As workers at FedEx Freight across the country stand together for a more secure future and bargaining is under way, the Teamsters have launched a newsletter for workers at FedEx Freight.
The Freight newsletter for September 2016 features articles about contract negotiations at FedEx Freight and how members from XPO and Fed Ex Freight spoke at the Teamster Convention.
A federal court has denied XPO/Con-way’s efforts to set aside the workers’ decision to form their union as Teamsters, which means the company needs to recognize the Teamsters as the workers’ bargaining representative.
FedEx Freight Teamsters from Charlotte, N.C.; Philadelphia; South Brunswick, N.J.; and Stockton, Calif. attended the FedEx shareholders meeting on Sept. 26, 2016, where they confronted CEO Fred Smith about the lousy health care benefits, poor retirement security and the company’s anti-worker, anti-union tactics. Workers attended on behalf of their co-workers who have voted to become Teamsters and the thousands of others who are fighting for a strong voice and respect on the job.
(Washington, D.C.) – Drivers at XPO Logistics in Aurora, Ill. filed for Teamster representation today, the latest action by workers across the United States who are banding together to fight for fair treatment at one of the largest transportation and logistics companies in the world.
(ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.) – Teamsters Joint Council 53’s Executive Board and delegates have unanimously endorsed Katie McGinty for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania.
This week is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. This is a time to remind everyone of the sacrifices and skills of professional truck drivers who keep America moving. Teamsters are celebrating the hard work of the men and women behind the wheel who labor on our nation's roads and highways.
