Common to hold concert to support Nissan workers

Posted: Updated:
CANTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Grammy award winning artist and actor Common will hold a concert at Jackson State University in support of the Nissan workers efforts to organize a union at the plant in Canton, MS. 

Nissan workers and their supporters tell us that they are urging Nissan to stop its unfair treatment of workers by denying them a fair union election through the use of intimidation and threats to discourage employees from considering a union.

Nissan's mistreatment of workers in Canton was outlined in an internationally released report in 2013 that documented how the company violates the international human and labor rights of its U.S. workers.

We are told that the event will publicly recognize the Jackson community's support and announce upcoming stops on CSBN's multi-city Nissan Truth Tour, which will highlight the intimidation and threats pro-union workers face from Nissan and the unfair treatment of the large temporary workforce at the Canton Nissan plant. 

Actor and activist Danny Glover will also attend this important event.  The concert will be held at the Rose McCoy auditorium at JSU on Friday, March 21st.
