(Aurora, Ill.) – Drivers at XPO Logistics in suburban Chicago who formed their union with Teamsters Local 179 in October 2016 “marched on the boss” today to demand that the company start negotiating a contract.
“XPO is mistreating us by refusing to come to the table more than a year after we voted to organize as Teamsters, which is completely unacceptable,” said Jose Ramirez, a driver at XPO in Aurora. “First we had to deal with high-priced union busters during the campaign who repeatedly lied to us, now the company has delayed and delayed the start of negotiations.”
This past July, the National Labor Relations Board ordered XPO to stop refusing to recognize Teamsters Local 179 as the exclusive bargaining representative and to start bargaining with Local 179.
The drivers presented management with a letter and signatures demanding that the company start bargaining right away.
“The drivers at XPO in Aurora stood strong and united during the campaign and they continue to remain strong, despite the company’s vicious anti-worker behavior toward them,” said Tom Flynn, President of Local 179 in Joliet. “We will continue to fight on behalf of the drivers to negotiate a strong contract that protects them and their families. The abuse of the workers must stop.”
