It's Time for the Reckoning

Here we go again Ladies and Gentlemen.  Don't you people get it? Conway is full of lies. They make worthless promises. They tell you one thing and then when it's all over and they say they're sorry because of the union they can’t give you anything. Conway knew that this was coming and it was long overdue. It's about time that we stand up and fight for our rights. We have a voice to fight back against this corporate monster. They want to keep us union-free so that they can keep doing what they want, when they want. They want to keep us poor and scared. To the brothers in Orlando and Bakersfield that are fighting for those rights, we stand with you!  It's is about time for the reckoning! Don't let your guard, down don't be misled and don't be deceived! Let's do this right, we only have one chance. If we fail, you can count on them trying to clean house. To all the dock workers that are being promised CDL’s, don’t believe these liars. They are lying to your face! GOOD LUCK CONWAY ORLANDO AND BAKERSFIELD! YOU GOT THIS LET'S BRING IT HOME!  VOTE YESSSSSSS!

REMEMBER THAT THERE IS NO VICTORY WITHOUT SACRIFICE.

WE CAN'T CHANGE ANYTHING UNLESS WE CHANGE IT TOGETHER.

THERE YOU GO BLOGGER, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT MOTIVATION JUST LOOK AT YOUR MGR & THINK ABOUT HIS REPLACEMENT. CON-WAY DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH DRIVERS LET ALONE QUALIFIED ONES. TRUST ME THE CONWAY DRIVING SCHOOL & THE NEW HIRES, TELL ME WHAT DO YOU THINK THE RATIO OF HOW MANY WILL MAKE THE CUT & STAY 6 MONTHS OR EVEN 1 YEAR OF BEING HIRED? BAKERSFIELD & ORLANDO KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT WHO YOU ARE, YOU ARE PROFESSIONALS & YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE TREATED THAT WAY.

LIKE THE BLOGGER SAID YOU GUYS HAVE HEARD ENOUGH ABOUT ALL THE LIES & SCARE TACTICS THAT ARE BEING USED. ..IT'S SCRIPTED & THERE SHOULD BE NO SURPRISE WHEN THEY COME TO YOUR TERMINAL WITH THEIR BROADWAY PLAY.

SO GUYS PRACTICE SHOWING NO FEAR BECAUSE WHAT YOU PRACTICE IS WHAT YOU BELIEVE. ...AND WE ALL BELIEVE CON-WAY IS A GREEDY, LYING, THUG RUNNING CORPORATION.

THE MAFIA MUST BE SLAUGHTERED, BELIEVE IT & YOU WILL ACHIEVE IT!

HELL YES UNION 2015 !!!!!

A Teamsters goal is to make Conway the BEST freight company in the business AND to be recognized and compensated for our hard work. My goal is NOT to destroy this company. The hatred and animosity will turn hard working men and women away from our mission. Our mission is simple; so, let's not complicate it by talking about revenge and pay back. This is not a campaign AGAINST the company. It is a fight for our rights and the respect and dignity we deserve. A positive attitude will get us all the YES votes we need to take control of our own destiny.

To all those people on thinking on voting No. Just look at LLA, ULX, NMF they all still have jobs they still are all working and now getting better treatment, and the Union will now get them a Contract!! Those people who voted No are regretting it, and thankfull for those who voted yes! Conway is going to do nothing to you for voting yes! There all talk no action. There more afraid than you are! They are Not going to close terminals or lay people off or go out of business! There is wat too much freight , and a shortage of drivers to do any of that! Also the union will see that you are working and getting what you deserve. That is why you pay union dues and why Union workers are much better off. Get the Facts before you Vote! This company can not and will not do anything to you for Voting Yes! They are Weak the CEO is Weak, and the management is Weak!! The more they threaten you, The more they bribe you! The more Afraid and Weak they become! They have done Nothing to the Terminals who voted Yes, and they won't !! Just Vote Yes! Don't be Bullied by a Weaker person! Just Vote Yes!!!

That's right management and lean members think that they own the company and that they have the right to do whatever they want to do and disrespect any driver that does not agree with them and they forget that they are just employees as we are and that they are not better than us,but think they own the company.

