We need to talk with the Teamsters.
Our only chance is to unionize and get a contract to protect ourselves, our jobs and our families.

It ain't Conway anymore. Stick a fork in it. Like it or not, conway is gone!

Yep USB has a lot of favorites how about putting sign over time clock and after 10 hrs force dsr to work on dock without any pior notice no matter if you had pior commitment with your family ect I think they are breaking state law by forcing overtime without notice by a certain time of your work day because they don't give a dam about you or your family or your health threatening with write ups of you don't work on the dock USB needs union representation badly.. lets go after all the mangers who are out of line on this blog throw their names on this blog first and last name

XPO LIVES ON CREDIT.ANYONE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE CREDIT RUNS OUT OR IT'S RETRIEVED?
The company reported a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $23.2 million for the quarter, or a loss of $0.21 per diluted share, compared with a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $15.4 million, or a loss of $0.20 per diluted share, for the same period in 2015. The first quarter 2016 net loss includes $16.8 million of one-time after-tax transaction-related costs net of noncontrolling interests, and a $26.9 million non-cash after-tax amortization charge.

The adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders, a non-GAAP measure, was $9.3 million, or a loss of $0.08 per share for the first quarter of 2016, excluding the items detailed below. This compares with an adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders of $9.9 million, or a loss of $0.13 per share, for the first quarter of 2015.

The adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders for the first quarter of 2016 excludes: $27.1 million, or $16.8 million after-tax, of one-time transaction-related costs net of noncontrolling interests; $0.7 million of unrealized foreign exchange cost, net of tax; and a $5.8 million, or $3.6 million after-tax, benefit to depreciation and amortization related to the updated purchase price allocation of acquired assets.

Can any guess how Mr. Jacobs plans to do this????€££€€€¥¥¥¥..Profit improvement???§§§§€€€%

The biggest financial opportunity may be in the former Con-way Inc. business, however, which generated $58 million of adjusted operating income and Mr. Jacobs says is heading toward a profit improvement of $170 million to $210 million by late next year.

XPO released its results after markets closed Tuesday. Shares ended the regular trading session down 3.4% at $29.96.
Also Tuesday, XPO said it agreed to pay $10 million to settle with the Justice Department over allegations that Menlo Logistics Inc., the contract-logistics business that XPO acquired as part of its deal for Con-way, had overcharged the government for military shipments. XPO “strenuously denied” wrongdoing in a statement....

AND PEOPLE WANT TO PUT THEIR TRUST IN XPO'S CEO AND MANAGEMENT. WELL GOOD LUCK TO ALL YOU SUCKERS..

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN LET ME TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENS TO THAT WANT'S TO HAVE UNION TRIES TO GET THE UNION IN AND IT'S NOT ABLE TOO?! I WILL ANSWER THAT QUESTION FOR YOU???
FOR THE TIME BEING EVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT BUT AFTER TIME PASSES THEY COME IN WITH THEIR OTHER TEAM ON MANAGEMENT PLAYERS LITTLE BY LITTLE THEY START ELIMINATING OFFICE PERSONAL HR, SUPERVISORS, MANAGEMENT UNTIL THEY CLEAN I MEAN IF I WAS,
BRAD JACOBS THAT'S WHAT I WOULD DO AND HE WILL IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE HE DOES IT AND HE WILL,REMEMBER PEOPLE ONE OF THE REASONS YOU TRIED TO TO GET
UNION REPRESENTATION WAS BECAUSE MANAGEMENT AND SUPERVISOR'S WERE TREADING YOU LIKE SHIT BEING DISRESPECTFUL NOT GIVING A SHIT ABOUT YOU JUST WORRYING ABOUT THEIR MAKING THE NUMBERS AND OF COURSE CHEATING THE SYSTEM SOMETHING CORPORATE DOESN'T SEE OFTEN?? OR DO THEY???. SO MANAGERS & SUPERVISOR'S WORK TOGETHER LYING TO THE EMPLOYEES TURNING ONE AGAINST EACH OTHERS CO-WORKERS? DOING THEIR DIRTY JOBS TO GET RID OF OF EMPLOYEES OR LEAVING THEM AT HOME WILL THERE ARE TRAILERS SITTING IN THEIR TERMINALS WAITING TO BE STRIPED OR WORKED ON, WHILE DRIVERS ARE WAITING AT HOME FOR A CALL TO COME IN TO WORK ! PRETTY FUCKED UP RIGHT!!! AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HEARING THAT'S HAPPENING IN MIAMI? DON'T KNOW FOR SURE?
HERE'S THE THING IF THE UNION EVER LEAVES MIAMI ???? THE FIST ONE'S THAT GO ARE MANAGEMENT WHY BECAUSE WHEN YOU THE KIND OF DO NOTHINGS DON'T GIVE A SHIT SUPERVISORS THINKING THAT WHEN THE UNION GOES AWAY EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT THE FIRST ONE THAT WILL GO WILL BE THEM WHY?? BECAUSE OF THEM WHAT I WAS TOLD STARTING WITH THE FORMER TM THAT THEY HAD IN MIA THRU THE HR GUY AND SUPERVISORS WERE ALL A PEACE OF SH**T AND STILL SOME LEFT THAT ARE? SO I'VE BEING TOLD THAT'S WHY IT'S COMING THE AVALANCHE OF WANTING TO GO UNION !!!
THIS BUBBLY GOURDS UP NORTH Y'ALL SIGNING OF WITH THE TRUTH ONCE AGAIN.

