Let's keep the ball rolling
Oh boy. You people have really done it now. Mr. Jacobs is really inconvenience and very upset. So is Mr. Brooks. They have their upper management in a spiral of meeting's. Mr. Jacobs and Mr. Brooks want this contained. So get ready because the cameras are coming out and XPO will be making a few videos. So make sure you people get your popcorn ready, Because you all are going to get an ears full about how much your valued at XPO. They're hoping they can brainwash a few of you.Well good luck and enjoy the show.$$$$.......§§§§§¿¿¿ΩΩΩΩ........$$$$
Add Milwaukee to that list soon
All these companies are the same just so happens XPO/Conway and FedEx are the two largest and the two most selfish companies they both combined have taken away benefits and pay but say they can't afford more but always can come up with money for acquisitions what a disgrace the American people are suffering
AMERICAN CONSULTING GROUP, INC Are this the union busting thugs in Trenton?
We will be bringing you and update on to the great times and the fun times and what a great place to work in the Miami Terminal is, this terminal practically runs by itself we don't need an operations manager we don't need a terminal manager because thier never around when you need them they're only around when they want to tell you something or to try to bust your ass in something, of course they always blame the drivers but they're inside employees are the ones that are stealing time every day left and right, right in front of the noses of course they'll tell you they don't know nothing about it and then when you tell them something about it they don't do a fucken thing that's exactly why we need the Union everywhere! So once again I tell you why would you bitch for having the union beingin a terminal when management does whatever the fuck they want to do, so the supervisors you complain to them about a problem and say yeah don't worry about I will take care of it but then in the end we all know that they don't do a fucking thing about it either of course the ones that are causing the problems and conflicts and doing whatever the fuck they want to do and stealing companytime is their own people because they don't want that Union so you know what I tell them, fuck them. Union all the way Miami Teamsters.
Miami sounds just like Orlando? Wait a minute I forgot your number 1 and 2 John and Logan came from Orlando LOL.
In Orlando it's the same Patrick and Shawn what a waste of money? They send the hard working drivers home and keep the rats that are stealing time around! Hope everybody enjoyed that 70 cent raise because xpo getting more in return no more overtime except for the chosen few we have them in every service center. Those drivers that where so anti union now crying all the way to there cars when there told to go home with only 5 or 6 hours. But to all my fellow drivers we have the power if you want your hours every stop we go to has a set amount of time in handheld we can give that customer give every customer all the time down to the second! If all these fucking Rat's steal time we can do it buy the book. New slogan for XPO is give your customers every second they deserve!
I was told to not be talking about a union to the wrong person or I could get in trouble for time theft? Is that true? I'm in chicagoland
Slowly but surely people are coming aboard at ULA. So much stuff is changed at their convenience that its unbelievable. Last week they decided to start calling drivers in and skipped about 8 of us drivers. They favored 1 guy to come in hours before everybody that is above him on the extra board. When we asked our fom Benn, why he said he needed him and would continue to do so. Well hey ULA management why dont you just take away the extra board all together and just call in by favorite ass kissers. The first time we organized and did not want management to know. This time Benn, tim, Dave, Jason, etc, we are getting ready for another vote thanks to your favoritism, lies, and all the bs you guys come up with every day. It is not our falt that most of us do not kiss ass or our father do not work here, we just want to show up to work and be treated equal and for you guys to follow your own fkn rules that you have in place. How hard is that? Hr lady? ULA? ULA is coming everybody stay strong.
Yes you can. If you want to talk union or organize you meed to do it on your own time. Like on your break's or lunch time. Either wise careful as you can read there's alot off two faced back stabbers in this company.This people are only out for themselves..Best thing to do is get people you trust off the clock and organize. Good luck i hope you find the strength in your coworkers.. Make sure to vote YES and bring equality.
That's right you can talk about union during break,lunch or off the clock if management threatened you for talking about union make sure to write down the time and date it happened to file charges with the Nlrb for violating your rights, wear a teamster lanyard or a pin if management tells you to take it off that a violation it's against the law,the company will get fine and will be enforced to post this https://www.nlrb.gov/sites/default/files/attachments/basic-page/node-3788/employee_rights_fnl.pdf in the break room apologizing for violating employees rights.
Would it be good or bad to be off the dock and just drive like estes/RL?
Would less hours working on the dock eliminate all the headaches?
How does one just setup a vote? I feel that my coworkers in Milwaukee would say no in conversation but would vote yes for change
What is the real difference between Miami and a non union terminal? Is it more strict/writeups, are supervisors+tm pissed that it's union now?
