Verizon is investigating complaints of sexual harassment filed by eight women against a Memphis firm it contracts with for shipping of cell phones.
(SEATTLE) –Ahead of Verizon’s annual shareholder meeting Thursday, leading groups in the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements are calling on Verizon CEO Lowell C. McAdam and the company’s board of directors to meet with them and discuss next steps to end pervasive sexual harassment and misconduct in Verizon-contracted warehouses. The letter comes as female workers employed at the Verizon-contracted XPO Logistics warehouse in Memphis recently filed a wave of complaints with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). After receiving the group’s letter, Verizon stated on Wednesday that it will investigate the complaints.
Local 1932 is supporting legislation in the state of California which would make the process of subsidies for companies building warehouses in the Inland Empire more transparent so that good jobs can be made available to the community.
XPO workers and union activists from Belgium, France, Spain, the UK and USA will hold a press conference in Paris to reveal further evidence of worker abuse at the company.
(NORTH MIAMI, Fla.) – Teamsters that work at XPO Logistics in Miami returned to work yesterday following a successful unfair labor practice (ULP) strike that began on April 9.
(WASHINGTON) – Teamsters expanded their footprint this week in Florida when 110 Fresh Point Drivers and eight Sysco Southeast Florida mechanics ratified first contracts as members of Local 769 in North Miami. They join 93 Sysco Southeast Florida drivers who ratified the first union contract in the state in April 2017.
Teamsters chief James P. Hoffa pledged Tuesday to back Memphis XPO warehouse workers who complained about working conditions and their company’s response to an on-the-job death.
