Watch: Mississippi NAACP Talks about Nissan’s Anti-Union TV Ads

Workers at the historic 5,000 person March on Mississippi against Nissan in March. (Mike Elk)

Last night, Payday raised over $900 that we need to travel to Canton, Mississippi (Donate here).

As we were raising funds and getting ready to leave from Goshen, Kentucky, we got a phone call from Mississippi NAACP Organizer Frank Figgers, Co-Chair of the Mississippi Alliance for Fairness at Nissan.

Figgers talked to us about the effects that are anti-union TV ads that Nissan is running are having on the union election.

“I also think and have confidence in that workers are much more clever than that” says Figgers. “They have been experiencing all these things for a number of years”.
