Laredo, TX Filed for Union Recognition

Laredo, TX is more than just another terminal for Conway. It's one of the busiest and most profitable in the system. They move up to 1,200 shipments per day and generate 6% of profit for the company. So how can a company that makes so much money and has their employees produce at record rates not be sharing the wealth with the people that make it happen? Every year, we are producing more and getting less compensation. They may make it appear that we get raises, but whatever they do give us, they take away from somewhere else. In the last quarter Conway made over $40 million in profits. Yet, they can't provide cheaper medical benefits for us, they can't provide a pension, they can't even provide full-time jobs anymore. We get treated as if we were working in a third-world country. Laredo is the front line of the union movement at Conway! This past friday they sent a petition to the NLRB to gain union recognition. That same day the drivers out of Laredo that ran to San Antonio FAC were segregated from the other drivers. They are trying to contain the movement, they don't want Laredo drivers to inform employees from other terminals. It's okay, they will get informed and once business is taken care of at Laredo, the other terminals will be clamoring to have a union just like Laredo!

Con-way freight should have appreciated their employees. Pro-Union is spreading like wild fire. Everyone is motivated and on the move. Attorneys, are a waste of money. These attorney eat,sleep,party,and travel on your dime Con-way. If you would have spent that money on high wages and lower premiums on health care coverage you would've only benefited. Ridiculous moves too late. How can you scare employees that have gone through struggles? Not easily I tell you. Everyone has gone threw some sort of hardship and have risen above but Pro-Union Employees are not backing down. The seed has been planted now to watch it grow. The only thing anyone has to fear is death, so seriously union is coming and there is nothing that can change that. Con-Way shareholders should be advised to see the trembling management. Note to Shareholders: Pull of an liquidate your investments. Resist the scare tactics and keep strong. Our reason are simple fair treatment, pay and lower health care premiums.

We here in the northeast need a stronger movement, people talk about it but you know things get squashed quickly, ill follow this and who knows maybe we can get on board but know that we're behind it up here!!!!

What else can they scare us with to change our mind? Loi? Walk us out? Treat us like animals? Blame us for their mistakes? Harass us? Laugh at us? He'll they do that every day, so there is absolutely nothing to loose. They want to close down? Go for it! We are no longer scared. We can also have our own meetings to decide what is best and fair at our workplace. And we are coming on board in california!!!!!!

That's what eating tacos and donuts will do to you. Of course driving a company car, getting a big bonus at the end of the year, and treating your employees like garbage will put you against a union. Well me too, I've been with the company for twenty eight years and I've had enough of the disrespect and mistreatment of the employees

Joe Nuno said...

I remember the union Drive!
What Ramon is saying, beware of the lying anti-union
Lawyers;
Company will become very passionate with its employees, offering raises, BBQ's and false accommodation.
I suggest take everything they offer, eat every single food giving to you, after all you need to be nourish when you make that decision and vote yes for unionism!
Then beware! Conway will turn like the Devil, they'll start throwing everything at you, bringing scums like Richard Brown union busting attorney or Jackson and Lewis firm.
They do one on one captive meeting and intimidate you, they'll bring false propaganda, the fake video showing victim of violence, look at them closely and see how fake the bleeding victim are, just like a b movie!
Like I said, beware of the child like baby, THE DEVIL that doesn't get it his way (Conway Corp)
Tighten up that circle of bodies, the guards, and protect the heart in the center of it, the core of the true believers.
And always keep your guards up!
Good luck my future Brothers and Sisters!

Conway Corp. should not see this as a surprise because management has done everything it possibly can to bring the union in. Management has this dictator philosophy that it's their way or as been said numerous times to everyone " there is the door if you don't like it" No pension , medical benefits ; in which as soon as possible Conway will get rid of when they figure out how to back door the system. Everyone already knows about the pay structure. How does cost of living difference justify the overtime ( one group gets it after 8 hrs the other after 50 hrs ) I guess to Conway that's fair. As an employee you have no voice . They care as much about you as they do the customer . Their only concern is coprarate shareholders pockets. Good luck Conway on trying to put out the fire that you started.

