False Guarantees

We received this letter signed by Conway big wigs. It was full of guarantees and false promises. This letter doesn't really mean anything. Should we vote the union down the company will pretend this letter never existed. Conway has the gall to call the union liars but they themselves are worse. It's time to get off the fence and take a stand! Conway has made billions off our hard work, it's time we make them share the wealth. A yes vote will give us a legally, binding contract. We will be voting in the right to negotiate working conditions, wages, health benefits, job protection, and a possible pension.
NOF employees don't let management intimidate you. We know they are breaking the law by trying to bribe us one by one, trying to threaten closures, and many more underhanded tricks. They are nothing more than thugs.

                                                             THIS IS NOT A CONTRACT
                                                             This was given at (UBF) Bakersfield, CA

These guarantees mean nothing

This was given at (NMF) Miami, FL 

The Reality of Conway's Termination Policy

711—Termination of Employment 
Policy Number: 711
I) Purpose & Scope 
To state the company's policy regarding termination of employment. This policy applies to all 
employees of Con-way Freight (CWF). 
II) Policy 
Employees are expected to conduct themselves in such a way that termination of their 
employment is neither requested nor necessitated. The term of any employment is necessarily 
indefinite and at will. Employees are free to leave at any time, for any reason or cause, with or 
without notice, just as CWF is free to terminate an employee's employment at any time, for any reason, with or without cause, and with or without notice. 






111—Personnel Policies & Procedures 
Policy Number: 111 
I) Purpose & Scope 
The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines for the preparation, revision, publication 
and distribution of personnel policies and procedures at Con-way Freight Inc. This policy applies 
to all employees of Con-way Freight Inc. (CWF). 
II) Policy 
It is the policy of CWF to develop and maintain appropriate policies and procedures (P&P's) on 
personnel administration and related topics to provide reasonable standards, uniform application, 
and general guidance for CWF management use. As such, these Personnel Policies and 
Procedures are not a contract and no employment contractual obligations on the part of Con-way 
Freight shall arise as a result of the publication of such policies and procedures. 
Neither these Personnel Policies and Procedures nor any other publication or communication by 
any management representative, either written or oral, made at the time of hire or during the 
course of employment or at the time of termination, is intended in any way to create such an 
employment contract. 
All offers of employment and all continued employment with the company are mutually 
understood to be “employment at will”. This means that CWF has the right to terminate
employment at any time for any reason, with or without notice
,
just as an employee has the right 
to terminate employment with CWF at any time for any reason. The terms and conditions of 
employment with CWF may be modified at the sole discretion of CWF, with or without cause, with 
or without notice. Examples of the types of terms and conditions of employment which are within 
the sole discretion of CWF include but are not limited to the following: promotions, demotions, 
transfers, hiring decisions, compensation, benefits, qualification, discipline, or any other term or 
condition of employment. Other than the President of CWF, no one has authority to make any 
arrangement for employment other than for employment “at will” or to make any agreement 
limiting CWF’s discretion to modify terms and conditions of employment. No implied contract 
concerning any employee related decision or term or condition of employment can be established 
by any statement, conduct, policy or practice. Only the President of CWF has authority to make 
any such arrangement or agreement or modify any such arrangement or agreement and then 
only in writing personally signed by him/her. 
Because these Personnel Policies and Procedures are unilateral rather than contractual, CWF 
retains the right to apply, modify, revise, or delete any policy or procedure as it deems necessary 
or appropriate, at any time, with or without notice. CWF also retains the right to approve or 
disprove an exception to any policy or procedure by company management with the express 
authority to do so as outlined within that specific P&P or as noted below. Nothing herein shall be 
deemed to interfere with any rights employees have under applicable state or Federal law.





                         
                                                                                                                                          
Without unions, who will fight for the working class?

JUSTICE
DIGNITY
RESPECT

On Thursday Feb. 5th the service center in Orlando,Fl known as (NOF) will have the opportunity to Vote YES to this.

Even the Preamble to the United States Constitution mentions how important every individual rights are. " We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect UNION, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare ..."

The discrimination must come to an end, for this to begin the drivers and hourly employees must have a voice to speak with out the open door to kick us out.

2015 will be a year of choices and decisions. Do we remain as slaves or set the standard for the future of all drivers at Con-way.

1. Fix the overtime for southern drivers.

2. Repair the Health Insurance problems. Don't say you can't: find the loop holes your education taught you to find, you have proven your good at it.

3. Reestablish a retirement program that works not just a few crumbs in the 401k. Think outside the box be the industry leader you claim to be. Time to step up is NOW!

No more empty promises now is the time for action! NOF make the action happen with a good strong YES VOTE!!

Union contract are counterbalances for workers.
Contract are legal agreement that that help keep employers from having unchecked and limitless power
over working conditions, wages and more.

Yeah its funny.Ive beeb telling my Coworkers that Conway has the right to fire anyone for any reason.Because they use the Employe at will card and most of my Coworkers dont even know what it means or they think the company cant just fire anyone without cause.I keep telling them when you got hired they tell you we can fire you at any time for any reason we see fit and then they make you sign a paper saying you cant sue Conway for any reason and that you waive your rights to any legal representation and most go no i didnt.I tell them wheres all the contract you sign with Conway so you can look at what you sign and the answer is i didnt get a copy of anything i signed.So their you go are you goin to go back and see what you signed.Conway doesnt like to give out anytype of paper work because that would mean there be a paper trail of all the (Con)jobs they pulled on us the slaves.

