(PORT OF SAVANNAH, Ga.) – XPO Drayage, Inc., has reached a settlement agreement with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) over Unfair Labor Practice charges filed by Teamsters Local 728, Atlanta, following a widely-publicized incident, which was captured on police audio tape and subsequently shared on the Huffington Post, outside XPO’s Wentworth, Ga. facility. XPO, which has a long history of retaliation against its drivers for concerted union activity and for misclassifying its drayage and last mile drivers as “independent contractors” rendering them outside the protection of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), has signed an agreement in which the company agreed to post an official Board notice effectively stating that these misclassified drivers have the right to form a union and are protected under the NLRA.
