demanding the right to vote for union representation and for a contract to address wages, require safer working conditions and improve job security – free of fear or intimidation.
