The Latest On ULA and ULX

ULA has a NLRB hearing scheduled for Feb 17th at the NLRB offices in downtown LA. The union has multiple charges against the Conway and are looking to get the election over turned and possibly have another election. Or who knows we might take the high road and walk out for a few days to show Conway who really runs this company.

As for ULX, the company is holding back the certification of our election. Once the NLRB forces Conway to certify us then we could move forward and start talking about negotiating our contract.
We have to make something clear, CONWAY IS HOLDING US BACK FROM NEGOTIATING A CONTRACT! We need to stand as the UNION at our yard so that management stops playing games with our future. We voted yes and we should start acting like a UNION!!!

I WILL BE PRAYING FOR ALL YOU GUYS. AS THE OLD FOLKS SAY EVERYTHING & EVERYONE HAS A DUE SEASON IN THIS LIFE. I KNOW CON-WAY FEELS THEY ARE IN CONTROL OF EVERY SITUATION 100% ALL THE TIME BUT TO EVERYONE THERE'S LIMITS & BOUNDARIES THAT EVEN CON-WAY HAS TO ANSWER TO. CAN CON-WAY KEEP THIS TYRANNY UP? BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY WHETHER TERMINALS VOTE UNION IN OR OUT IT'S COSTING CONWAY BIG $$$$$. TRUST ME DEEP POCKETS WILL BECOME SHALLOW EVENTUALLY AND WALL STREET & INVESTORS WILL MOVE ON, AS GREG NUMBSKULL & HIS POSSE REFUSE TO USE COMMON SENSE.

PEOPLE KEEP THE PETITIONS COMING AS NUMBSKULL CONTINUE TO MAKE WRONG DECISIONS. THE COMPETITORS ARE WAITING BECAUSE THEY KNOW IT WON'T BE LONG AS THE CUSTOMERS FLOCK TO THEM. THESE COMPETITORS KNOW THAT LEAN IS THE BEGINNING TO THE END.

KEEP THE PETITIONS COMING Y'ALL, DON'T GET DISCOURAGE BECAUSE EVERYONE & EVERYTHING HAS A DUE SEASON SO DON'T GIVE UP & DON'T BE SCARED. ...GOD IS IN CONTROL. .. .UNION 2015

I wish you would explain to the nlrb how they bribed the driver's with the raise and other stuff .

Vvp, lean&vvt all a joke to employees waving the carrot over our heads and we as employee s fall for it every time

ULX TEAMSTER said...

We are Teamsters here at ULX it's time to demand our certification we are tired of all the bullshit so I tell the new big wig for the Orange Region cut the crap and certify us and you need to clean house at ULX it's time for new management team

moe Jones said...

Giving employees a pay raise in the middle of a organizing campaign is a bribe how herd will that be to explain not only that how about changing safety policies. I guess it needs a little bit of thinking for that.

You right excon-wait and see. Nof what's coming your way ,MANDINGO 12. INCHES, ENJOY

Nothing going on at ULX due to the lack of leadership. No one has the courage to move the certification along. No one brave enough to challenge the management. All the talk is going on here. It should be going on at the terminal.

Buffalo Driver here...
Guys remember **WE ARE ALL TEAMSTERS** this is a company wide group effort..instead of flaming terminals that loose or TEMPORARILY back out, we need to support our brothers and sisters.

There are valid reasons why NOF pulled the petition, it was the right decision, and instead of having to wait 12 months to refile now its only 6 months to get their ducks in a row.

TOGETHER we can and will win this, but as of yet we are just playing right into Ann Arbors hands by fighting amongst ourselves, calling names and finger pointing every time there is a ripple in the water.

Please for the sake of all our futures we need to stand together and fight as a SINGLE UNIT, not 300 separate units.

UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE GROVEL!!

mo Jones said...

Right on brother!

FYI some of the blogs on here are Conway thugs! Don't take the negative stuff serious. There only trying to divide us. Stay strong be patient stay United!!

Anonymous said...

I AGREE WE ARE STRONGER WHEN WE'RE UNITED. AS FOR ANN ARBOR THEY ARE PLAYING THEMSELVES ALONG WITH GREG NUMBSKULL. GREG IS ONLY GOING TO BE THERE TWO MORE YEARS IF HE'S LUCKY, THEN THEY WILL PUT ANOTHER NUT IN THERE & THESE STUPID ANN ARBOR FUCKS ALONG WITH THE YES SIR TOY MANAGERS HAVEN'T THOUGHT ABOUT HOW THEY WILL BE REPLACE WHEN NUMBSKULL REGIME ENDS. SO LET'S STAY STRONG AS IF WE ARE WINNING EVERY TERMINAL BECAUSE WE WILL IF WE KEEP IT TOGETHER. I KNOW IT'S A LITTLE DISCOURAGING NOW BUT WE NEED TO FOCUS. THIS ISN'T JUST A DSR ISSUE. THE CSR'S ARE BEING TREATED UNFAIR. WE THE DSR'S RECEIVED OUR TOKEN RAISE (WE WON'T GET ANOTHER FOR 3-4 YEARS), THE CSR'S RECEIVED NOTHING. DOUG NUMBSKULL WON'T EVEN TALK ABOUT GIVING THE CSR'S A RAISE. THEIR MAIN GOAL WAS TO GET THE DSR'S A RAISE SO WE WOULD SHUT THE FUCK UP & DROP THIS UNION TRAIN. SO GUYS WE NEED TO WORK TOGETHER AND GET THIS UNION TRAIN GOING AGAIN BECAUSE WE NEED TO HELP OUR CSR'S TO GET THEIR RAISE ALSO.