These gaurantees are worth less than the paper they are printed on! Mine as well wipe my ass with them! All of them are rights already gauranteed to us by law. The only thing that is gauranteed is that we all got a fat ass raise and a fair safety policy because of what went down in Laredo. Union ain't gonna make all are dreams come true, but it sure as hell ain't gonna make anything worse than it has been.

Guys research LEAN and see what its about and what the Goals and Outcomes of LEAN are when it is brought into the workplace. See who.profits from it. LEAN is why Lemkuhl was made president on Conway. He said so himself at our meeting at NOF a couple of months ago. LEAN makes companies higher profits by creating higher efficiency and lowering labor costs. LABOR COSTS ARE OUR WAGES AND BENEFITS!!

LEAN means that veteran drivers are to expensive to retain, and an ever changing labor force of junior less paid drivers will be more cost effective and efficient. These junior drivers will come and go as the freight dictates. This is what they call Flexibility.

Look at how the world is changing guys. Douche bags like Lemkuhl, Stotlar, Mitt Romney, and many more make their millions turn into billions by implementing programs like LEAN. They constantly pat themselves on their backs about how much money they made or make for their companies. But they never tell how they do it. They do it by eliminating good paying full time jobs with benefits and creating low paying part time jobs with no benefits.

Again thanks to Laredo! We got a real deserved raise, not some shitty 1% or 2% cost of living raise. Thanks to Laredo, I stopped hearing how Obamacare was going to make company paid health benefits impossible. Thanks to Laredo we don't have catastrophic events that get us fired even when the company forces us to use defective equipment.

In the future I hope to say that thanks to Laredo, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and the many other service centers that followed us in faith for a better future that we will never, ever, ever be LEANed out of our careers.

I would just like to point out something about the Union.

I want people to think about this.Most people think of the Union as a corporation just like Con-Way is.But the difference is that Workers are what makes a Union.Workers who stand together and fight for workers rights.Unions aren't run by a select group.The Union contract is decided by the workers for the workers.We the working people are the Union we Make the Union what it is.PEOPLE THINK ABOUT IT.

Now think about How and Who runs Con-Way..Do any of the workers at Con-Way have a say on anything that happens at Con-Way?????
As a worker at Con-Way I've been lied too,Been threaten in many way,I've been cheated out of supposedly Stuff that Con-Way offers.And when i speak out or stand up for my rights Management tells me this is my place I can run it anyway I want I don't have to give you shit.If you got problem with it there's my office ill fix the problem for you,and go head call the Ethics number I have the right to fire you right now.
Thats how Con-Way is ran...

So people which of the two would you prefer??Some control or No control where management can fire you because you'r standing for whats your right????

Greg,If your reading this take a look at the History of the Hayward shop and Ask Your self? why is it that this shop has such a high turn around in mechanics??But of course maybe thats the way you want things to be ran.Management taking care of workers.

Orlando! I'm a Michigan DSR You guys are fighting for OT after 8, and what I will tell you is if conway gives it to you they will take away your hours! That's what there doing here. They are eliminating OT by over hiring DSR'S and Dock workers most of us only get 2 or 3 hours a week. soon to be 0!! So everything your fighting for they will take back some other way. The only way to insure we get what we deserve is to vote Yes!!!

con-way earnings up 23.8% in fourth quarter 2014 versus 2013

Con-way Inc. Reports 2014 Fourth-Quarter And Full-Year Results

February 04, 2015: 04:05 PM ET


ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Con-way Inc. (NYSE:CNW) today reported 2014 fourth quarter net income of $24.9 million, or 43 cents per diluted share. The results compare to fourth quarter 2013 net income of $11.7 million, or 20 cents per diluted share.


On a non-GAAP basis, earnings per diluted share were 41 cents in the 2014 fourth quarter compared to 23 cents in last year's fourth quarter. (Non-GAAP items, which consisted of tax-related adjustments, and a previously-disclosed charge for termination of a legacy pension plan related to the former Emery Worldwide business, are detailed in the attached reconciliation.)

Operating income in the fourth quarter was $41.3 million, a 23.8 percent increase from the $33.4 million earned in the fourth quarter a year ago. Revenue for the fourth quarter was $1.44 billion, up 6.1 percent compared to $1.36 billion in the previous-year period.

Other income and expense in the 2014 fourth quarter included $5.1 million of foreign-exchange losses, which compares to a small gain from foreign-currency holdings in last year's fourth quarter. These exchange-rate impacts relate predominantly to international activities at Menlo Logistics.

Con-way recognized an income-tax benefit of $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to income-tax expense of $9.7 million in the previous-year period. Both years were affected by discrete and other tax adjustments (see the attached reconciliation). The 2014 period benefited from a decline in the incremental rate for state taxes and an alternative-fuel tax credit, which was not available during 2014 until legislation was enacted in the fourth quarter. Excluding the adjustments, the effective tax rate would have been 40.1 percent in the 2014 period, compared to 38.9 percent in 2013.

THIS SAYS IT ALL.....SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER OPERATING INCOME

“Con-way Freight achieved growth in revenue and significantly higher operating income compared to last year on the strength of its ongoing revenue management efforts bolstered by a stable demand and pricing environment,” said Douglas W. Stotlar, Con-way’s president and CEO. “The increase in operating income was constrained to some degree by higher expense for workers’ compensation, fleet maintenance and professional services.”
