What will happen to the TM & DOO who can't control their terminals? Their strategy is to pay these union busters over $350 an hour to sit around and report everything they think they have analyzed. That's GREED for you, they rather pay these guys $3000 or more a week than to invest in better health care and fair wages. That's how they get over on southern workers by paying less to DSR, DOCK WORKERS & THE POOR CSR'S who hasn't even had a raise in two or more years. The company has a very poor perception of women (CSR'S). This company would rather hire union busters than to take of it's own....just REMEMBER like our past president your GREED WILL LEAD ONLY TO DESTRUCTION. DO RIGHT BY THE PEOPLE. ..TRY COMPROMISING IT WILL SAVE YOU MILLIONS IN THE END. ...YOU CAN'T WRITE OFF EVERYTHING.

Over $1.5 million paid out over the last 2 years between Conway and XPO to talk you out of voting it in. Look it up yourself.

This company will always push you to your limits and demand more taking days off is always a problem paying you what you deserve is always a problem giving you a decent insurance always a problem and will give you no pension their back is up against the wall now what are they going to do????

Yes... premiums are going up as high as $8 a week. Smokers will pay $23 a week and it's still an 80/20 split. So the coverage is the same, but premiums went up! So another reason to vote yes on Union!

I just heard the good news! Congratulations to all!! I hope and pray the push continues. What we need now is to lock down a region. This will put the company in a position where they have to recognizes us and negotiate a good contract. And once a good contract is in place others will be more willing to vote YES.

Brothers and Sisters stay strong and stay the course! Together we can and will do this.

To those who have had a vote and lost, stay strong you will get another chance to have your voices heard

To those who are considering applying for representation keep your heads in the game. This is about our futures, job security, retirement and medical, for us and our families.

To those who have voted YES I am brought to tears of joy over your resolve, determination, strength and courage. Keep up the good work and THANK YOU for spearheading the way.

Always remember…you can tell when a union buster is lying...their lips are moving!

All of this is possible because Obama has been appointing worker friendly judges. This the time to vote the unions in for years the court system was anti workers and favored corporations that's all changing thanks to Obama apppointing the federal judges during congressional recess. If the working people of America want this to continue vote Hillary!

Company is so poorly managed James Grose got regional manager position and has never ran a terminal He could hardly run a sector more less plan out budgets but what the heck somebody always needs a fall guy looks like they found one Let's see how long he last before he gets fired and has to drag his poor family to another side of the country UNION

Anonymous said...

Why is it that we do all the work and bring in all the revenue and yet our bounce is nothing compared to what the supervisors get and upper management

Anonymous said...

Thanks for those FACTS most of us don't Realize everything these court appointed JUDGES stand for. Just as we have put our trust in corporations ONLY to be screwed over and over again while some law makers protect theses corporations as they continue to be the ultimate despise of this very country we live. As I have said before we don't take care of our own. Insurance premiums continues to rise along with the cost of medications and out of pocket medical procedures. People don't sit around waiting for Mr Jacobs to work with us, he will not compromise on anything unless his hands are forced by the law. Yes this is his company and he chooses to run his company on GREED, but we are the ones who make the profits for him and he chooses to be an UNJUST OWNER....Mr Jacobs is writing his own legacy. ...GREED,GREED, & MORE GREED!

Xpn doesnt miss him,thats why this company has got worse ,still loaded up with incompetent management at all levels that don't treat everyone the same,and they promote the biggest suckass screw ups.

I hope you're all happy with the new insurance. premiums went up about 5.50 a week for me same coverage and still high deductibles... what ever crap raise they give us probably won't cover the increase cost if our insurance. They specifically said they want us to share in the cost of insurance... that's code for let's get the employees to pay more. Union Yes!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Again the family insurance going high,I prefer to paid 57.50 a month to union dues than paid 360$ dlls a month for the family plan and saved 302 dollars on my pocket

Anonymous said...

Save$320 plus overtime and pension plan and job security.

They said the company spends 200 million on insurance and they act like it's a lot... this company is valued at 15 billion. it's all bullshit

Anonymous said...

This insurance plan is a slap in the Face! Wake up people can't you see what there doing to us. They want to blame everything on high medical costs... but the reality is they simply don't want to spend the money on us even though they have it.

I would hope that all of you by now would get the big picture before the union came in Con-way Freight was thinking of selling it to XPO so my friends it was all in the making this is your time to stand up for what you believe because if not little by little we will be sold, XConway will be sold again for the Price Is Right buy XPO Logistics Brad Jacobs ladies and gentlemen Brad Jacobs is a man of making money he doesn't care about you he doesn't care about your family all he cares about is making his money and by now for the second time you should all wake up and smell your Future! Do not be Ignorant be Protected, get your presentation go to your local union rep for you to have a better future fight for what you believe and stand up for yourselves and your family a word to the wise.
Remember you lose your first Battles in your own Mind.
Peace Out local 769 Miami/NMF.

MIAMI TEAMSTER , WELL SAID BROTHER, AND YES IS TRUE OUR INSURANCE REMAINS THE SAME COST FOR NEXT YEAR, WAKE UP PEOPLE AND STAND UP, PUT THE FUCKING FEAR ASIDE AND FIGHT FOR YOUR FAMILY, UNION YESSSSSS

Hi I'm Shane said...

What one deserves and how much revenue a position generates is 2 completely different talking points.

Hi I'm Shane said...

Insurance companies are gouging everywhere they can, can you legitimately believe companies have unlimited revenue to absorb this cost? I'm against higher costs just like anyone else but Until you have all the facts it's unfair to assume it's greed.

Anonymous said...

That's why we need the union to bargain or negotiate collectively for better health insurance coverage.corporate leaders will not give their employees decent benefits unless they're forced to do it.
