Union Busters set Camp

                                                            
Okay brothers… the war has started! Union busters are setting up their headquarters at ULX. Prepare yourself, take notes and write down everything they say. Lie and fear tactics are the weapons they will use to discourage you.  Keep checking this blog; we will be posting every lie here
Union busting is a multi-million dollar industry to take away your rights, they also call themselves “union avoidance”   their goal is to take away the chance to vote for union representation. They will be holding captive meetings, forcing employees into one on one meeting with supervisors. This union busters and Conway management will break the law using fear and coercion to discourage you from voting "YES" to form a union.

I would agree. that is all they do to us. We were told the cameras were only for accidents. Yeah, right!!!! We were told that the flex board was one thing and it's not. We have people with way less seniority that have better start times than guys that have been their 20 years. What a crock of shit. Should I go on???? Let them that have destroyed the company and moral live in fear for awhile.

Conway could have spent millions on giving drivers better pay instead they would rather spend millions on lawyers and union busters. And the reason is they communicate well together with there corrupt way of bribery. They teach management to tells us Im just doing my job the same thing the Nazis said when Adolph Hitler ordered the slaughter of millions of innocent Jews. It doesn't matter if you work at McDonalds or Conway its time for Americans to stand up and teach our children whats rite. Americans of all, need to quit screwing each other such as waiting for your neighbor to forclose on everything he or she sweat blood and tears for just to buy at half or less what they paid for it. Lets show Conway its not just about money but the way were treated. Keep the movement alive brothers and sisters.

We had a so called town hall meeting today at NTP with a few top dogs trying to explain why drivers are here in the south are not as important. Admitting the cost of living is greater down here then most and country and it is also the easiest to replace drivers with northern transfers. Most of us at NTP NMF NPB NOF are tired of being told take it or move on. Its time to have a voice with the UNION to help us be heard.

Union avoidance people are making 325.00 to 350.00 (on a discounted price) to sway you away from our issues. The union organizer told us to look at the companies LM-20 and the union busters LM-10 reports and tell us what they are really paid. Those union buster sign a agreement with Conway, why can't we have a agreement with Conway?
Remember what has us here! Remember that those bozos are not Conway employees and are not going to be here after the election. They will lie to us, they will say that the union is bad for us, and they will bring up that our FAMILIES will suffer with a union!! Our families will prosper and so will we if we have protections and a contract that the company has to follow. VOTE UNION YES!

La compañía es una mentirosa, juega sucio y la única manera de defenderse es con mentiras, supervisores y managers que ocupa no tienen ni la menor idea de lo que es la unión, nunca han sido choferes y no conocen nuestra realidad, además Conway ocupa FOS a lo pendejo, debería ser más selectivo al ocupar a los managment, los ocupa a lo tonto y no saben nada de su trabajo, mucho menos de la unión como para dar un consejo de que si nos conviene o no!! Así que no les hagan caso a esos pendejos. No saben perder e inventan y fabrican mentiras, imaginensenn si son capaces de Levanter mentiras contra la NLB que pueden hacer contra nosotros, Conway es un mounstro que ya no tiene integridad ya no podemos creerles porque ahorita te aumentan y mañana te lo quitan, ellos juegan con los números y al final no se ve el aumento con la subida se aseguranza, todos armárse de valor y votar por la unión, ya no existe salida, no hay marcha atrás.. Conway ya no dice la verdad y nada más quiere chingarnos, se ha vuelto muy egoísta y avaricioso, el poder y el dinero los cegó. No existe realmente un recurso humano a favor de nosotros

I cant read Spanish....

Well I guess since it's in Spanish and you don't know how to interpret the message it was not intended for to read.

Anonymous said...

It states that managers and supervisors suck ass. They are all only out for their self. Conway is only out for their self . Supervisors don't know how to drive trucks neither know how to supervise. Conway will throw money at you now but take it in another way later. Basically saying vote union if you have sense and want a life for you and your family.

Its intended for the southern states where we speak more Spanish than English. The majority of our customers are Spanish speakers only. It's ok we're all in this together.

