Just the Facts

“For those of you who are still against the union, know this...XPO offered to let us all go 100 hours negative on our PTO accumulation. Should we have to use that, AND pay it back, it means an entire year without a day off and / or 18 months before we could take a weeks vacation. Wow! At contract negotiations in Cinnaminson, New Jersey, Teamster business agents proposed a 2 week paid sick leave for all certified barns. The company flat out rejected this proposal and re proposed the 100 negative hours. After a short time, the company reconsidered their position and accepted the unions proposal, HOWEVER, they were smart enough to realize that accepting this proposal for union barns only, would only strengthen the union drive throughout the system. So they extended this policy company wide. So, for all you non union terminals, bend the knee and thank the Teamsters for getting you what the company would never have given you. Just the facts, sir.”

Amazing how Fed Ex, and UPS drivers are getting hazard pay and bonuses. Also warehouse workers , and basically all essential workers working in this environment, but XPO is talking pay cuts.. they don’t provide us with anything to protect ourselves or care about our safety. While they work from home we are exposing ourselves and our families, and can’t even get 8 hours. So fucked up

Remember as you are looking in your mirror as you turn in a customers yard your thankless efforts are making you a hero and changing this country.

As much as $25,000 in hazard pay would be afforded over a period of time to those deemed essential, including employees in health care, drug stores, grocery stores, sanitation workers, truck drivers, transportation workers and all federal employees with frontline positions, such as Postal Service workers.

What happens in Laredo ? Asking for a friend

I don’t think that includes XPO drivers. XPO would give us popcorn, and hot dogs.

usm is going to layoff drivers, but won't let go of the part time worker at the dock.

And never will. A private corporation is all about the almighty dollar. First and foremost. Get what you can and get out.

That’s one of the many reasons why we need union representation to protect ourselves from ass holes trying to treat us like kids. Management will not respect us unless we go union we need to man up and stand up to this ass holes we’re doing the hard work risking our life every day and this punk asses hiding between trailers.

I hear you guys and completely understand the way you all feel. What I don't understand is why you're not willing to do something about it. It's simple and there is no risk. It costs nothing and could revamp your working conditions. All you need to do is get enough guys in your terminal to stand up and shout...I'm not going to take this anymore. It's an anonymous process. No one knows you signed a union card and no one will ever see those cards. When you vote, it's a secret ballot and no one will ever know how you voted. There has never been a unanimous vote, so you can always tell management you voted no!!!You are legally protected for your union activities and when we have enough terminals on board...we can bring this company to it's knees.

They pay the dock workers less per hour more profit for them, common can't you see the big picture?

Why the hazard pay now ?? Xpo log

So salary employees get 100-250 a week.
Distribution get 2 dlr raise a hour.

And we ltl get 500 -tax. Hhmmmm!?
Does not surprise me. 500 -tax for now and wait on the class action lil check, its all we can do.

By the way E Jordan brooks in santa fe springs is a customer that had somebody test positive. Its a heads up since management keeps asking us to keep it a secret.

March 13 to may 8 is 39 days of work $500= avg $12.60 a day.

$500 taxed at 36% is about $320.....less than $10 bucks a day. XPO doesn’t give a damn about us. Layoffs all over but still using contractors. When is enough enough?

If supervisors are getting $200 to $300 extra a wk they might make as much as a new hire dsr 🤭😂😂😂

Are employees who are laid off getting hazard pay?

Anonymous said...

Yes

Yes

Anonymous said...

Probably not ! XPO doesn’t care about the drivers they laid off. That’s why they laid them off

Anonymous said...

Xpo paid 0 dollars in taxes in 2019 using a loop holes that big companies find when.employees get taxed more and no bonuses for there dsr's.while Management walks around with a shit eating Grin all day without a mask & acting like the low freight volume is Not a problem as they all get hazard pay every week for doing less for their hourly workers.

I heard ula shut down on friday because a dockworker there has covid-19. Is this true???

Anonymous said...

You are correct they did shut down ULA F.A.C. for a few hours while they "Cleaned/disinfected" the "Whole yard" (YEAH RIGHT). As for who it is, it's a BIG SECRET. Service Center Manager Luis, ALL F.O.M's and F.O.S's won't say who it is or what shift.. But, as you know all XPO cares about is moving freight. Oh and don't forget here is your $500 (before taxes) for putting your life on the line... The dock/fac was only shut down for 5 hours. Every one was instructed to report back to work at 2300 hours. Of course people showed up because in their mind XPO is the best company... and their life is only worth $500.. So that's all the info everyone has because XPO, XPO ULA management is keeping everything hush hush... so remember don't say anything, especially that the Corona Virus is at a facility with over 200 employees.

Anonymous said...

Yes it is

Anonymous said...

Yes# they shut down around 7 and opened by 11pm. A text to all said that a dockworker tested positive and send everyone home.
Now they try to lie and say that maybe it was not true case. How can they open after 4 hours? Anybody? And when ask questions they do not want to answer.
Luis arevalo told employees that they need to take own pto or go negative if you feel sick or want to test for covid.
It is lie after lie with these managers and when the lawyers come in their resignation will be called for starting with luis. we dockworkers no longer feel safe but feel forced to go

The safety of All employees is very important. Hourly employees don't make as much money not being able to work a full Shift, management still gets the same paid every week working 6hrs or 8hrs . So protecting ourselves is more valuable to dockworkers/ drivers then to management. With 10 wks Volunteer leave for hourly employees handed out like candy Through xpo More layoffs are to be in the future in the company Unfortunately.The xpo meets are not talking about all the jobs losses in the USA and xpo,the Foreseeable future for us as employees at xpo. Just a $500 dollar taxed bonus coming next week that doesn't make up for the danger of Risk of Infection we face every day at work. Thank you All for All the hard work you do day in & day out. Protect you and your and family and love ones, stay safe every one.thank you for this blog.

Be very careful with voluntary leave. It sounds great, BUT...you are still an at will employee with NO GUARANTEE that your job will be waiting for you on July 6th. If the freight levels don't return, neither will you.

Anonymous said...

Also employees on leave don’t get the $500 bonus

Great Appreciation Xpo!!! Ooo an Keep the virtual reality meetings going they really work on saving money and time with 20+ Terminal filled with lies and talking about a virtual policy thats fate that changes by the second when you talk to any manager at Xpo throughout the hole company .And don't dare talk about the Corona virus They or reviewing all meets and when anyone asking a questions about time off and shut down Terminals and testing you will be marked as Scared lazy employee Who wants time off. All they want to you know at they had to the shut down terminals & cleaned and it safe to return to work after 4 hrs thats it...W.T.F No talking about the person's or updated conditions.4 Terminals in 4 days ULA,UOR,USB and UBY 3 Terminals in one day had to shut down had to sent everyone home that day.Spreading of the virus this company may face legal fines and lawsuits then lawyers and the Media picks up on this one.Its all Xpo's Fault by not doing the right Practices for months no clean supplies or p.p.e. "just keep working with Stare by all managers." But they did close all the bathrooms right away to protect Owner operators who pull alot of xpo's freight. The Actions is company is taking are a little & a little late.this would have never happened like this if safety was #1 at Xpo.
