(WASHINGTON) – Drivers at XPO Logistics in Cinnaminson, N.J. filed for Teamster representation today with Local 107, the latest action by workers across the U.S. who are banding together to fight for fair treatment at one of the largest transportation and logistics companies in the world.
The drivers are planning to join XPO freight workers in Laredo, Texas; Los Angeles; Miami, Florida; Aurora, Ill.; King of Prussia, Pa., and Trenton, N.J. and warehouse workers in North Haven, Conn. who have already joined the Teamsters.
“The workers want a legally binding process to hold XPO accountable for the mistreatment,” said Bill Hamilton, President of Local 107 in Philadelphia. “They are also concerned about the loss of work to subcontractors delivering goods directly to customers, known as last mile drivers.”
Port, freight and warehouse workers at XPO are coming together across the country in their fight for a more secure future.
