The Teamsters Haven't Left The LA area!!

Word from management is that the Teamsters have given up on Conway here in the Los Angeles area. That is a lie that the Conway want's to spread to break our spirit and make us give up hope on change. Conway will try anything and everything to stop this movement, It's not going to happen!!! Us in ULX voted YES for the the union and it's the company that is delaying this by bringing up bullshit charges just like they did in Laredo.  We really need to show our management that we will no longer put up with the fear and intimidation that they love to spread on us. We need to show our POWER! We have the POWER to change things here at Conway,  POWER, untapped and waiting to be released on them. 

The Irvine Ca terminal campaign is alive and kicking,  they just haven't pin pointed a date for the election. That only makes them a lot stronger at the end and they will prove to be successful and will beat Conway's lies and deceptions. 

A word to Conway management, YOU should fear US not the other way around. We will be successful in our fight to gain a fair contract.  Be worried Conway management, be VERY worried!!  

 Conway is in the crosshairs of a rude awakening!  Be ready brothers and stay ready!!

Sorry I dont remember if I posted this before..........

2.Con-way Inc. Reports 2014 Third-quarter Results
Con-way Inc. (NYSE:CNW) today reported 2014 third-quarter net income of $45.6 million, or 78 cents per diluted share. The results compare to third-quarter 2013 net income of $30.6 million, or 53 cents per diluted share.

On a non-GAAP basis, earnings per diluted share were 80 cents in the 2014 third quarter compared to 58 cents in last year’s third quarter. (Non-GAAP items, consisting of tax-related adjustments, are detailed in the attached reconciliation.)

Operating income in the third quarter was $91.4 million, a 35.0 percent increase from the $67.7 million earned in the third quarter a year ago. Revenue for the 2014 third quarter was $1.50 billion compared to $1.40 billion in the previous-year period.

Con-way’s third-quarter effective tax rate was 41.1 percent, compared to 42.8 percent for the same period in 2013. Both the third-quarter 2014 and 2013 rates included the effect of discrete and other tax adjustments (presented in the attached reconciliation).

Segment results in the third quarter for Con-way’s principal operations were as follows:

FREIGHT
For the third quarter of 2014, Con-way Freight reported:

◦Revenue of $946.3 million, a 5.2 percent increase from last year’s third-quarter revenue of $899.3 million. Revenue in the quarter benefited from improved yield.
◦Operating income of $71.9 million, a 39.4 percent increase from the $51.6 million earned in the year-ago period. The higher operating income was attributable to increased pricing and an improved composition of freight in the network.
◦Revenue per hundredweight, or yield, increased 5.3 percent from the previous-year third quarter. Yield excluding fuel surcharge also was up 5.3 percent.
◦Total tonnage was up 0.2 percent while tonnage per day declined 0.6 percent compared to the 2013 third quarter.
◦Operating ratio of 92.4 in the 2014 third quarter improved from 94.3 in the previous-year period.
“Our LTL company benefited from a solid rate environment supported by firm demand in the quarter,” said Douglas W. Stotlar, Con-way’s president and CEO. “Our financial performance reflected the ongoing progress of our revenue management and network optimization initiatives as we continued to strategically adjust our business mix to improve yield and create operating leverage.”

LOGISTICS
For the third quarter of 2014, Menlo Logistics reported:

◦Revenue of $443.9 million, up 16.7 percent from the prior-year third-quarter revenue of $380.5 million. The higher revenue was primarily attributable to growth in transportation-management services, and to a lesser extent, increased warehouse management revenues.
◦Net revenue of $187.9 million, an 8.7 percent increase from $172.8 million in the previous-year third quarter. Growth in warehouse management services contributed the majority of the increased net revenues, with a smaller proportion attributable to growth in transportation management services.
◦Operating income of $7.6 million, a 7.0 percent decline from last year’s third quarter operating income of $8.2 million. The current period was adversely affected by increased variable compensation expense and lower margins from warehouse management services, partially offset by improved margins from transportation management services.
“Menlo grew its revenue and net revenue as new projects won in previous quarters became operational, and current customers expanded Menlo’s scope of work,” Stotlar noted. “Despite the year-over-year decline in operating income, sequential improvements continued in 2014. This was primarily due to increased operating efficiencies at a few large warehousing accounts, as well as contract renegotiations which increased margins on a number of transportation management accounts.”

TRUCKLOAD
For the third quarter of 2014, Con-way Truckload reported:

◦Revenue of $159.2 million, a 1.8 percent decrease compared to last year’s third-quarter revenue of $162.2 million. The decline in revenue reflected the effect of lower total loaded miles partially offset by higher revenue per mile.
◦Operating income of $10.7 million, a 19.2 percent increase from the $9.0 million earned in last year’s third quarter. The higher operating income was mostly attributable to improved operating productivity per seated tractor and increased yield.
◦Empty miles of 9.6 percent, compared to 9.3 percent in the previous-year third quarter.
◦Operating ratio exclusive of fuel surcharges of 91.5, compared to 92.9 in the third quarter of 2013.
“Con-way Truckload delivered solid profit improvement in the third quarter, supported by pricing gains and increased operating productivity,” Stotlar said. “Network capacity continued to be adversely impacted by the challenging market for drivers. Our recently implemented enhancements to driver pay have helped stabilize the driver turnover rate. However, the number of unseated trucks remains elevated, which hampers our ability to fully meet the capacity needs of our customers.”