Anonymous said...

Well Connecticut checking in watching from the side lines. When given the chance, guys here saying lets go. And for all the same reasons job security, benefits and some type of pension. I really don't that is to much to ask for. If I am gonna be loyal to you with years of service why not throw the guys on the front lines a bone!

After listening to all the lies spoken in the town hall meeting in NKX. I don't think they could have helped the union movement more if they had tried. They are their own worst enemy. I have never worked for a union truck company before but after the total disregard of respect shown in the meeting, I believe it's time. I guess they thought they were talking to a bunch of uneducated dumb asses. If the vote ever makes it to our doorstep......well my vote is yes

IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH CARE. MY WIFE IS IN NEED OF AN MRI AND CIGNA DENIED IT. SHE SPOKE DIRECTLY TO CIGNA AND THEY INFORMED HER THEY COULD NOT APPROVE IT FOR THE REASON THAT THE DR HAS TO TRY OTHER OPTIONS BEFORE ORDERING THE MRI.THEY SAID FIRST DR HAS TO DO AN X-RAY WHEN THE DR SAID AN X-RAY WILL NOT TELL HIM ANYTHING. THE LESS THE INSURANCE HAS TO PAY IS WHAT MATTERS TO THEM (CIGNA).IT ALWAYS COMES TO THIS WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING MRI'S OR CT SCANS DONE THROUGH CIGNA. IS THIS THE F....

THESE "UNION BUSTERS" TELL MANAGEMENT WHAT TO DO.

Following is a checklist of tactics "union busters" use to try to defeat union campaigns. Use this guide to prepare yourself and your colleagues for what will happen. Keep track by checking off each tactic your Employer and/or its Human Resource Personnel attempt to use to try to DEFEAT YOU !

PRESSURE FROM SUPERVISORS:

Supervisors will be front-line troops against the union delivering letters, informal chats and speeches prepared by the "Union Busters."

LETTERS, LEAFLETS, MEMOS AND MORE MEMOS:

The "Union Busters" will write you many letters and hand out lots of leaflets during the union organizing campaign... only the letters will be signed by upper management, or the Human Resource Personnel - not the Union Busting consultants.

INCREASES IN PAY:

They may tell you, you don’t need a Union to get wage increases, and they were about to increase your pay just prior to the start of the organizing campaign. They may even tell you now that the Union is here they can’t by law give you a raise but would like to give you a dollar raise. DON’T BE FOOLED.

Anonymous said...

LOVE LETTERS:

In some of the letters, the "union busting" consultants will have management say how much they really appreciate what all of you do for the organization. They might even admit mistakes! They want to convince you that the "boss" is really a good person who can be trusted with your future.

THE UGLY UNION LETTERS:

Most of the letters will paint a pretty ugly picture of the union. Management will want you to think the union is just out for money. They will even refer to the union as a "Third Party." The FACT is, the workers ARE the union - they form the collective voice. The officers will elect their own representatives and will decide what issues they wish to promote and negotiate.

LOVE OFFERINGS:

The "Union Busters" will tell management to give you some unexpected perks (i.e. bonuses, paid lunches, parties, etc...) They want you to believe you don't need a union to get good things and improve security.

LET'S BE PALS:

Management and their RATS will be everywhere. Walking the floors - on every shift. Setting up spur-of-the-moment chats so he/she can find out what's on your mind. "Don't' let a 3rd party come between our wonderful relationship!" BEWARE !

ONE-ON-ONES:

Your supervisors or the Human Resource Department may call you in for face-to-face talks about the union. You have no choice if they insist, however, you do have the right to ask a fellow employee to sit in with you. Also, you do NOT have to divulge your interest in the Union. The supervisor or the Human Resource Department has been told what to say by the "union buster consultants."

Anonymous said...

DIVIDE AND CONQUER:

They will try to play one group against the other: "Disloyal" union supporters against "loyal pro-employer" union opponents; men vs. women, older vs. younger, day shift vs. night shift, one department against another - whatever works for them.