Who's life are u living... your's well what do u want in the end. To be able to relax and enjoy what's left of your life after working 20 years. Well u won't have anything here. Unless we go union. Then u can have a pension. This use to be a good company that cared about there employees. Before we had no reason to want to go union but they've took that away. They talk about they've funded the pension. What fucken pension the one they froze. Look we have to realize what do we want out of our lives. This is our company we deliver the freight. We are the one's who service the customers. What do they do but collect massive paychecks and huge bonuses. One of there bonuses can be enough to fund an employee for 20 years. Think about 50k a year times 20 years is 1,000,000. That's what they make. They don't need a pension. They just work five years and they can retire. US we work 20 years and nothing. They can afford high cost insurance we cant. UNION ALL THE WAY. Talk to your fellow coworkers and ask them what they want. If they don't want a union company then quit cause we are coming

Anonymous said...

I heard from a supervisor that quit already. He said a couple years ago they had a meeting to fire 3to5 20 year plus employees to show everyone else that they can be fired. They saved over 250k per barn by firing those employees vacation pay and benefits. Think about was anyone forced to retire or fired for something petty. Well that's conway for you. What makes u think they care. They dont. By saving that money they got bigger bonuses

When it comes to a victory or loss you should not bash everyone from that location. You are showing your true colors and that means you never cared from the beginning. Support one another or stay off this blog with your negative remarks. You know who you are and so do we. Shut the hell up now. Someone had to win and someone had to lose, if it was us winning we would of done the same thing as them.

This is what Greg thinks of us.He posted this a Few Months Back.

why would a company pay someone after they retire? That doesn't even make good business sense. Be a man. Be smart. Invest and save. But you have these sorry ass lazy kids at work that cry about everything. You will never have a pension and the union knows Conway will not give into that. Lupe wins!

His right,Conway will WIN and So will the Union Busters.As for being smart..Well you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink it..

I'm wondering How's it going in the locations that Voted No?Are things better or are they the same?



Anonymous said...

I don't want to be negative with this,so if this seems that way I am truly sorry! It has come to my attention that in Orlando we have had several supervisors tell our employees that if the UNION is voted in that they would quit. Well I can not see why they would act like that would hurt us. They would be the ones without a job. I do know supervisors come and go,will miss them and wish them well. Just think it might be a blessing we have a good chance of there replacements will be better for us. Change can be for good and not Evil. Thanks for your ear,concerned NOF driver.

Laredo Teamster said...

Ja Ja ln Laredo TX heard the same things that some drivers and supervisors would quit but there still there the only things the rats do is feed the manager what there hear in exchange they get new knee pads so when there sucking up to the supervisor they don't need the union because they have there own job security sucking up and getting new knee pads every week

Anonymous said...

Some of the drivers that have joined lean program in Laredo, TX. Said the same that if the Union won they will quit, but I don't see them quit yet and we already won. They are just a bunch of cock suckers because they have lean position and feel threatened that once the Union kicks in they are going to have to respect seniority and work like the rest of us. And the supervisors will also have to respect every driver and dockworker seniority or they will get in trouble. Not like now that they can do whatever they want to do without been held responsible for their actions. Because Hr and management a big joke they know what's going on, but fail to do anything about it. They all cover themselves with the same blanket.

The pros of belonging to a union
Better wages. The median weekly income of full-time wage and salary workers who were union members in 2010 was $917, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. For nonunion workers, it was $717.

More access to benefits. Some 93 percent of unionized workers were entitled to medical benefits compared to 69 percent of their nonunion peers, according to the National Compensation Survey published last year by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The survey represented about 101 million private industry workers and 19 million state and local government employees.


Unmarried domestic partners -- same sex and opposite sex -- also had access more often to these benefits if they were unionized. Workers with union representation also had 89 percent of their health insurance premiums paid by their employer for single coverage and 82 percent for family coverage. For nonunion workers, the comparable numbers were 79 percent and 66 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And 93 percent of unionized workers have access to retirement benefits through employers compared to 64 percent of their nonunion counterparts.

Job security. Nonunion employees are typically hired "at will," meaning they can be fired for no reason. There are exceptions. Employers can't terminate a worker for discriminatory reasons such as race, religion, age and the like. Nor can they fire an at-will employee for being a whistleblower and certain other reasons.

However, workers with union jobs can only be terminated for "just cause," and the misconduct must be serious enough to merit such action. Before an employee can actually be fired, he or she can go through a grievance procedure, and if necessary, arbitration.

"If I know I can't be easily fired, I can speak up more freely," says Monica Bielski Boris, assistant professor of labor and employment relations at the University of Illinois.

