Drivers report that the company told them that if they buy their own trucks then they can come back to work as independent contractors. Universal’s morally reprehensible action happens just weeks after 28 employee drivers at Universal Intermodal voted overwhelmingly to be represented by Long Beach-based Teamsters Local 848, all of whom have now been fired.