It's a shame it came to this u here on videos thanks to all of our employees we had a successful quarter time and time again but we aren't recognize as equals. No time and half over 40hrs for the folks in the south that work just as hard as the rest of us.Different pay scales as well. Con-way has to see this is a problem. This last raise was a joke, they'd been better off not even giving one. Maybe its time to bring in union representation or have a meetings with drivers on these issues . If the executives can't see what there doing to our company where in trouble. It's time to recognize your employees take off the blinders.We work hard each and every day to support our family's, treat us well and with respect, we share the fruits of our labor for your wealth as well remember how u got there.

I have been employed with the company for over 25 years. I have seen lots of changes and would have never felt we needed this until the management we have now. They have taken so much from us. We need organization and repersentaiin. Ask yourself this people.....do u want to work til you pass??? I dont....I would like to enjoy time with my family and grand kids before....With the pension plan for the older people.... (which they took 2 thirds of) you can't make it on that....Let's get it back....plus job security...lower health care cost. ...better coverage......remember in 2009 when took 5 percent as well as other benefits which most never came back....quote...we want to operate like ups with lots of on hand cash... well look at it now....they have so much on hand cash they don't know where to spend it.....Time to share the wealth....we all need to bond together and make this happen company wide and time is now....from all facilities. ...At once. . Newer hires need to remember you have the most to gain from this as you have many years...

Everyone is right we pay alot each week for terrible medical insurance. No pension. This is Con-Way's fault, all take and no significant gains to their most important asset, us their employees that make it all happen. Take the bull by the horns Loredo.

How to get started in organizing for better wages, benefits, treatment etc, etc, First let all know there is a strong movement starting with Laredo, tx .They vote September 12 th, and they will win the right to be represented by the teamsters because the representative we currently have is not working out, First talk to a few buddies and see were they stand on the issue of being represented by the teamsters, hopefully 6 to 8 but the more the better , next ya'll start taking a poll , don't be discouraged when you get a hell no, that will happen just move on , write the yes names down with there information, figure out how many drivers you have , don't worry about dock workers or CSR's unless they come to you they can be added later, now 65 percent is a very good number but get all you can on board, next contact your local teamsters , don't worry if they don't answer right away leave a message they will get back to you, I found out they don't sit by the phone waiting on conway drivers to call, maybe a hot line for conway drivers will help,next set up a meeting for everyone that put there name down with the teamsters local but double check with the hell no's and the I don't know drivers its important never forget or leave anyone out feelings do get hurt, have drivers write down all questions that's very important no quistion is to silly or dumb, after all questions are answered and all participants satisfied , then cards should be passed out and signed the cards are nessesarry because they will be turned in to the NLRB stands for national labor relation board , the NLRB then notifies conway of your intent to be represented by the teamsters all cards will be verified and no conway will not know who signed a card and you cannot be fired or harassed, then 30 to 42 days is the time frame for a vote, then the fun starts union busters will show up , remember sign a card vote yes, all the other B.S. just ignore and use common sense, remember all the promises that were broken really were never meant to be anyway we were told lies to appease us anyway, now its time no more lies sign a card vote yes.

Is unionizing Con-way the solution? I'm not sure I want to expand on this topic. I know that the corporate offices read our opinions and I hope that they take our thoughts into serious consideration when deciding the future of this company. It's up to them how much the wasp's nest will be disrupted.

The last meeting with regional managers about the 2% raise and the pay scale separation between XPN and XDE (a distance between the two of only 45 miles) was baffling to us all. XPN and XDE fight the same traffic, fight the same seasons, fight the same everything. Why the difference in pay? Something like this has never happened before- and for good reason!

You took from the smaller establishment to give to the bigger establishment. How does that make sense?

That 2% raise doesn't even cover inflation and the cost of maintaining our insurance. We practically received nothing. What do you know about running a business? You talk amongst yourselves, resolve nothing, and make no positive changes. Maybe us blue collar workers don't know everything there is to know about running a business but you also don't know everything there is to running a business and that's why there are so many of you.
Maybe from the beginning we should have put the effort in to save money. We definitely need to lower our claims, especially freight that is destroyed in transportation. Also, we should get rid of the nearly 900 corporate cars that the bosses use. Tell me... how necessary are those? How much do you think it costs the company to insure and lease those cars? If they give up their cars, we can award them with monthly donations for helping the business out. Let them get a taste of hardship and reality for once.

