Laredo Teamsters Stand Strong

XPO Laredo employees are still standing strong 3 years after voting for union representation. They continue to fight against XPO's tactics that include delays, court appeals, discouraging employees, and blaming our Teamster representatives for not having a contract. No matter how much money XPO has spent on lawyers and anti-union consultants, we are convinced that our best option to stop the abuse and terminations is to have a union. We must  continue to support union representation. Laredo teamsters are standing strong for our future!

XPO Workers Demand Fairness, Respect at XPO Logistics’ Terminals Nationwide

From https://teamster.org

Employees ‘March on the Boss’ to Demand Fair Bargaining
(WASHINGTON) – Workers at multiple locations across the nation today “marched on their bosses,” delivering a clear message to management and demands that XPO Logistics, Inc. bargain their contracts in good faith without delays. They also want the company to respect the rights of its workers to organize and form a union without intimidation or harassment.
“As Americans get ready to celebrate Labor Day, the XPO workers’ actions today remind us that the long, hard struggle for workers’ rights is far from over,” Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa said. “XPO continues to be the poster child of corporate greed, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on union busters while outsourcing and eliminating jobs and cutting workers’ benefits. At the same time, CEO Bradley Jacobs continues to enrich himself with a huge stock bonus and a 481 percent wage increase while workers continue to be squeezed.”.........https://teamster.org/news/2017/09/xpo-workers-demand-fairness-respect-xpo-logistics-terminals-nationwide
