Just look at what we did this past month in covering the historic union election 

We want to keep covering this story, but need your help to do so.

Workers hope that the NLRB will hold another election in six months. During that time, the union will have to prove the promises made by the company to stop the union drive were empty.

“[Nissan] is going to play this nice guy role for about 3-6 months … then everything will go back to normal,” says Nissan worker Robert Hathorn. “Then, the same people who voted against us are gonna be the same ones leading the campaign—more than we are.”

It’s crucial that we continue to draw attention to this struggle, as workers on the shop floor continue their fight for a union.

So help Payday stay and cover this vital story. Donate today!
