No Future at Conway
There are currently plans in place at Conway that they are set to implement within the next few years. Those plans include the complete elimination of line haul runs. They plan on using contractors to run the freight. Furthermore, they plan on doing away with full-time employees and moving to a part-time and temp workforce. The purpose of that being a reduction in pay and abolishment of health benefits. It looks like Conway is dead set on doing this and they will do this. The only way to avoid this is to organize a union. These kind of drastic change of operations doesn't happen at ABF, YRC, or UPS. Their work is legally protected by their UNION contracts. If we hope to have any kind of future here at Conway it's time we get our own contract.
