FedEx Freight Drivers in Stockton Say "Yes!" to the Teamsters, Again.


In a shocking turn of events, FedEx Freight drivers in Stockton, Ca voted 
overwhelmingly to continue their union membership on April 26, 2019.

The decertification vote followed a substantial anti-union effort by the 
company which included showings of anti-union videos, group anti-union 
meetings, one-on-one anti-union ride alongs, as well as a barrage of new 
hires in an attempt to stack the vote in their favor. The company has also
 delayed yearly raises for the Stockton drivers citing ongoing 
negotiations with the union even though non-union service centers 
received their annual raises on time.

Despite the company's vigorous attempts to sway the vote, the drivers 
voted 31-16 in favor of remaining in one of the nation's strongest unions,
 the Teamsters. The landslide victory sends a clear
 message to the company,your belittling voice of intimidation will never be
 as loud or as strong as the voices of organized and empowered employees. 

The Fedex Stockton drivers and the Teamsters look forward to ongoing 
negotiations with the company.

Union will never happen, the DSR who's trying to speak for USB has had interest in at least 3 "NON" union trucking companies. If he wants the union so nad why not go to ABR or Reddaway, etc. . . This isn't who needs to be speaking for me or USB. FYI ABF and Reddaway are hiring so go ahead and move on. USB drivers can represent themselves.

Local 63 you think the drivers who show up to your meetings are respected at USB and they're not for sure the 2 getting the union cards signed. They're tolerated. You need target drivers with character and matter at USB or you'll continue to waste your time. Local 63 find some drivers who have respect among the drivers who matter.

It’s my right to see union representation. Pete, how did it go for your brother, Bernie? XPO fired him for supposedly stealing company time. That’s the excuse they use when they want to fire someone. Don’t forget that we’re all “at-will” employees. That means they can fire us for whatever reason they chose. Educate yourself and don’t believe management’s lies.