Strength in numbers. Unionized workers have more power as a cohesive group than by acting individually. "What you gain is the muscle of collective action," says Hoyt Wheeler, a professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina who is now a labor arbitrator. Through collective bargaining, workers negotiate wages, health and safety issues, benefits, and working conditions with management via their union.

Seniority. Rules differ among collective bargaining agreements, but in the event of layoffs, employers usually are required to dismiss the most recent hires first and those with the most seniority last -- sometimes called "last hired, first fired."

In some cases, a worker with a union job who has more seniority may receive preference for an open job. Seniority also can be a factor in determining who gets a promotion. The idea is that seniority eliminates favoritism in the workplace.

"The chief advantage of seniority is it is objective," Wheeler says.

those 10 that voted no it's drivers like that at each barn that impowers this fucking evil management we have at Conway!! We have to turn the table on these mother fuckers we have to be more vocal, we have to talk openly at our work locations about how good Union is if we truly want a union we have to drowned out the no vote by being louder then they are that's the only way we can win this we have to be louder then they are. It starts by getting your local media involved start calling the media asking were are they on this big story why haven't they been reporting on it

Anonymous said...

If its true about the manager being fired at UBF, That explains why the managers at my Barn were saying business as usual.Whether he did or didn't get fired Conway wins.If he did wont matter because Greg will just hire some one just like Cotter and workers cant do anything about it,If he didn't get fired it wont matter because it'll be business as usual and he workers cant do anything about.Its a win win for Greg.
As for being negative.I wasn't being negative I was stating a fact about my location.AND trust me when i get the chance to Vote for the union and support my Coworkers and all working Class.Ill be the first one in line.Just like when we had our union meetings I was one of the first ones to show up and set up chairs and passed around information of what having a Union can do for us.But i cant make the people drink the water.So if you know who I am then you'll be seeing me at the voting poll VOTING A BIG YES to the UNION.UNION POWER TO ALL WORKERS.

If future petitioners don't EDUCATE themselves about union issues, how will you ever know whose lying and who is telling the truth. Conway is bound by law to negotiate in good faith with union representatives. Conway cannot fire you for union activity, as long as it's not on their clock. They cannot close a facility down for union activity. Why don't you guys read this stuff BEFORE you file a petition? Union busters lie. It's their job to scare the shit out of you. And they do a very good job, as we can all see. Get a firm solid majority of 80% or more before you file because the union busters will turn at least 15%. We are acting like the stupid bastards that they think we are. STOP BEING AFRAID AND STAND FOR SOMETHING! The founders of the union movement had a sense of shared sacrifice and incredible courage. Unions are why we have weekends off, fair compensation and a voice in the way we are treated. Unions sent our children to school instead of having them work beside us in the factories , coal mines and manufacturing plants. If you don't find the courage to stand for something, you will fall for anything.

Isn't it true that if a strike at a service center will only have them move the freight to another location? Conway has many locations close to each other, they did that years ago for that reason. What could stop them from doing that. Isn't that why they say business as usual when we bring up a strike?

Anonymous said...

PLEASE!! UBF If any of you have a copy of Numbskull's letter than post it on here for all to see. Also for Numbskull to say that he will never sign a contract with Miami and bargain from the bottom is illegal! You 8 yes votes need to have your local file charges with NLRB, and testify that you were intimidated. Don't give up hope! This movement is far from over! This is more than a battle this is fucking war! We got that fat puss-filled sack of shit Lupe Cruz here in Orlando saying the same shit Numbskull said to you. Some guys are getting scared, but it is our job to teach them the Truth. We are gonna stoke the fire in this Union train and on election day this raging locomotive is gonna smash the shit out of Cruz and Numbskull. We are tired of being bullied! The best way to stop a bully is to punch that fucker hard as you can right square in the mouth! Knock his fucking teeth out! How do we do this to Cruz and Numbskull? Vote Yes that's how. UBF and the other terminals that lost. We will see you again in a years time. You will see that nothing will change where you are. Don't be fooled we won't need to ever strike. Once we have Union protection if that COCKSUKER Numbskull slow walks our contract, then we will slow walk his fucking freight. Orlando not backing down. Teamsters coming in.

Nobody was intimidated or force to vote yes at laredo,downtown,la or Miami those are lies being use by the Union busters lupe Cruz and numbskull. There was no vandalism or rock throwing at any of the terminals that voted yes. Ask those fuck'n liars if there were any vandalism at terminals that voted no.

LAREDO DRIVER said...