UNION FOR CON-WAY BECAUSE IT'S THE ONLY WAY FOR EVERY EMPLOYEE TO GET FAIR REPRESENTATION.

so who its next to throw the petition? WHO HAS THE BALLS just asking

Anonymous said...

Let's be honest guys most of the drivers for Conway are republicans and I gurantee u they will not vote for a union even though it's in their interesting to do so. Look at today's repuplicans even in politics they vote against their interest and the reason is that anything that can help minorities they will vote against it. And that's the truth 

Anonymous said...

I'm conservative and I think UNION is the only way to go. Same goes for Liberals. Some are so open minded that their brains have fallen out. We need to be focused on the goal of company wide Unionization and come together as drivers and leave politics out of it.

WHO'S NEXT TO PETITION? LEAN IS GETTING A NEW LEADER & THE OLD ONE IS NOW THE REGIONAL DIRECTOR FOR NAT, NNC, & FEW OTHER TERMINALS. HE'S NEVER BEEN A TERMINAL MGR IN HIS LIFE, HE'S 31 YRS OF AGE BUT HE'S BEEN GROOMED BY ANN ARBOR MEANING NUMBSKULL & THE REST OF THE FOOLS. SETH MCGOWAN IS LEAVING LEAN & COMING TO THE SOUTH.....

SO PEOPLE YOU CAN SIT AROUND WITH YOUR $2 RAISE UNDER YOUR NEW REGIONAL MGR BECAUSE HE'S YOUNG & HE'S READY TO CONTINUE THE SCHOOL OF LEAN...... WAKE UP PEOPLE, GET OFF THE FENCE IF EVER THERE'S ANY REASON TO VOTE FOR UNION IT'S NOW.

REMEMBER OUTSOURCING. .....LEAN WILL CONTINUE, DSR'S & CSR'S ......OUTSOURCED.

Anonymous said...

SOUNDS LIKE CON-WAY IS GETTING THEIR NEW AMMO IN PLACE. THIS VALIDATES A BLOG FROM LAST YEAR WHEN A SUPERVISOR REVEALED THE STRATEGY CON-WAY WAS GOING & THAT IS TO REPLACE 900 DRIVERS BY USING THE LEAN CONCEPT. SO NOW THEY ARE PUTTING THESE LEAN CATS IN THESE HIGH PROFILE POSITION TO CARRY IT OUT. IF YOU'RE READY TO HAVE A FOOT SHOVED UP YOUR ASS TO KICK YOU OUT ON THE STREETS INTO THE UNEMPLOYMENT LINE PUT A YOUNG BRIGHT LEAN PERSON IN CHARGE WITH NO OPERATIONS EXPERIENCE. THIS GUY HAS MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCE BUT NO OPERATIONS EXPERIENCE. .....

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO FIGURE OUT HOW FAST THE REST OF THE OUTSOURCING IS GOING TO GO. THIS IS FOR ALL THE LOYAL PEOPLE GOING MOVING FORWARD & WILL VOTE NO TO UNION. ....WHERE'S CON-WAY LOYALTY TO IT'S EMPLOYEES & THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. DON'T TALK ABOUT THE PRESIDENT , THE ECONOMY, & ESPECIALLY UNEMPLOYMENT WHEN CON-WAY IS ONE OF THE COMPANIES WHO PRACTICE MOVING AMERICA JOBS OVERSEAS TO SAVE A BUCK FIFTY.
NO CON-WAY YOUR NOT A PART OF THE SOLUTION YOU'RE A PART OF THE PROBLEM. .......GREED

Well drivers if let's say ABF would like to grow and grow and grow they need 3 things, equipment , drivers , and business,, so my point being Is , conway can not replace all of us there is a huge shortage of drivers we all know this .just a thought, how long could conway last without good drivers.

Anonymous said...

How about Yrc mabe they need us , remember conway tried to put Yrc out of business, equipment plus us equal business for Yrc and Abf i say that because if conway doesn't have the drivers who will pick up the freight, and if conway can't service the customer guess what stocks hit O and do i need to say more.

Anonymous said...

I wonder what Yrc or Abf would think if they could let's say get 40 percent of us , the rest would follow because conway may not survive a large number of drivers leaving for the competition , there is no way conway could replace us anytime soon , by then it would be to late, oh dang how about bringing fed-ex drivers along also oh boy Yrc and Abf top dogs for sure, How Could We Get This Done ?

