(CALIFORNIA) – Port truck drivers for XPO Logistics Inc. who are on strike held rallies in Los Angeles and San Diego and demanded the company end the rampant day-to-day abuse of drivers. The actions come on the heels of a breaking victory as the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement recognized a striking driver as in fact employed by XPO and determined the company owes him $123,074.43 in back pay. Hundreds of port truck drivers from XPO, as well as NFI Industries, walked off the job on Monday.
Concurrent rallies at picket lines in front of XPO in both San Diego and Commerce mark the second day of actions in Southern California. XPO workers raised their voices and shared their stories, all touching on how XPO’s labor practices negatively affect their life.
