    Here is the official Teamsters news release. It really is great news!!

    Drivers at XPO Logistics in California Vote to Join Teamsters Local 87


    (BAKERSFIELD, CA) -- A group of line and city drivers at XPO Logistics in Central California have voted by a nearly 3-1 margin to join Teamsters Local 87, joining workers at seven other locations who are demanding fairness at one of the nation's largest logistics companies. The election took place Friday, December 6.

    "We are tired of the company's empty promises, so we formed our union as Teamsters to have a strong voice on the job," said Joel Garibay, a driver at XPO in Bakersfield. "We will use this strong voice to fight for positive changes at XPO."

    The Bakersfield workers join their co-workers in Vernon, California; Laredo, Texas; Miami; Cinnaminson and Trenton, New Jersey; Aurora, Illinois and King of Prussia, Pennsylvania who have already voted to become Teamsters.

    "The company used a squad of its union busters to try to knock the workers down, but they remained strong and united," said Joseph Sumlin, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 87 in Bakersfield. "We will work with the International Union to win these workers the fairness and justice they deserve."

    It’s official—the NLRB has certified Teamsters Local 87 as the official representative for XPO workers in Bakersfield, California. The group of line and city drivers in the Central California city voted Dec. 6, 2019, by a nearly 3-1 margin, to join Local 87. This proves again, that when workers win big, the company doesn’t challenge the election results. Let’s all stand with the workers in Bakersfield in their fight for fairness at XPO!