Anonymous said...

Oh yes if we cant get union representation at conway lets go to one that is already and take the customer with us.

Anonymous said...

THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT, IF THEY WANT TO KEEP FUCKING WITH THEIR EMPLOYEES THERE'S OTHERS WHO WOULD LUV EXPERIENCE CON-WAY DRIVERS. WE HERE AT NNC LOST ABOUT 15 TO 20 DRIVERS WITHIN A YEAR. YEAH WE CAN TAKE THE CUSTOMERS WITH US A LOT OF CUSTOMERS HAVE ALREADY LEFT. AND CON-WAY WANTS TO CONTINUE WITH LEAN. WELL PRETTY SOON THEIR POCKETS ARE GOING TO START BEING LEAN. NO DRIVERS, NO CUSTOMERS, NO CUSTOMERS, NO PROFITS, NO PROFITS. NO SHAREHOLDERS. THEY USE LEAN BECAUSE THEY CAN'T KEEP OR GET NEW CUSTOMERS SO THEY CUT STAFF, OUTSOURCE DEPTS, TO SHOW SOME PROFITS GAINS TO THE SHAREHOLDERS. BUT IN REALITY THEY HAVEN'T GAIN SHIT, THEY ARE JUST SAVING ON THEIR OPERATING COSTS. CON-WAY TRULY BELIEVE THEY ARE UNTOUCHABLE. ....NOW IS THE TIME BROTHERS & SISTERS TO REALLY VOTE IN THE UNION BECAUSE WE NOW HAVE THE WORST LEADERSHIP IN CON-WAY HISTORY. NUMBSKULL & HIS GREEDY BASTARDS CONTINUE TO MAKE ONE BAD DECISION AFTER ANOTHER. .....UNION 2015.

yrc is making profits and abf is doing good how does conway explain this?

Anonymous said...

So Conway made a profit I wonder if we will get another raise in 2015??

Anonymous said...

Go Miami , its of my opinion the raise that laredo got us , will be taken away if not all of it some it , im guessing mmabe late 2nd quarter or 3rd , due to the fact conway's freight has fallen at least in some terminal's, and they will use this as a excuse to cut our wages and or say we no longer will cover insurance,

Anonymous said...

Im sure as soon as conway thinks they have the union beat they will go back to the tyrrants they are .

Greg looked confident in the video!! I hope we can change that soon!!

Thank you for an update

There will be no more raises for at least 3 years or longer.Con-way has just Invested a bunch of money on New Equipment like Trucks,Hand Helds,I T programs and Lean.and as Greg said in the video Con-way has been spending to much Money And Time fighting The Union.So what do you people Expect? For Con-Way to give Us something for nothing?As Greg would say THATS NOT GOOD BUSINESS.I got that from One from Upper Management.This Guy also. Told me that Con-way has big plans to get rid of people who think they should have rights.I believe him too his one manager who thinks we should get the Union Involved.Because as he said Im told to treat people like shit so Con-way can make more profits.I say its up to us to fight for Whats right for all of Us and help out the Ecconomi along the way.All it takes is smarts to know when your being screwes over by Greedy people.I got my bonus Check and it sure looks like We all Got Screwed thats why Greg seem so happy in the Video.

Steve and grandpa from ULA screw both of you scumbags everyone knows you're nothing but lapdogs ask mike the cocksuker who runs the lean program how much money lean is gonna put into your retirement funds you ignorant punks! Retirement pensions funds are just like 401k's funds except retirement pension funds are protected by law 401k's are easy to steal from corporate crooks like Gregory lemkhul and tom Clark . keep working hard for your masters idiots.

Anonymous said...

Like I said months ago that lean is the end of all of us. Robot's is what they want, trust me when I say this, if everyone is required to do the job the exact same way as everyone else then it makes it easier to replace you. They will have a strict process in place and if you don't follow it you are gone. Don't believe the lean manager's, they get paid to do this stuff, if the share holders would just open their eyes and see that not only hourly employee's are at risk but also supervisors and customer service representatives. This is going to be the worst year we have seen in a long time. Stand up for what you believe in but not to a point where you are singled out alone. Here at ULX and ULA the changes have already begun. Trust no SCM they have been brain washed and now placing fear in the FOS staff and making them feel like they also have no future if they fail to get on board with lean.

Anonymous said...

The executive management have made it clear to all salaried personnel that if they are not on board with lean then they will be out.

Anonymous said...

Most of the FOS staff we currently have aren't that bad, think about having some lean guy with no knowledge of operations running your shift or being your supervisor? Thing's will be really bad, that is the direction they are going. No loyalty even to senior supervisors, it's all about lean guy's. Question: has any other trucking company tried to go lean? Answer: no, not any company that doesn't manufacturer has tried going lean, why? It will not work! Lean manager's get paid more than and FOS or FOR and keep in mind that they just arrived, how is it that they come in and get paid more? Ask the top guy's.
