Workers Want Respect, Retirement Security and Affordable Health Care
XPO freight drivers in Erie, Pennsylvania filed for Teamster representation on April 9, 2019, the latest action by workers across the U.S. who are banding together to fight for fair treatment at one of the largest transportation and logistics companies in the world.
The workers are seeking fair wages and are seeking affordable, quality health care, retirement security and respect on the job. They are planning to join XPO freight workers in Laredo, Texas; Los Angeles; Miami, Florida; Aurora, Ill.; King of Prussia, Pa.; Trenton, N.J. and Cinnaminson, N.J. who have already joined the Teamsters.
“We’re looking forward to working with the employees at XPO and helping to improve their workplace environment and their life,” said Steve Getz, President of Teamsters Local 397 in Erie. “We will stand with these workers as they form their union.”
Port, freight and warehouse workers at XPO are coming together across the country in their fight for fairness, dignity, and respect.