CORPORATE AND ELIMINATIONS
Corporate and Eliminations includes the company’s trailer manufacturing unit as well as other corporate activities. These activities produced operating income of $1.2 million in the 2014 third quarter compared to an operating loss of $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2013.

5.United Sugars Corporation Recognizes Con-way Truckload as Top Performer in 2014
Con-way Truckload, a full-truckload carrier and subsidiary of Con-way Inc. (NYSE:CNW), today announced it has won the Service in Excellence Award from United Sugars Corporation for 2014. It’s the seventh consecutive year the company has earned this distinction from North America’s leading marketer of industrial sugar.

“It is a privilege to partner with a company that is so customer service oriented like Con-way Truckload,” said Darla Willoughby, transportation manager of administration and carrier development at United Sugars. “Their continued superior performance and reliability in meeting our unique needs year after year is a testament to their professionalism, expedience and focus on service.”

To qualify for the award, a carrier must have shipped at least 500 loads of sugar and received no more than five customer complaints within a 12 month period. In 2014, Con-way Truckload shipped 659 loads and received no complaints. The award was presented at United Sugars’ recent carrier conference in Fargo, N.D.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by customers for the hard work and dedication of an outstanding team of professionals like the ones here at Con-way Truckload,” said Joseph Dagnese, president of Con-way Truckload. Seven consecutive years of winning this award is the ultimate acknowledgement of the team’s commitment and devotion to providing United Sugars with the best service in the industry....

This shows that drivers deserve more than just pocket change..Great job my conway brothers and sisters.

The enhancements, which will take effect on January 4, 2015, increase pay for Con-way Freight drivers system-wide while aligning all locations across the network to pay rates competitive for their geographic market. With respect to the change in progression to top scale, all locations will be aligned to a common schedule in which drivers will reach top scale at three years from date of hire. On January 4, all eligible drivers will be adjusted to the applicable new pay rate commensurate with their service time.

((((((Over the past several years, the company has been evaluating and implementing phased changes to its compensation program to reflect evolving market conditions and ensure competitive pay structures)))))))) for drivers. With a final step in this multi-year realignment process completed, the company strengthens its ongoing efforts to attract and retain quality drivers, noted Douglas W. Stotlar, president and CEO of parent company Con-way Inc. This announcement follows the announcement last month of an enhanced driver pay package at sister company Con-way Truckload, which provides nationwide dry-van full-truckload services.

“Our LTL company, along with Con-way Truckload, is facing the most pronounced driver shortage we’ve ever seen,” Stotlar noted. “Con-way Freight provides premium service, and the skill and professionalism of our drivers enables us to keep the promises we make to our customers. This action benefits our people, our customers and our shareholders, and is supported by the improved profitability and efficiencies being delivered by Con-way Freight’s 21,000 employees.”

Greg Lehmkuhl, president of Con-way Freight, noted that today’s actions complete an extensive effort to transition the company from multiple complex legacy pay structures to a streamlined, market-competitive compensation program. “We are committed to being the employer of choice for professional drivers. Our simplified pay structure enables us to more effectively align driver pay with the market-based cost of labor, and provides increased flexibility to react to market conditions over time so we can ensure our drivers’ compensation remains competitive,” said Lehmkuhl.

Statements By MR.Franklin d,Roosevelt.

Let us not be afraid to help each other—let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and Senators and Congressmen and Government officials but the voters of this country.Or Conway in our case.

-----(Year 1938)Do not let any calamity-howling executive with an income of $1,000 a day, who has been turning his employees over to the Government relief rolls in order to preserve his company’s undistributed reserves, tell you – using his stockholders’ money to pay the postage for his personal opinions — tell you that a wage of $11.00 a week is going to have a disastrous effect on all American industry..

----(Year 1936) American system now undermine that system by this attempt to coerce the votes of the wage earners of this country. It is the 1936 version of the old threat to close down the factory or the office if a particular candidate does not win. It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. Every message in a pay envelope, even if it is the truth, is a command to vote according to the will of the employer. But this propaganda is worse—it is deceit.....

WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE FOR A BETTER LIVING.VOTE YES..LETS TAKE CONTROL OF OUR DESTINY.

THIS GOES OUT TO THE ONES THAT VOTED FOR UNION AT ULA AND UFV..YOU GUYS MAY WANT TO CHECK INTO THIS....

Once the union has won the support of a majority of the bargaining unit and is certified in a workplace, it has the sole authority to negotiate the conditions of employment. ((((((((However, under the NLRA, if a minority of employees voted for a union, those employees can then form a union which represents the rights of only those members who voted for the union)))))). This minority model was once widely used, but was discarded when unions began to consistently win majority support. ((Unions are beginning to revisit))) the "members only" model of unionism because of new changes to labor law which unions view as curbing workers' ability to organize....
POWER TO YOU MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS..
