Conway's Forced Generosity

Here's another bribe from Conway, this time to the mechanics. After years of asking the company for shift differential, the mechanics are finally getting it. Conway had previously denied them this as it was not something Conway did. In fact, they made it clear that the mechanics weren't an important part of the company. Now they're offering the shift differential on top of a .32 cent an hour raise. Don't be fooled, they aren't giving this out because they feel generous. They're starting to feel the union movement breath down their necks. The more terminals we organize, the more they will begin to give back in order to pacify us. Let's stand strong and remember why we are organizing. We need the shops to go Union as well! The mechanics all deserve a better future!

Yeah that shows how much the people running Conway LIE,They tried saying that Conway was going broke after they gave the .95cent to drivers and the .32cent to mechanics and they couldn't do any more .Now the union is knocking at the door and now they want to give the mechanics more.What a bunch hypocrites.But one thing is for sure when it come to upper management they sure have no problems getting a raise or bonus.We need to make it fair all across the workers.We need the union to control Conway.We should all vote YES for the UNION.

Mechanics don't fall for their lies. This wage increase is a bribe, and it is to only get to stop whats best for you and your family. Ask yourself what really matters. A few dollars per hour? But that's not all that matters to me. Pension? Better healthcare? Overtime after 8? And most importantly JOB SECURITY?..... These jerks are clearly breaking the law in every way.

Don't believe in there generosity it's only happening because they need your no vote,and then once they have it,and the union is no longer a threat they will go back treating everybody like how they've always treated us lik shit. With a union you machnics will get a huge raise,and better health care Conway machnics are under paid. If you compare your pay to the union machnics pay there making 6-7 an hour more. Yes your going to say but they pay union dues like we all been brain wash to say by the big corporations, if you really look at it its fractions compared to the returns we get with a union!! Union all the way

No this is because conway is sooooo generous. Not because of the union. Lmfao. Yeah right. The mechanics have been trying to organize to and good for them. Just remember, the fight has just begun. 2015 will be a critical year in our push for union representation. Just know that without union representation all the things Conway has given us will eventually be taken back without a binding contract. These corporate thuggs ate wolves in sheep's clothing, giving to you now in hopes you'll back off from the union. This is what the want. They can not be trusted at all no matter how nice they appear. As soon as you begin to trust, they will stab you in the back and take it all away like they did in 2008. They don't care about us at all only there profits. Do not be fooled. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Do not be fooled. Union all the way! And the Union is the only way!

Think of this...Conway is extremely profitable when there customers rates are based on fuel costs around $4 bucks+ a gallon. Every year there is an automatic rate increase for customers. That's right an automatic increase and its based on Conway paying 4 dollars a gallon for fuel. Rates for customers just went up on January 1st again for our customers, yet fuel has gone way down. Way way way way down. Conway is putting all that extra money right in there pockets. The raise we've all just got was out of that surplus, yet there crying poor mouth. They have more than enough money to give us the raise and still make a ton of money. They are all liars. There mobsters. They'll put there arm around you and kiss you on both cheeks and invite you over for dinner then when you walk in the house they'll put a bullet into your head. There mob mentality at Conway. Fight for what's yours. Don't stop the fight! Union yes

If they have move ted garcia, steve solis, hector menchaca out of the company.
The company will have not endure so many stress and spend money that the company is spending
Things will be under control now

the dark side said...

I disagreed with your comment b'cause Terminal managers like Ted Garcia are all over the place in every single terminal those attack dogs are clone by the puppet masters greg and Doug.the only way to control ted Garcia, Nicole, styers, logan and the rest of the corporate crooks is to form a union. There's no other way to control corporate greed. VOTE YES BAKERSFIELD! DON'T forget you have ulx manager's brother in Bakersfield that bigot will fire all you guys if you vote no.

I agree with the comment of Conway having Thug managers.In our shop the field manager and supervisor walk with a chip on their shoulder they love to threaten us.Its alway ill put you out of service or if you have a problem i`ll fix for you in the office or I`ll send you home with an L O I.But according to Conway they have an open door policy but whos door do you go to when nothing happens to management?and management is the problem.The hot line is a big joke try calling it they`ll laugh at you on the phone and tell you will make a note.SO GOOD LUCK GETTING ANY WHERE IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MANAGEMENT.Have a union you will see happens.So we need the UNION TO HELP OUT THE WORKERS.WE NEED TO VOTE YES.

