Miami teamster, I don't understand why people are so afraid to exercise their right to have representation, look at the company, the moment we filed the petition we had 3 union busters representing them, than a lawyer, look around you their is a reason why pilots, cops, teachers, professional athletes have a union, don't be so afraid you are not doing anything that is not completely legal,and wise.

Guy's Guys do not argue about white and blue don't argue about lean, what all of you need to worry about is your Future with XPO LOGISTICS, don't wait for a Miracle to Happen it won't especially from XPO. When all of you decide what you want and what you need in your future I will tell it won't be with XPO LOGISTICS it will be with another Company, wait and see if you will be here long enough to Witness it, good luck everyone.
When most of you are Fired or gone then all of you will say, DAMN I WISH I HAD VOTED FOR REPRESENTATION TO HAVE RIGHTS, THE UNION. Hey people do us a favor ask your Terminal Managers how does it feel to be Protected, YESSSSS A CONTRACT!
All your Terminal Managers and top Executives have a Binding
Contract Yes We Rest our Fucken Case!

Way to go Laredo we got your back,eventually it will come a time where the company won't be able to buy time with their$$$$. who's next in line to get Certified, it's simple all employees have the Power to decide your own future so why not have it with Protection,
This is what Company's are afraid of Employee's with Rights. So I say fight for your future. Bring the Union in. Good luck to all.

Trump Las Vegas Workers Vote “YES” to Join the Union in NLRB Election

Culinary Union Calls for Immediate Contract Negotiations

LAS VEGAS, NV – After two days of voting in a National Labor Relations Board election, a majority of workers at the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas have voted “YES” to be represented by the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and the Bartenders Union Local 165 of UNITE HERE. Over 500 employees of the hotel are in the union’s bargaining units and were eligible to vote.

Trump Las Vegas workers voted in the NLRB election on December 4 and 5 at their hotel. This victory for workers at the luxury non-gaming hotel co-owned by businessman Donald Trump and casino owner Phillip Ruffin, comes nine months after workers at the Trump International Hotel Toronto voted to join UNITE HERE, and one week after the Trump Toronto workers ratified their first contract.

“I’m so happy that our voices were heard and votes counted!” said Carmen Llarull, a guest room attendant at the hotel, “My coworkers and I look forward to negotiating a fair contract and making our lives better.”

“Trump Las Vegas workers have spoken loud and clear: They want respect, dignity, and the Las Vegas union standard,” said Geoconda Arguello-Kline, Secretary-Treasurer of the Culinary Union. ”Trump Las Vegas should recognize the workers’ vote immediately and sit down with us to negotiate a contract as soon as possible.”

“I’m proud to work at this five-star hotel and am even prouder that we have joined the union,” said Alma Zamarin, a food server at the property. “My coworkers and I need fair wages, good benefits, and job security at the Trump Las Vegas, just like workers at other non-gaming properties on the Las Vegas Strip.”

Other non-casino hotels on the Las Vegas Strip that are union and have union benefits: Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas, Elara Hilton Grand Vacations, Hilton Grand Vacations Suites on the Las Vegas Strip, Hilton Grand Vacation Paradise, and Hilton Grand Vacations Club at the Flamingo.

Culinary Workers Local 226 and Bartenders Local 165, Nevada affiliates of UNITE HERE, represent over 57,000 workers in Las Vegas and Reno, including at most of casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. UNITE HERE represents 270,000 workers in gaming, hotel, and food service industries in North America.

The PAST is gone forever and cannot be altered in any way. The FUTURE is uncertain, at best. It can shift dramatically in response to random unrelated events. NOW is all we have. Live your life to the fullest in the NOW and trust that your actions will bring you to a FUTURE where your greatest hopes and dreams may be realized.

Mr. Chairman -- My name is Michael Zangrillo and I am a DSR for Conway Freight in Miami Florida. I also serve as a Safety Mentor Expert, Driver Trainer, Certified Accuracy Checker, Drive Cam Coach, and I am a member of the Voices and Values Team. I am deeply involved with the Lean Journey in Miami and I am a Teamster.

From the day we filed for union representation, consultants (AKA Union Busters) were flown in from around the country to educate us about the union experience. They were relentless and their presentations were rife with negative innuendo and half truths. They employed many different strategies designed to intimidate and discourage us from choosing to seek union representation. After all was said and done, there were 2 questions for which we had no answers.

Why would you spend countless thousands of dollars to an outside consulting firm for representation, in an attempt to convince us that we don't need representation?
Why wouldn't you spend that money in support of the people who actually do the work?

I realized that there were many negative misconceptions about the union and its purpose. I would like to briefly address that today. We are not my fathers union. We are not the 1970's or 1980's union you may have heard so much about. We have certainly evolved and matured into an organization that unconditionally recognizes that the highest level of cooperation must exist between management and labor in order for both to survive and prosper. In addition to our mission to bring fairness, dignity and respect to the workplace, we are equally committed to supporting the company’s ability to grow and create sustainable long-term shareholder value.

There is mutual benefit in that atmosphere of cooperation...PRODUCTIVITY. A person who feels appreciated will always do more that what is expected. The wisest investment that a company can make is in supporting, recognizing and rewarding the people who do the work. Insure workers satisfaction, so they will remain with the company and not seek greener pastures. There is a national driver shortage and driver retention must be considered a top priority. Minimizing or eliminating new hire training, accidents and injuries all lead to reductions in operating expenses. Customer familiarity, route efficiency and good morale all lead to increased productivity.

The union has a responsibility to its membership and that same membership has a responsibility to the company. Understand that our goals are not mutually exclusive. We all want Accountability, Productivity and Profitability. Conway is a great company and the entire organization is working very hard with the design and implementation of the Lean philosophy, values and principles. It is a philosophy that will place us head and shoulders above our competition and we are committed to making it happen. To the shareholders and the Board -- We would like to express our deepest gratitude to you for your investment and for the confidence you have placed in us. I promise,you will not be disappointed.

We are committed to you and today, I ask you for your commitment to bargain in good faith with Conway drivers in Miami and with any other facility in our system who choose Teamster representation.
Miami Teamsters.

You Sir seem to be a company fisherman..
For thoes who don't what that is.It's a person who monitors webs sites for the companies and when someone post something that the company wants to keep under wraps they fish by asking questions to see how much we really know about the companies plan's.If you get the right answers then the company can change their plan's or just push forward ahead with them.. I know for a fact Conway now XPO has monitors reading all that's posted on Trucking sites or Any where the company is meantioned.. By you ask for a heads up tells me XPO was really trying to keep their Pink card system under wraps. Because when people find out about it they might jump ship or actually vote for representation.. But I'll leave that choice to the workers of XPO...It's your choice people. We make the company what it is..Remember that!!!