Statement made above states unions do not lay off workers CEO's do, explain more on this please so we all have a clear understanding. As long as I have been in the trucking business I have never seen a CEO close down a company. That doesn't make sense. Don't get me wrong, I'm just curious as to how that works? We all need to post facts so we can back those facts up. Thank you

The CEO is responsible for the success or failure of the company. Operations, marketing, strategy, financing, creation of company culture, human resources, hiring, firing, compliance with safety regulations, sales, PR, etc.—it all falls on the CEO’s shoulders.

AMEN BLOGGER, YOU GET A FIST PUNCH ON THAT. THE BLOGGER THAT CHALLENGE YOU ABOUT NEVER SEEING A CEO CLOSE DOWN A COMPANY.....IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME, JUST LOOK AT THE COMPANIES THAT ARE LAYING OFF, DOWN SIZING JUST SO THEY CAN HIRE CHEAPER HELP/OUT SOURCE EVERY JOB THAT THEY CAN TO SAVE A BUCK FIFTY. CEO'S MAKES ALL THESE DECISIONS WHICH IN THE LONG RUN HURTS AMERICANS & THE AMERICAN ECONOMY WHICH PUT AMERICANS OUT OF WORK. SO IF YOU LOOK AROUND EVEN IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD THE SMALL BUSINESSES, THE MOM & POP BUSINESS CAN'T SURVIVE THE WAL-MART & THE TARGETS THAY HAVE TAKEN OVER. CEO'S PAY A HIGH PRICE TO KILL THEIR COMPETITION & WHO PAYS IN THE END FOR ALL THESE GREAT IDEAS YOU & I, AND WE COME TO WORK EVERYDAY HOPING THAT WE DON'T GET THE AXE. GREEDY, THUGS, & THEIVES CEO'S MAKES BAD DECISIONS THAT WILL EFFECT YOU & I IN THE END.

I JUST EXPANDED THE THOUGHT A LITTLE FURTHER FROM THE LAST BLOGGER. PEOPLE YOU BETTER START THINKING & DROP THAT SCARED MENTALITY ACT.

WE NEED TO REALLY SIT DOWN & THINK ABOUT LIFE, WORK & FAMILY...BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY IF CON-WAY COULD GET AWAY WITH RUNNING THIS MAFIA HOUSE OF HELL WITH ALL TEMPS ( DSR'S, CSR'S, & EVERYONE ELSE IN BETWEEN) TRUST ME THEY WOULD DO IN A BLINK OF A EYE & THEY ARE PROBABLY WORKING WITH THAT IDEA NOW......CAN WE MAKE IT WORK WITH TEMPS & CONTRACT DRIVERS. THEN I THINK I HEAR NUMBSKULL SAYING RIGHT NOW, HOW MUCH MONEY THEY COULD SAVE BY NOT PAYING FOR THESE SORRY ASS BENEFITS THEY GIVE US NOW. SO THERE'S YOUR LOYALTY, CON-WAY WOULD PUT ALL OUR ASSES OUT ON THE STREETS AND PIMP RUN THIS MAFIA WHORE HOUSE WITH TEMPS.

FOR THE ONES READING THIS & SAYING THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN. .YOU BETTER THINK AGAIN!

FOR ALL THE ONES WHO HAVE VOTED NO TO UNION, YES THAT WAS YOUR CHOICE, & YOU COULD HAVE BACK YOUR BROTHERS UP WHO VOTED YES....YES TO FUTURE JOB SECURITY. ...THINK ABOUT THAT WHEN YOU SEE CON-WAY START CONTRACTING JOBS OUT ONE BY ONE.......

THINK & ACT FOR YES TO UNION 2015.

BELIEVING CON-WAY LIES & BEING SCARED IS NOT AN OPTION GOING FORWARD. C'MON ORLANDO SHOW US WHAT YOU GOT BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN YOU!!!!!! THE REST OF CON-WAY TERMINALS WE NEED MORE FILING OF PETITIONS, GET WITH THE PROGRAM BEFORE YOUR JOB GETS REPLACED BY TEMPS......

I hope those drivers in NOF realize what is about to change, being in a right to work state. Conway can and will fire anybody for any reason when they have a chance to do so. If you read their policies you don't have a chance if they want you gone and could be any driver in any barn. With a union you have a voice on your side. Lets face it nobody's perfect. You should protect your rights and even if you don't like the unions they might be your ace in the hole. So in short think of you and your family's future. We can have prosperity if we all work together. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
