Teamsters take fight with XPO to New Jersey (Read More…)

William B. Cassidy, Senior Editor | Mar 16, 2017

The Teamsters union carried its battle with XPO Logistics to Trenton, New Jersey, where 33 less-than-truckload drivers filed a petition to organize with the National Labor Relations Board. The New Jersey drivers are the latest XPO employees to seek an election in an ongoing campaign that has made few gains in organizing the second-largest US LTL operator.

The campaign began in September 2014 with a union victory at a Laredo, Texas, terminal then operated by Con-way Freight. XPO acquired Con-way, and its organizing battle with the Teamsters, in 2015. Since then, the Teamsters have won election victories at six terminals, but they’ve lost elections as well, and XPO only recognizes the union at three three terminals.

Put in a larger context, XPO says it has more than 400 LTL operating locations in North America. The company recognizes the union at Miami, Philadelphia, and North Haven, Connecticut. XPO has challenged election victories at Laredo, downtown Los Angeles, and Aurora, Illinois. No local contract proposals have been signed by the company.