Don't be afraid guys that's what's between choosing for a better future when we start planning for our retirement if you vote no for union representation you're giving other people to decide for your future but if you vote yes for union representation or having lawyers representing us that's what teamsters are our lawyers representing us we will have a better chance to control our future for ourselves and families. Let me tell you that supervisors will also benefit if we go union because they will not be under so much pressure to meet their goals that are being raise every year.
You need to get together with a union rep. They will do the setting up. But just remember stick together stay strong and vote Yes. Because if you guy's loose your petition nothing will change and management will just laugh at guy's because now they know you guy's don't have the ball's to stand up against them.But they also know that if they screw with you. You and the union can file charges against them. The best thing is make sure to get enough Yes votes.Good luck.
Could I make a phone call or would I have to identify myself and meet in person?
If you need help organizing Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Going union is like having an insurance policy: You pray that you'll never use it, but when the time comes you'll thank God you had it!
Can the teamsters show up one day and hold an election? It would be a good indication of how many people are serious holding an anonymous vote
Can we have a union where we get certain routes+hours+no dockwork
Written up for being 1minute late. I've had enough
Why are we hiring so many drivers, it's better not having as many versus to many
It doesn't work that way. The union has to warn the company that the employees want to be represented. Then the company will hire a 3rd party (union buster)representative to come and threaten ,Lie ,bribe and intimidate the worker's. Then depending on how strong the worker's are then you get a day to vote. But either wise your place can't just have a vote.Good Luck.
XHG WERE ALMOST THERE STAY FOCUSED!!!
If I were to call the union, say my terminal (milwaukee) wants to talk more about a union, could I give them my name and get the ball rolling for a vote or would a certain number of workers have to call too? The last post said the union would call the employer but at what point does that take place?
Thats what happens when you think union. Better to run away and be quiet
Are they getting rid of drivers on the dock? Because I have heard this for 8 years now and I still work the dock.
Will xpo sell again?
Get ready you can kiss your overtime,bye-bye!!!
Don't worry within the next year you won't have to work the dock...... Because part time dock workers will be taking drivers spot on the dock leaving drivers with 30-35 hours a week. This may good for you who doesn't want to work the dock, but for the other 99% who depend on 45-50 hours a week from working the dock it doesn't help us. Union yes!!
How long has the union threat been going on? Just about the same time. Right? just like when we get a raise. It's not because the company wants to give you a raise or the high amount they give.It's the union threat. That control's and gives.
Maybe this will answer your question..This was posted a few day's ago.Jacobs Private Equity LLC to take a majority stake in XPO’s predecessor, Express-1 Expedited Solutions, for $135 million in 2011, replacing the board and naming himself CEO.The next deal, he hints, may not be that far away.“Sooner or later, whether it is sooner like in six to nine months, or later like two years or two-and-a-half years, we will go back and start doing some M&A,” Jacobs said during the Feb. 22 conference call. “Building up an M&A pipeline doesn’t happen overnight.”
what is m&a
Just a matter of time til were sold again..American carousel
id be more worried about job security than overtime. I think security would be fine, dockworkers seem to always quit in the winter anyway bc xpo is to dumb and cheap to realize some small investment in heat and dock bumpers pay for themselves in the winter
M&A = mergers and acquisitions
New people don't get vacations anymore?
The Bloomberg Billionaires Index values Jacobs’s personal fortune at more than $1.4 billion, including funds from prior stock sales, and real estate in Connecticut and Florida. He declined to be interviewed and to comment on his net worth.
Where is XHG in what city?
Jeeze how did jacobs get so rich. What happened to the old companies he ran like that united recycle place?
xpo is going to sell Ltl again, just a matter of time. The question is who will buy us?!!
Jacob got rich screwing workers at united rentals.
XHG = Hagerstown, MD which is actually located in Greencastle, PA. one mile from the Maryland state line.
Yes, my bet is to Saia
New hires are the key to hold the ship in place for 2years til the company sells to saia or another unknown company. Explains the dockworker overhaul and corporate quitting
They're not going to sell, what they're going to do is hire all part time dock workers to move freight paying them $16 an hour, offering them 20-25 hours a week without giving them benefits. Which is better for them than paying us drivers $26 an hour for straight time or $40 for overtime. Bradley Jacobs is going to make a shit ton of money by stealing our work from us and depriving us of any overtime or not even us getting 40 hours. He sees this goldmine and so why would he sell? He wants that extra 100 million a year bonus in stocks. He needs that money to pay his bills I guess.So we're stuck with this asshole.
