Nissan Workers Show Christmas Spirit

Nissan component manufacturers forgo Christmas gifts…again.

Nissan Workers Show Christmas Spirit - the Nissan workers said no to their Christmas gift this year to support a worthy cause.

Congratulations to the workers at Nissan’s vehicle component manufacturing plant in Melbourne who have again donated their annual company Christmas gifts to charity.

The team of 160 workers told management to put the funds that would have gone towards getting them a gift this year to charity, the move along for the purchase of a much needed ventilator machine for the Royal Children’s Hospital.

The workers decided to donate the value of their gifts after a fellow Nissan employee lost his five-year-old son, Alexander, to pneumonia after a battle against a rare genetic neurological condition.

Peter Jones, Managing Director of Nissan Casting Australia, said this is not the first time the Nissan workers have made the sacrifice for a very worthy cause.

“This is the third year that staff have decided to forgo their employer Christmas gifts to support a charity of their choice,”

“This year the team wanted to show their support to the Galway family and to help raise much-needed funds to buy this lifesaving equipment for the Royal Children’s Hospital.”

Well done to all involved.
