A federal workplace safety agency wants to fine Nissan Motor Co. more than $21,000, saying the company's Mississippi plant should have better trained a maintenance worker who lost three fingers in July.The company in the past has said that it opposes a union at the plant, but now says the choice is up to workers, although pro-union workers complain that Nissan continues to tell them to reject the UAW. The union has mounted a multiyear campaign trying to get the company to sign a neutrality agreement before a union vote, and has been trying to pressure Nissan through the French government's ownership stake in Nissan's business partner, the Renault Group.Nissan ultimately agreed to allow the workers to take part if they got training to be part of the plant's safety committee.
