    Default Teamsters Demand Justice for Workers While XPO CEO Jacobs Speaks

    (Long Beach, Calif.) – More than 100 Teamsters and their allies held a raucous rally this morning outside a shipping conference to demand that the CEO of XPO Logistics, Bradley Jacobs, end his company’s abhorrent mistreatment of workers in the United States and across the globe.

    Jacobs was delivering the keynote address at the 17th Annual TPM Conference while the rally was taking place.

    “When we raised concerns with management we were ignored, so we decided to organize,” said Ryan Janota, a freight driver at XPO in Aurora, Ill., where workers joined the Teamsters last year. “Instead of respecting our rights, XPO spent a fortune on high-priced union-busting consultants to try and silence us. It didn’t work and we elected to join the Teamsters so Bradley Jacobs will have to listen!”

    XPO freight and warehouse workers are demanding that the company respect their federally protected right to organize, and to stop threatening and intimidating workers, and to bargain contracts in good faith. XPO port and rail drivers are fighting company wage theft, which has led to numerous wage and hour claims, federal charges and protests across European and U.S. ports. Workers also want the company to address safety issues at its warehouses, and to stop misusing contingent workers rather than providing the full-time jobs our communities need, among other issues.