"VOTE-NO" COMMITTEE:

A small group of employees might be set up to "stand up" for the employer. They want to "save" the organization from the Union. The "Union Buster" is behind this committee and is training the leaders to destroy the union organizing efforts.

CAPTIVE AUDIENCE MEETINGS:

Employees might be required, on paid time, to attend meetings where top management will deliver a speech. It is not an open debate. Remember Don’t be Fooled by Union-Busting Propaganda.

SCARE TACTICS

Management’s biggest weapon is Fear. In the Security Industry beware of threats of Outsourcing your Job Tactics. This is common in every Union Campaign. Remember - presently you are a, AT-WILL – EMPLOYEE with No Rights, No Voice or No Job Security.

You can be FIRED or Replaced by management at anytime ! Don’t be Fooled ! Only by Unionizing, can You Legally Protect you JOB !

U are the UNION and If U want a VOICE to Negotiate Your Wages, Benefits, Job Security and Working Conditions U must Stand Up and Be Heard !

Remember: 99.9 % of union Do NOT charge Initiation Fees as management would like you to believe. Nor do they charge any monthly dues (which union members call Job Security) until the union negotiates on your behalf your written contract and the majority of officers of VOTE to accept its terms and conditions.

In reality no security professional would vote to accept the union contract if they were to receive less. This result is a WIN WIN situation for every security officer professional to gain the wages and benefits you deserve!

What can I do about the union buster's tactics?

Remember, the union buster plays off of an employee's lack of knowledge about a union. Employees can do several things to counter the union buster:

Anonymous said...

Ask the Company if they have hired a union buster - Ask the employer's representative whether they have hired a "consultant" to work for them to "educate" employees about the union. Ask the employer how much they are paying the consultant. Employers don't want you to know that they have hired someone to interfere with your rights to organize a union, and you will make them nervous if they have to answer this question. Most union busters charge anywhere from $750 to $2,000 per day plus expenses for their services.

Document - Have as many employees as possible document everything that a supervisor or manager says to employees, whether to a group of employees or an individual employee. A union buster will oft times violate the law in what he says about the union.

Ask Questions - If a supervisor makes an implied threat, ask the supervisor or manager point blank what he or she is trying to say. The employer cannot legally make direct threats to employees about union organization.

Ask for the information the union buster presents in writing - Remember, the general, vague information that supervisors and managers are giving you comes directly from the union buster. Ask management for the information that they are presenting to you in writing.

Protect and support each other - If a supervisor is shadowing an employee, band together for support. A union buster can only be effective in creating fear if the employees let him. If employees stand up to the union buster, he cannot be effective.

Ask the Union - If you have questions about what the union buster is having management say, contact the union for answers.

You can beat a union buster at his own game by sticking together!

I work at XKC, & I know we have a Union Buster amongst us. Talked to the Rat for a second. Union Buster through, & through. Night time 'dock worker'. Knows his stuff well, to well. After talking to him, I could tell he was well educated, & I was trying to figure out why he was a dock worker. Even after he told me his past.

In December of 2012 one of the drivers here in Laredo Texas found a driver 5 dock workers 1 W.1 inspector and 2 supervisors were stealing merchandise. He reported it to the manager Ted Garcia and he didn't do anything about it. One of the dock workers informed the regional manager Greg Woods and he also didn't do anything about it. Actually, he did do something he cut the hours of the dock worker who reported it so he had to quit his job due to the hour shortage. As for the supervisors they gave them a prize Myrna Delgado is now FOM.
Joe Carrillo is manager of Bryan Texas. Ruben Zaragoza was FOM here in Laredo when a Mexican transfer dropped a trailer while it was being hooked in our yard. After that he was promoted to safety manager of the South Texas Region.
Ted Garcia, Greg woods, Myrna Delgado, Joe Carrillo, Steve Solis continue to be the same mafia as always. Not to mention sexual harassment and they didn't do anything about it. Like always it stayed here in Laredo.
