President of Con-Way Freight Inc, Gregory Lehmkuhl, said today that Laredo is divorcing Con-Way by going union and threatens that they are going to be alone. He goes on to say that Con-Way makes mistakes, but they won’t make any changes and won’t make it easy for them to negotiate! You don’t want change? You won’t be negotiating? What a perfect analogy you made Mr. Lehmkuhl, to suggest Laredo is “divorcing” Con-Way. This IS an abusive relationship and we are tired of the battered wife syndrome. You abuse us and then turn around and try to placate us with food and empty promises! Here is the truth, Laredo is not alone. 3 terminals in So Ca. have filed for petition with the NRLB. And 3 more are also filing in CA, not counting Northern CA. 7 states, with different terminals, will be petitioning for change soon. Just like a battered wife, we have a mediator to advocate on our behalf. We are going to keep fighting for our rights!