Laredo tx said...

Also we will not create a union
The union is already here since 60 yrs ago
A group of people stop the nation closing road and business to create this
Us as drivers we have this privilege that police, teachers, doctor customs etc to chose a union and this is a right the government give us.
The company is denying this right spending the money they stole from us hiring Unión boosters
To let us believe union is not the best option
Do not believe them as them were members of the unions and are getting pension from the union.
They are only doing this to get more money, they make you believe their are your friend to have your trust.
They look at you at the eyes to make you believe this is true
But they just want to play with you.
Do not let them believe you

This is their job that is what they do. Make you believe that the union is not the best option.

Now for the profit they crate a new company that is dedicated to destroy the union.
Us can belong to the 6.7% that the union booster is saying exist.
As those are the better jobs for the employee

In Orlando we will vote February 5.

According to management this raise will be the only one for few years and that conway is not about giving money away just because the workers feel like getting a raise.So yeah dont expect any thing else for at least three years.Unless we vote the union and get a contract where we know what happens every year.WE NEED THE UNION TO STOP THIS LIARS AND GET A CONTRACT.

Don't let the companies make you think that this raise is an act of goodwill. It is the exact opposite.
They are doing this to benefit themselves. In Laredo, TX when we started with the union the company told us that they would not change anything, that they would keep on with their lean program,
creating favoritism, keep hiring contractors, and they could not gave us any kind of raise. If we did not like this we could all leave the company.
As they thought the union will never be implemented in Laredo.

For the last 10 years, the company has been making changes against drivers, taking away benefits, and the pension and the promise to duplicate the 401k thing that has not been done so far.Vacations were reduce from 45 hrs to 40 hrs per week, adding to that they have taken away a whole year of vacation from us. Sick days were reduce from 10 days to 5 days PTO. Vacations were also convert to PTO. Insurance was once free for all employees. They changed the ICP that was a great benefit and bonus to convert it to VPP. The company has also become more strict on our job duties adding cameras to the trucks so they can harass us on our driving.

I want to talk to you about the lean program. One tool that the company is using to create favoritism, however the real truth behind this program is to have faithful drivers, creating conflict between the supervisors and the other drivers in order to create division between all the employees. Some within the company choose new drivers that are not familiar with the old benefits the company had.
They program their minds to make them believe that they are part of the company or make them believe the company is theirs. The senior drivers are upset as this new lean programs drivers on the lean program perform easy jobs with more and better hours. Without respecting the seniority, the managers are ok with this and thus, this creates conflict between drivers.Employees will never be united in situations because of situations like these.
The company will use their battle soldiers in front (lean program). As their favoritism position will be in danger if the union kicks in Laredo. Don't let the company make a fool of you with the lean program as the company uses them as bait to level this movement. Drivers will be the ones being affected and they will side with the company communicating everything against us to the company. Lean program or the company has another purpose of terminating drivers with 5 year service,cutting benefits and continuing to choose new drivers that are not familiar with the old benefits.
The company thinks we are fools and offend our intelligence. They think we don't know the final purpose of all these changes. Not even the terminal managers know of this and they are also being used. Why do you think the big terminals have not put a petition yet? Those terminals have many lean program employees and they don't let the rest of the employees organize. We don't have many options. We are in a perfect moment to stop this growing cancer of conway.

Well is 5 years of Mechanical school an Education? Because I thought 5years of Mechanical school would get me a career.You in upper management who didnt get anything must like being treated like a slave or mayb your just over paid.So mayb Conway should cut your pay and give it to us.Oh yeah im sure you get a company car too.So they should take that and the credit card away.Drive your own car and use your own credit.That way we Idiots can get a better pay.I hope your reading thing Doug and Greg.This guy in upper management wants a pay cut.So start with him and go down the line on managers and go lean on them.Make sure you guys go diamon lean on all your managers.CUT CUT CUT.US FOR US IDIOTS WILL BE VOTING FOR THE UNION...
