Mississippi could be on a short list of states for the location of a new Toyota/Mazda vehicle production plant. "I think now we're on everybody's radar screen," said Jay Moon, president and CEO of the Mississippi Manufacturers Association. "People look at us. We've done it twice now with major international automotive companies and we would be in the running for any other kind of company that would be of that size and shape." So what does Toyota say?
They may have lost the battle but the UAW isn't going down without a fight. It filed new labor practice charges against Nissan JUST before the polls closed Friday. Now, it's seeking a federal court order to prevent what it calls future unfair labor practices. The UAW alleges Nissan launched a campaign of "corporate threats and intimidation". "Allegations of intimidation made by the union are false," Nissan said in a statement.
It's less than 24 hours till the Nissan Canton vote. The ads, rallies, and campaigning are all leading up to the two day election. "The union makes us strong," sang the crowd at the Mississippi AFL-CIO event Wednesday. Many of the voices who joined in on the song aren't from Mississippi. "We're here to help our brothers at UAW win this election," said one advocate in the crowd. The AFL-CIO represents more than 100 existing unions in the state and they're hoping Nissan workers will vote yes.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
