Nissan workers in Tennessee to decide whether to form small union

Workers at the Nissan Motor Company’s Tennessee assembly plant are deciding whether to form a small union that could potentially wield considerable influence in setting wages and benefits.

The vote, which began on Wednesday and is set to conclude on Friday, is the culmination of a multi-year effort by the United Automobile Workers (UAW) to unionize workers at the plant, which employs some 8,000 people.

The unionization effort has been highly controversial, with some workers arguing that the union would be an unwelcome intrusion into their workplace and could have a negative impact on compensation and job security.

Others, however, contend that a union would provide a much-needed level of job security and enable them to negotiate better wages and benefits.

The stakes for the workers are high. If the union is formed, it will be the first such organization at a foreign-owned auto plant in the United States.

The vote is being closely monitored by both the UAW and Nissan. The outcome could have implications not only for the future of the Tennessee plant, but also for the entire UAW labor movement.

The vote comes on the heels of a high-profile campaign by the UAW, which has been trying to organize workers at the Tennessee plant since 2015.

The effort has been met with resistance from Nissan, which has argued that the union would be an unnecessary and unwelcome intrusion into the workplace.

At the same time, the UAW has argued that a union would give workers a greater say in the decisions that affect their lives, including wages, benefits and job security.

The vote will be closely watched by labor experts, who believe that if the union is successful, it could set a precedent for other foreign-owned auto plants in the United States.

The results of the vote are expected to be announced on Friday.
