Teamsters Oppose TForce’s Efforts to Shrink Workforce


(WASHINGTON) – Today, the Teamsters National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee (TNFINC) commenced another round of meetings with TForce Freight for a new national agreement to succeed the current contract expiring on July 31.  

As negotiations resumed, union representative Kris Taylor blasted the company for trying to shrink its workforce through the use of job reductions masquerading as “buyouts.” TForce has been trying to lure certain drivers to voluntarily leave the company thereby shrinking the workforce. 

“We oppose the elimination of any union driver jobs. What makes it even more offensive is that the company already diverts an unacceptable amount of freight to rail and purchased transportation. We intend to put a stop to this,” Taylor said.
