Union Busters Lupe Cruz & Ass. LM-21

$3,169,698 is the price that Conway and other corporations are willing to pay to keep us union-free. That’s what they have paid to Lupe Cruz and Associates, a firm of union busters. That’s what Conway has paid so far to keep our wages and benefits down. That’s what they pay to make sure you have no rights at work. They spend that money willfully because that is nothing compared to what they will have to pay us in better wages and benefits should we organize. These people are hired to lie to us, to make us believe that we don’t need a union. They make money on people’s misery. Everything Conway has given to us over the past year is because they are trying to stop the bleeding. The wage increase is to pacify us. That will go away once the union movement dies down. Let’s keep making this company throw money away on union busters. All that money will go to waste and we will still get our union

Lol... drivers are the reason there taking are ot not dock workers. Especially at ula drivers just chill and drink coffee just bullshiting . It's a shame that won't approve comments that question the union. It's just union propaganda

mo jones said...

We are the union the employees, we're not trying to spread union propaganda if you're a dock worker ask a ups dock woker about his benefits compare to conway's that's not propaganda that's a fact union workers have better health benefits, better retirement and safer working conditions. About those drivers drinking coffee milking the clock is not the union problem ula doesn't have a union that's management problem.

We have to do something like MCdonalds did a few days ago to claim what its rigth to us

XBO I JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU GUYS SHUT OUT AND TO LET YOU KNOW THAT YOUR NOT ALONE.DON'T BE AFRAID TO BETTER YOUR FUTURE.I WANT TO SHOW YOU THAT WE AT CONWAY ARE NOT ALONE IN THE FIGHT FOR WORKER RIGHTS...
---Workers across the country at FedEx Freight and Con-way Freight are standing shoulder to shoulder to form their unions with the Teamsters to win a more secure future. Momentum is building with a first wave of victories with many more to come...
(STOCKTON, Calif.) – A group of 50 drivers at FedEx Freight’s Stockton, Calif., terminal have voted to join Teamsters Local 439. The vote took place Thursday, March 12 and today, and the workers voted 33 to 12 to become Teamsters.
--This victory follows three previous ones in 2014: On November 19, a group of 222 drivers at FedEx Freight in Charlotte, N.C., voted to join Teamsters Local 71; on Oct. 31, a group of 113 drivers at FedEx Freight in South Brunswick, N.J., joined Teamsters Local 701 in North Brunswick, N.J.; and on Oct. 14, a group of 47 drivers in Croydon, Pa., voted to join Teamsters Local 107 in Philadelphia.
--P.S I DON'T WORK FOR THE UNION.I WORK FOR THE SAME COMPANY YOU GUYS DO.AND I'VE GONE THREW CONWAY'S MANAGEMENT HARASSMENT,THREATS AND LIES.WHEN I BROUGHT THIS ISSUES UP TO HR ALL I'M TOLD IS,CONWAY HAS THE RIGHT TO DISCIPLINE OR TERMINATE EMPLOYEES.SO I GUESS,I GO FIRST BEFORE MANAGEMENT.SO ITS TIME FOR US TO HAVE RIGHTS AT WORK.WE NEED REPRESENTATION.

Voting yes for Union.Had enough from cwf

To vote. God will help us get Union in cwf


My parents example said...

Both in their 60s

Mother: Union, just retired, pension, two homes, health benefits - casino cocktail waitress - same job 35 years. Union protected her job, her rights, and her wage. She's traveling now....

Father: Non union, corporate sales, 5 companies over 35 years, pays outta pocket for health insurance, no pension, still working, 20K less than he made 15 years ago,

Unions work for people and protect their rights to fair wages and workers' benefits.

Your not even certified. Why do we have to pay dues on money I earned on my own. I'll pay dues on what the union gets me. I bet they won't agree. There a business just like conway

Moe Jones said...

You most be an uninformed dumb ass we won't pay union dues until we(conway employees) agree and sign a contract at this moment ulx,lla and nmf are not paying union dues.nmf is under contract negotiations if they agree and sign on the collective bargaining agreement then they'll start paying dues.

The raise in Jan was the one we were suppose to get last year. Now...another year behind because we are not getting one this year. Meanwhile, others are topping the charts getting richer! You do the math! Low wages on top of lowered morale!

Anonymous said...

Yes!!! No raise in 2015 this is what all you No Voters voted for. Low wages and no retirement! I hope your happy

Anonymous said...

