Truck Drivers Who Haul for Rio Tinto Attend Company's AGM

(LONDON AND PORT OF LOS ANGELES, Calif.) – On Wednesday, April 10, 2019, a delegation of contract truck drivers who haul borax from the Rio Tinto mines in Boron, Calif., to the Port of Los Angeles, together with Teamster leaders, attended the company’s Annual General Meeting in London, England. The drivers, who are employed by Rio Tinto’s contract drayage carrier California Cartage Express, a division of NFI Industries, attended the meeting with Teamster officials to demand an end to wage theft due to their misclassification as independent contractors (rather than employees) and enforcement of the Rio Tinto's Supplier Code of Conduct in their U.S. supply chain.