With the corrections I've suggested, we'd already have millions of dollars saved. Where do you think they'll get millions of dollars to pay expensive lawyers to fight in court with unions? Out of your pocket and my pocket. Should we pay for their mistakes? Maybe the decision-makers who know everything should pay for those costs.

This is not how it should be! If you're expecting for us to become the best in the transportation industry then treat us as the best. Your thoughtless decisions are disrupting the morale and spirit within us so please don't expect us to accept and be happy about these potential changes.

Don't feed me hotdogs and hamburgers every couple of months when you just took away my family's steak dinner.

What other choice's do we have. I don't know how long you've been with the company . We've been lied to from the time we started working for Conway and present and future employees will experience the same. Were told our hard work and commitment and dedication makes Conway successful. Doug should ask for Greg's resignation for his poor leadership.

Anonymous said...

Everyone I've talked to over the situations pertaining to the so called raise and everything after cant blaim us for considering the union. These opinions come from the lowest paid LTL drivers to the highest, these men can't believe Conway threw this 8% in our faces after saying we were only getting 2% because we can retain help and other service centers can't. These men couldn't believe Conway had the balls to tell us that, well you have pissed off most off your hard working, dedicated and commited employees.You kept on taking until you shook our cages to much, bring on the union to NRO. We're ready to have some of the benefits our competetors have, and deffently ready for some the money they make. Not the competitive wages we have been lied to about sense most of us have been employeed by Conway.

Well I have to comment on this.After reading this blog for a couple of weeks now Conway has a major problem.They have lost there way of thinking. Out with the old in with the new,only thing is the doesn't have clue of how to take care of its drivers. The 15yr plus to over 25 yr of service that are the bedrock of Conway and are treated as if they just started. What else we going to take,(vacation,pension,more costly benefits, less pay, cut incomes by cutting runs to outside carriers)we laid the foundation for this company
. It was our sacrifices, not yours. We made this company what it is today and this new regime is tearing the natural fabric of our hard and long hours of dedication which they have seemed to have forgotten. Know its our time to be a team as we will have victory to vote yes for union representation.

This blog has given many many of us EVERYWHERE in our system all the reasons we should vote the union in EVERYWHERE, can anyone except the corporate masters find a compelling reason not to vote it in, I think not, if you do than you must be someone who doesn't know what we had but have no longer, we deserve what we had, we we're promised what we had and the co.is not interested in giving it back so we must have it returned to us by whatever means is available, third party representation is now a must, our will is strong and our numbers are strong, lets do this thing now brothers, lets do this NOW!!!!!

Conway use to say that we had all the benefits the union offered and once upon a time we did, but they stripped us of everything but a paycheck. We didn't come to Conway for the name, most of us came to Conway for the benefits and the idea of a better life and a future even after we were done with our working years. That's what we signed on for, why we left other companies to come to Conway. Only to have it all takin from us without compensation, Conway has lost focus on the important things that keep this company operating. The customers and drivers keep this company going and keep the bonuses flowing into the executives pockets. It's time for a change, we need a voice and we to stand together, it's time for the union to be in Conway to represent the drivers.

Hope every Conway terminal file for union representation.. Better wages for everybody, pension, overtime after 8 hrs, free insurance etc... Now nobody has job secure in this planet....

It cost Conway 50mil+ to put cameras in the trucks. Why? So they can fire you. This money could have been used for
pensions, insurance and pay raises. This tells you how considerate they are of the employees.

Well we had the VP of operations for the Eastern region show up at NRO. He was well schooled on what to say and not to say, he didn't realize that he pissed off more drivers than he thought. He was very to the point that he didn't want us making hasty decisions. He kept telling us they were going to fix the raise problem...over and over..and over. He also made a statement saying if we didn't like how things were going that we could go elsewhere. Then our Eastern region manager made statements that the union was responsible for the downfall of YRC and others. Needless to say we all had smoke blown up our butts the last couple of days. We definitely need representation to save us from these lies and so called promises.
