Federal Court Ruling is Victory for XPO Workers in Laredo, Texas

A federal court has denied XPO/Con-way’s latest attempt to delay the decision by workers in Laredo, Texas to form their union as Teamsters with Local 657.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit rejected the company’s petition for review of an order of the National Labor Relations Board requiring the company to recognize Local 657 as the workers’ bargaining representative. The workers voted to form their union as Teamsters in September 2014.

“The court has rejected yet another attempt by XPO to delay justice to these workers,” said Frank Perkins, President of Local 657 in San Antonio. “The company can appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, but we think that is unlikely in this case. We demand that the company respect these workers’ wishes and begin bargaining a contract soon.”
