    workers at xpo logistics in miami make history, ratify first contract

    (miami lakes, fl) – following a six-year battle, from organizing to completed contract, workers at xpo logistics in miami made history on saturday, july 10 when they voted unanimously to ratify the first teamsters contract at the transportation and logistics giant, which puts the workers’ rights and work lives in a legally binding written contract for the first time.

    “xpo management said workers in the u.s. Would never ratify a contract, but never is now,” said jim hoffa, teamsters general president. “i applaud the workers who stood strong and united over the past six years, despite the company’s horrific anti-worker actions and delays.”

    “this historic event is the result of nearly six years of bargaining, company law breaking, and delays by xpo, which purchased con-way freight in late 2015,” said ernie soehl, director of the teamsters national freight division.

    The drivers and dockworkers at the former con-way freight voted to join local 769 in december 2014. While thousands of workers at xpo in europe belong to unions, this is the first ever teamster contract at the company and paves the way for more to come.

    “workers have picketed, leafletted, filed labor charges, testified in court, filed lawsuits, conducted a ulp strike and more to win justice, and now that justice is here with the ratification of their first contract,” said josh zivalich, president of teamsters local 769 in miami.

    “we remained strong, united and focused here in miami and we never quit our fight for justice,” said mike zangrillo, a driver. “i urge my coworkers in other locations to fight for a fair contract and to not give up.”

    the contract includes “just-cause” protections, a grievance process, successorship language, job protection language and retirement protections, among other improvements.

    workers at xpo in n.j. Ratify contract; 2nd contract approved in a week nationwide

    (trenton, nj) – drivers at xpo logistics in trenton, new jersey made history of their own on saturday, july 17 by ratifying their first contract, one week after their co-workers in miami did the same, and the two groups now have their rights and protections in a legally binding contract for the first time.

    “for the second time in one week, xpo workers ratified their first contract at xpo despite xpo management saying workers would never ratify a contract,” said jim hoffa, teamsters general president. “these two groups’ positive contract votes give other xpo workers the hope that they too can fight and win a more secure future as teamsters.”

    “i’m proud to welcome all the xpo workers into the freight division, and i’m especially proud since the trenton workers are members of my local, local 701,” said ernie soehl, director of the teamsters national freight division. “these two contract victories are critical in our fight to build worker power at xpo.”

    “i’m happy to be joining our brothers in miami who ratified their contract and i look forward to expanding and improving upon this two-year agreement that gives us a strong foundation to build from,” said bruce ryan, a linehaul driver at the former con-way freight and xpo since 1996. “i also look forward to bringing more xpo members into the teamsters union so that they can also have their rights and protections in writing.” xpo purchased con-way in 2015 for $3 billion.

    The group of 34 drivers at xpo in trenton voted to join local 701 in april 2017. Xpo has delayed negotiations, broken labor laws and mistreated workers, all in its attempt to deny workers their federally protected right to form their union and negotiate a contract

    the contract includes “just-cause” protections, a grievance process, successorship language, job protection language and retirement protections, among other improvements.

    Dog and pony show by the IBT to get votes in the upcoming general president election. Negotiate a weak contract only two years long, knowing it's the only way XPO would sign off on it. The billionaire owner of XPO, Brad Jacobs must be pissing himself from laughing so hard right now.
