Detroit — A group advocating for the right to vote on the unionization of a Nissan plant in Mississippi accused the automaker of intimidation at a protest Monday morning in Detroit.
Highlighted by the appearance of actor activist Danny Glover, members of the Mississippi Alliance for Fairness at Nissan (MAFFAN) held its protest mere steps away from Cobo Center and the 2013 North American International Auto Show.
According to the group, workers who show any interest in talking about organizing the plant in Canton, Miss., are intimidated by management hints that the plant would close if they unionized.