Bradly S Jacobs should have a visit to NMF Opa Locka air port is just around the block from NMF terminal. BSJ can see for himself why we are losing pick-ups DSR sitting at home only working 8 hours a week, losing freight from our competitors. Management has really dropped the ball in MIAMI.

Our TM here at XPN told us flex drivers were not geruntee 40 hrs and he brings in dock workers instead of us!!! We only get 25/30 hours. He told us to our face he doesn't want us here. If the Union comes to XPN I'll be the first to sign a card

Don't wait for someone else to make your destiny. Go out and grab it for yourself..
You and your coworkers get together and bring the union in..
You already know how management feels about you.and xpo isn't going to do anything for you.

Same thing up here in Michigan we're losing tons of freight we do not take care of the customers it's all about the numbers. Numbers before customers dock workers before drivers. It's about management and what's best for them

I'm also another XPN Driver ready to sign a card... this manager has to go the favoritism is a joke and it's time to send XPO a message and let them know what they got them selves into with this Conway mentality that they keep around!!!

Operations has sunk to a low at NMF MIA. we're Losing customer's an half of our pick ups. Thanks to Logan our Genius Operation manager that the only reason he is in Mia and everyone knows it, it's to make Mia fail, they got rid of him in Orlando according to the employee's of X-CONWAY because he was a A-HOLE said by Orlando DSR'S but what Mr Jacobs Doesn't Know is that 1 of the reasons we went UNION was because of people like this, and the way that Nicole WoodS was Treating everyone and it's, happening RIGHT NOW SAME SHIT DIFFERENT DAY!
SO AGAIN WHY WE WENT UNION
UNTIL THIS MANAGEMENT DOESN'T GO AWAY THIS PLACE WILL REMAIN THE SAME MR BRAD JACOBS
THE PROBLEM ISN'T YOUR EMPLOYEES, THE PROBLEM IS YOUR X-CONWAY MANAGEMENT MENTALITY.
MR JACOBS WE ALL THOUGHT THIS IS XPO NOW, NOT X-CONWAY.

Quit waiting for the union to come to you to sign a card. Quit asking for someone to bring it to your terminal. Go out and get it going. It cost nothing to get started. The cards are free from a union agent. Call the hall. Visit the hall. It will never ever come to you. You need to take the first step. The union will not recruit for you. You are the recruiter and the union advises you how to get the job done. They will assist you in how to get others on board. You have to want it bad enough to bring it to the yard. You have to be willing to do something that your future self will thank you for. Or you can continue down the same road. Losing hours, freight, customers, benefits, etc..

United is the only way. The train has already left the station. There will be a Teamster contract at Conway and FedEx Freight. It is possible to get it voted in. You have several terminals from Conway and FedEx Freight that walked the road you stand on. It ain't easy but it is the best way to go. Get out of the back seat and into the driver seat. You buy insurance on your car, house, boat, RV, life. Why won't you buy insurance for your job? That's what part of the dues are for, insurance for your career. That mysteriously bad card the company talks about has so much power in your favor it's baffling why drivers are not lining up to get on board.
