TO THE EDITOR:
I have worked for Nissan Canton for 14 years. I went there for better pay and benefits. From day one, the UAW has been trying to get their greedy hands in the door ("UAW's Williams 'confident' union can win vote at Nissan plant," autonews.com, July 20). In 2003, we didn't know if we had any issues because we were a brand-new plant, but the UAW only saw dollar signs like they do now.
I am very grateful and appreciative for Nissan. The company has improved my daily living. Growing up, we weren't able to take family trips out of state, but now thanks to Nissan, I can.
Nissan is like every other company: It is in business to make itself rich, not its employees. We have decent pay and good benefits. No company is perfect, and there is always room for improvement and growth, but I speak for a lot of the hardworking people at Nissan Canton when I say there is no way that we want or need the union. So when Aug. 3 comes and we vote no, please leave us alone.
PATRICIA GARRETT JOHNSON, Canton, Miss.