It's funny that some of you are just realizing your not getting a raise this year.because last year after we got the 2.00 raise I posted that when I asked the director of operations when will the next raise be, He said Conway will not be giving another raise for 3 to 5 year's.I also posted for people to go to the hiring site's and post how Conway treats the workers.Because Conway was having management posting on the site's saying it's the best place to work at.So they could over hire people so they would have enough new drivers to replace the ones that have more than 8 years or the ones that wanted the union.Now everyone is surprised that there's a bunch of new hires and were not getting a raise.Well again don't expect to get anything.we have 4 years to go before we get another raise and if any of you leave its ok because you've trained your replacement already.and most of you said no to having a union.That right there is having good business sense.Doug and Greg sure do know how to win.But let's keep voting No and see what we get in the next few years.Probably leaned right out of benefits.why give workers benefits?when there happy working for peanut and don't stand up for their rights!!!

Anonymous said...

I agree 100% there are drivers at my Barn that did not want the Union. Now there complaining that there overtime is gone due to the over hiring. It kills me how one can vote No to Union then complain what Conway does to them. I hate to be the one that says I told you so, but I told you so

Anonymous said...

Why is it so hard to understand that Conway won! They spent millions they broke laws they bribed and made threat's, and still !!!! Won! They can do what ever they want and You will accept it! They will Not give raise's take away Benifits and can easily replace you, and there is nothing you can do about it because you are a No Vote!!

Anonymous said...

Amen. Well said. They plan to keep winning. I saw some of the union busting staff at our service center yesterday.

Anonymous said...

I agree Conway will tell you when you can work how much you make and make you believe you will have a retirement with 401k when the reality is your putting your own money into it and you will get taxed to Hell when you go to claim it at 65. All you No votes just Fucked your selfs. How great is the $2 raise now. Wait till your out of a job when Conway is done with you

Anonymous said...

At my Barn here in Michigan Conway is still hiring drivers and Dock workers when most of us can't even get our 8 hrs in but they still keep hiring. Looks like Conway is going to do some house cleaning why else are they hiring when freight is down and we are part time drivers. This is what the no voters in Xbo wanted good luck!

Basically they told us yesterday in Pontiac that Conway is not going to give raise's for awhile, and they are not going to invest into the work force until our profits get back up to 330 million! We were at 210 last year so we got along way to go! They are going about it all wrong by cutting cost and eliminating wast like line haul runs. They should be investing into the work force and opening runs and growing the revenue! So get ready Conway is on a mission to L.E.A.N. us Down to small pay checks crap Benifits and possibly out of a Job! That's there plan to get to 330 million profit! But go ahead vote No for the Union if you like that plan!!!

Anonymous said...

I have questions for XBO Drivers why didn't you call out Numbskull's Bluff. I don't see drivers in NMF or LLA or ULX getting replaced in 6 Hours? I don't understand why you fear him and why you took him seriously? I would have paid good money too see Numbskull make a Ass of him self! Watching him make his so called threat's would have been funny. Why anyone fears this guy I don't get what is he going to do! Dock worker's do you not know your the lowest paid in the industry! Fed Ex, UPS,Old Dominion,all pay more for there dock workers. What numbskull is going to replace us in 6 hours for better jobs!! There's not a whole lot numbskull can do, but make threats, and I find that funny. I don't know you tell me?

Anonymous said...

They'll make 330 million in profits and they will still cut everything including the workers.Then they'll say that the profit margin has been raised to 450 million and they can't or wont give a raise till its met.Why because Conway is about making money and not about taking care of it workers.Hasn't any one else heard that at the meetings from the management?and thanks to all the dumb ass sheep at conway they continue to take from us.Way to go No Voters u guys really how to suck that Conway rod.

Here in Orlando union busters were here last week milking conway for some more money? When Lupe and his thugs need more money conway gave them a blank check. So they will make up rumors about union activities so they can travel eat and stay in nice hotel's and get paid 300 and hour nice all on con way's dime. For all FAC supervisor's want to give you guys a heads up that Rat Omar was overheard complaining to those union busters last week about you guys saying you were tha problem here in Orlando. Maybe because your guy's are tha only one's holding people accountable! Rat Omar Perez is piss at FAC supervisor's for holding his son accountable for his lack of work!! So you know he's going to complain to Tom Clark in his town hall meeting this week. Please don't let anyone change you guys, a lot of people respect you guys for that!!!

The NLRB is full of shit!!! 3 cases were filed against conway xme 1 for the union buster telling workers the union sent union cards to conway and the union pulled the charge because the NLRB was going to side with conway. 2 a pro union full time dock worker was fired for driving his forklift without the seatbelt, while a anti union full time dock worker and a FOS did the same and no punishment was given but the NLRB sided with conway. 3 a pro union full time dock worker was fired for stealing time, two anti union full time dock workers were caught by the FOS and SCM TWICE for stealing time and no suspension was given and they kept their jobs, and the full time dock worker in case #2 was caught stealing time he was given a write up and the NLRB ruled in conways favor. The NLRB is a bunch of college guys that never driven a truck worked a dock or driven a forklift deciding the working mans fate. Seems like the three cases that the NLRB sided with conway at xme showed everyone at the barn the union or the NLRB couldn't protect us guys against conway.
