Three southern California terminals have filed a petition with the NLRB


We are pleased to announce that three more locations have petitioned the NLRB for an election. Congratulations to southern California in joining the campaign with Laredo, TX. Laredo was the first terminal to petition now southern California join in the effort in bringing the Teamsters to Conway.
Now there are four terminals standing strong and many more to come

Hey ass kisser, I'd rather give up a lil cash than to keep on seeing suck asses like you doing nothing but kissing ass all damn day Puto. Even if my pay would stay the same I wouldn't mind as long as your kind will no longer get away with smelling fos's and firm's ass all day sorry ass. Find a new place to work if you don't like it.

CALIFORNIA VOTE YES HOW MUCH WORSER CAN WE BE THAN HOW WE ARE AND OR GOING. WITH THE VERY SIMPLE THING OF RESPECT AND THE FAVORITISM STOPPING ONCE THE UNION IS IN, IT WILL ALREADY BE WORTH IT. EVERYTHING ELSE WILL BE EXTRA. WHAT WE ASK FOR AS UNITED WORKERS THE UNION WILL MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE HEARD NOT LAUGHED AT. JUST REMEMBER THAT WE HAVE TO BE REASONABLE IN WHAT WE AGREE TO ASK FOR. I WILL INVITE THE UNION (BUSTER) TO MY HOUSE TO TRY AND CHANGE MY MIND. LOL

What? Hey would you rather pay insurance weekly or dues monthly? You don't know anything about union because you have never been part of one. Trust me it's better. I'm only at Con-Way out of necessity for my family not by choice. Dues in freight run around the neighborhood of $52 a month and company pays insurance. I pay $68 a week. It's a no brainer.

Well as a thirty year teamster I can and will support you guys all the way. A former sleeper driver at CF ,I hope you get,r done.

NOF,NTP,NMF,NWF,NPB, soon will sign up with teamsters Local 769. If you want fare wages, pension and medical benefits , given conways history of taking away our benefits to give to the wealthy stock holders in the form of cash we need to support the union. Laredo gets it and we need to as well help support the quest for fairness call your local teamsters and let get r done.

Les quiero comentar que aquí en laredo el manager dijo que los abogados de conway los obligaron a decir mentiras, osea las juntas esas de los union busters son puras mentiras , no lo comprobó nuestro manager de laredo. Así que a ganar raza. Vote yes California estamos con ustedessss

For sure . If you managers think that we are stupid and going to believe everything you say or what your buster s tell you to say, then you guys are the ones being brainwashed. We see right through you. what the union buster s tell you to tell us we have already heard and expected even before you guys even say it. But hey do your job. Just know that when you guys are barely coming we are already on our way back!!!!!! Now it is known that conway will fire people who they suspect are pro union. Like you managers say think about your future and family when you do something dirty as to target people who are simply asking for respect, the union buster will not always be there to tell you what to do!!!! Keep everything fair is what we ask. We do our research just like your lawyers and you will be amazed at what you find out. Good example some of us are neighbors, we are not so far from each other. We are all the same, if you want respect you give respect. When you target or fire somebody at work just because you think he is pro union and your boss told you to do so, then it's like the saying goes what goes around comes around in different ways! KEEP ON PUSHING UFV ULA ULX. THANK YOU LAREDO!!!!! THANKS TO THE MANAGERS FOR READING.

Hello my Conway fellow employees we need to help support those being short changed. We all are a team as drivers and we must push this agenda . We don't want to desert the people that help make this company what it is today, unlike what the management has done. United we can make this the strongest company in the industry. Treating there employees the way they have over the last 10 years has done a lot of damage, especially over the last 6 years it's a wonder how Greg still has a job with his poor leadership. They have our attention, we need the big terminals help support your hard working brothers and sisters. They deserve a fare wage and overtime over 40 hrs. Plus we need better medical benefits , retirement package as well so get involved we need to do this and now it's our time.

Drivers please be aware when your state votes, that all of your votes are confidential. Don't let union busters prevent you from voting the way you want. VOTE "YES".

AS A DRIVER FOR CONWAY FOR 17 YEARS it has being a nightmare the last 6 years working for this company no sick day compare to other carrier we are making $3.00 less on top pay, they took1week vac away, 401k suck no matching, no pension..

To all my Brothers and Sisters in So. Cal and any SIC you belong to around the country. If you are on the fence and are having mixed ideas, emotions or you don't think we need a Union/Teamsters. How much more of evidence do you need or convincing to realize what is happening. Understanding that trying to organize could be and is a scary thing. But what's even scarier than that is we have absolutely "no job security". Our days are numbered, wether you have been with Conway 2 years or 20+, you will be a statistic. We are all a number. There are employees that seem to be the favored one's, "You too shall be replaced!" I've seen employees that have been put on a high petistal only to be brought down by a write-up, verbal fights with fos´ and even walked out. Management and supervisors have been trained to talk to us with an authoritative manner and tone. They feel as if treating us like dirt will get the job done. Has it? Isn't one of our core values "Integrity"? Yet when $hit hits the fan and you try to call them on it, it's "Insubordination". Do you like the fact that at any given time Conway can walk you out for "Stealing Company Time" even though you have concrete legitimate explanations. I can't live like that anymore, Can You? Also benefits, health insurance (we are paying way too much), protecting seniority, our jobs from temps. FOMs had told us that we would be lucky if we worked 6hours in the near future. Really? Now imagine when slow season kicks in, then what? Would you like to know, when it's too late? What else do "you" need for proof? Vote yes and the Pain will stop.

There are a lot of smaller terminals which are surrounded by larger terminals, if we were to act first and call for a vote, we would be consumed by the larger ones by Conway
therefore we have to unfortunately
have to wait and see what happens with our neighbors but rest assured we silent little guys stand behind the cause
