    Default XPO Logistics Workers Strike in Connecticut While Employees Around the Globe Protest

    (WASHINGTON) – Workers at a XPO Logistics warehouse in North Haven, Connecticut, walked off the job early Thursday over the logistics giant’s unfair labor practices. The workers are seeking to end the illegal abuses and manipulation from XPO. The facility’s exclusive customer is aircraft manufacturer Sikorsky Aircraft.

    While the workers formed a picket line outside the warehouse before sunrise, other XPO truck drivers, warehouse workers and intermodal drivers throughout the United States began a day of protests and informational leaflets at hundreds of company facilities to show that workers are united in standing up for fair pay, benefits and better working conditions. In the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Belgium, European XPO workers and international union leaders were already hours into protesting at company offices and warehouses to sound the alarm on XPO’s record of violating workers’ rights across the globe.

    The wave of actions comes as worker unrest grows over XPO’s abusive treatment of employees and as investor and corporate customer confidence dwindles in XPO’s stability as a business. The company is facing the recent loss of major customers including Amazon and Cummins, declining stock prices and growing shareholder concerns over corporate governance structures and ballooning executive compensation. The company has also been under fire for its abusive treatment of its warehouse workers, freight drivers and truck drivers working at U.S. ports across the country and throughout the world.

    U.S. Rep. DeLauro Visits North Haven Picket Line, Supports Striking XPO Workers

    (NORTH HAVEN, Conn.) – U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-CT, visited with workers who are on strike against XPO Logistics at a warehouse in North Haven, telling them she supports their fight against the company’s unfair labor practices.

    “Do not let these naysayers get in your way and deter you from what your tasks are. You have a right to be part of the decisions that affect your life and the lives of your families. You have the right to affordable health care, the right to retirement security, and most of all, the right to get respect for what you do,” DeLauro said.

    The striking workers, who voted to organize with Teamsters Local 443 in the fall of 2016, are seeking an end to the company’s illegal actions at the warehouse. The facility’s exclusive customer is aircraft manufacturer Sikorsky Aircraft.

    “On behalf of the striking workers and the 1.4 million Teamsters who stand with them, I want to thank Congresswoman DeLauro for her support today,” said Jim Hoffa, Teamsters General President. “Representative DeLauro has been and continues to be a strong ally to working families, and her visit today is just the latest example.”
