Federal Court Ruling is Victory for XPO Workers in Laredo, Texas



A federal court has denied XPO/Con-way’s latest attempt to delay the decision by workers in Laredo, Texas to form their union as Teamsters with Local 657.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit rejected the company’s petition for review of an order of the National Labor Relations Board requiring the company to recognize Local 657 as the workers’ bargaining representative. The workers voted to form their union as Teamsters in September 2014.
“The court has rejected yet another attempt by XPO to delay justice to these workers,” said Frank Perkins, President of Local 657 in San Antonio. “The company can appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, but we think that is unlikely in this case. We demand that the company respect these workers’ wishes and begin bargaining a contract soon.”

Right to work states mean you will have a choice to join the uinon or not once it's voted in

Our children are going to be working 2-3 jobs just to make ends meet shame on all of us what working conditions we are leaving our children and it's all because the people we are electing to represent us, corporate freinds anti worker. So look at your child and picture him her working all day just to make ends meet and all because our generation is racist selfish and uneducated as far as our politics!

Of course they want you to quit. You quit they get a new hire they pay less with also less benefits. More profit to add to the 110 million dollar bonus.. Hmm? I forget who get's the 110÷ million dollars bonus?? Is it the worker's??

Thank to union organizing going on we're getting the respect we deserve we also got a big raise 2 years ago so let those uninformed ignorant busters talk all the shit they want against the union.
Hypocrites m/f benefiting off the back of those drivers who are active making an effort to stand up against corrupt corporate executives.

Ladies and Gentleman the Ignorance in someones mind will always define themselves, and will stop them from seeing beyond thier own minds until it's to late, not knowing what you could have had.
What I'm saying is that now is the time
To have a better life and future don't let anyone take it away from you specifically Xpo. Vote yes Union all the way!.
