    Default Feds: XPO/Con-way Must Bargain With Teamsters

    This is just awesome!!!!

    A federal court has denied XPO/Con-way’s efforts to set aside the workers’ decision to form their union as Teamsters, which means the company needs to recognize the Teamsters as the workers’ bargaining representative.

    The company can still appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, but it has not done so in similar cases. The company had asserted that there were numerous problems with the election, but the court denied the company’s frivolous claims.

    “The workers in Laredo formed their union as Teamsters way back in September 2014, so this is very welcome news,” said Frank Perkins, President of Local 657 in San Antonio. “The company has tried to do everything to delay and frustrate the workers, but for over two years they have remained strong and united in their fight for a more secure future and a voice on the job.”

    Perkins said he hopes to sit down with the company soon to negotiate a contract that will address the workers’ needs.

    “As our XPO campaign continues to gain momentum, we are pleased with this decision because Laredo got the campaign started,” said Tyson Johnson, Director of the Teamsters Freight Division. “We demand that the company gets serious about negotiating a contract in Laredo. These workers have waited far too long.”