Unless we get the Union in here to stop this shit!
Saia doesn't have the money to buy XPO. It's very unlikely but we better go union before we get sold again. For those rats like Richie from Orlando, I believe he's in Trenton this week trying to mislead and scare drivers against the union. He's telling lies about Miami and the other terminals that have voted for the union.
It would probably be a bigger company like Yrc or holland. Or a smaller company like Dayton trying to grow
Ceo should not be making that much, corporate greed. How much goes ups ceo make?
Mr Bradley Jacobs is only getting Richer$$$ by the minute PEOPLE! don't you get and then actual question why if he was able to give $0.70 why did he give a dollar I've got the money to give it to you because it's called corporate greed and it will always be corporate greed it's cold or goes like this we give you a penny we keep a dollar we give you a dollar we keep $1,000 so I asked you all why can't we all have a better life in a better future where we're at think about that for a minute signing off Miami Teamsters.
What does Miami benefits get versus a nonunion termninal
Miami is negotiating a contract with corporate lawyers and teamsters lawyers representing employees. They're at the table negotiating work rules or policies, retirement and medical benefits.
Trenton still voting today
Plus the treatment of drivers has improved sense the union came in here. There are some things that happens right away like attitude adjustments!
Xpo will not give you the Health Benefits that the Teamsters Union will give you in savings for you and your family Thousands of Dollars$$$ in the End one of the primary Benefits of having a Union also the most important thing " PROTECTION " which right now non of you have, let me ask you how does it feel to come to work and having not to worry about Losing your Job or getting Fired for any stupid reason or for talking back to a Supervisor, that is part of not being an at will employee in a right to work State. Meanwhile we are all at will employees. I REST MY CASE. Miami Teamsters.
Congratulations Trenton!!!! You did it xpo has no more control over you.IBT FREE AND ACCEPTED!!! We all know who's next!!!The saga continues!!!!
Bradley Jacobs initials are BJ....Stands for blow job. Bradley blow job Jacobs is a greedy corporate thief.
How did the vote in Trenton go
Voted it in
Xpo Trenton and 701 have won 17-14
Elgin drivers no 17-23
milwaukee 62 yes so far. Picking up some momentum from parking lot talk
Will the top scale be higher or lower when all is done?
Trenton makes how many terminals union now?
Miami teamster, congrats Trenton, I hope the rest of the drivers in this company get smart and realize the only way to a better future is by having union representation.
Congragulasions to Trenton's. You've showed the rest of the industry to how we are to fight for are future. We must always fight to not give up, to no give up my friends. Yes to into the union for are future!
big terminals don't have a chance to go union versus these little ones that approve..just the facts
How does a union benefit employees closer to retirement is the question I come across when spreading the word, Help
If you're 60 years or older you're automatically vested if we negotiate for a pension, older workers near retirement age will get a 10 years credit.
Ladies and Gentleman "WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Just heard from a Very good source can't say or they will get Fired! XPO LOGISTICS WILL BE SOLD WITHIN THE NEXT 3YRS YES U HEARD IT WITHIN THE NEXT 3YRS. if you're around to see it Happen or hear about it.
Thats right my friend and everything that the Union Buster says 99.9% it is all lies just so we would not vote or go union two things will definitely happen and this I promise you one the company will sell eventually 2 we all go Union and if you're protected by the laws of this country then there's very little that the company could do but sell but if you are a certified terminal Union represented you will always be protected by the IBT, the International Brotherhood Teamsters, and by the laws of this country, by the way so you know the company has been lying all along and will keep lying just not to see the union come in, but my friend but my friends I tell you the union will come in eventually because this company is not only corporate greed$$ there are also a discriminatioal company against their employees, and Management has a lot of favoritism only because of Retaliation! Against their union employee members. In Mia/NMF our XX TM N.W she got fired for all the discrimination and greediness against her employees she got what she deserved,also our X TM J.W he was also fired and was always in retaliation against the collective bargaining unit members in Mia he also got what he deserved all although we don't wish either one of them the worst and it's not personal, it was only business but I'm unfortunate it became personal to them. And they both got what they deserved just like everyone else that does good will get his deed and everyone that does evil will also get their fate. So I tell you my friends (don't do unto others what you would not have want done to you.Peace out Mia Teamsters.
