      492 Teamsters Leaflet XPO Freight in Albuquerque

      8/2/2021 - Today, Teamsters Local 492 President Trey White, Freight Business Agent Tracy McCarty and Trustee/BA Andrew Palmer spent about 3 hours leafleting the XPO facility on the west side of Albuquerque. We handed out flyers to the XPO drivers to let them know about the recent contracts that were ratified in Miami and in New Jersey after a 6 to 7 yearlong battle to get a contract with this company.

      Following a six-year battle, from organizing to completed contract, workers at XPO Logistics in Miami made history on Saturday, July 10 when they voted unanimously to ratify the first Teamsters contract at the transportation and logistics giant, which puts the workers’ rights and work lives in a legally binding written contract for the first time.

      “XPO management said workers in the U.S. would never ratify a contract, but never is now,” said Jim Hoffa, Teamsters General President. “I applaud the workers who stood strong and united over the past six years, despite the company’s horrific anti-worker actions and delays.”

      “This historic event is the result of nearly six years of bargaining, company law breaking, and delays by XPO, which purchased Con-way Freight in late 2015,” said Ernie Soehl, Director of the Teamsters National Freight Division.

      The drivers and dockworkers at the former Con-way Freight voted to join Local 769 in December 2014. While thousands of workers at XPO in Europe belong to unions, this is the first ever Teamster contract at the company and paves the way for more to come.

      “Workers have picketed, leafletted, filed labor charges, testified in court, filed lawsuits, conducted a ULP strike and more to win justice, and now that justice is here with the ratification of their first contract,” said Josh Zivalich, President of Teamsters Local 769 in Miami.

      “We remained strong, united and focused here in Miami and we never quit our fight for justice,” said Mike Zangrillo, a driver. “I urge my coworkers in other locations to fight for a fair contract and to not give up.”

      The contract includes “just-cause” protections, a grievance process, successorship language, job protection language and retirement protections, among other improvements.

      Creation of Federal Paid Day Off is Recognition of National Scourge of Slavery

      (WASHINGTON) – The following is a statement from Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa and Marcus King, Director of the Teamsters’ Human Rights and Diversity Commission, on the signing of legislation that would memorialize Juneteenth, the June 19 anniversary of the day in 1865 when enslaved African Americans in Texas were finally notified they had been freed as a result of the end of the Civil War two months earlier, as a paid federal holiday.

      “One year ago, in the wake of unjustified deadly actions taken by some members of law enforcement against Black Americans across the country, the Teamsters endorsed a Juneteenth federal holiday to recognize the day more than a century and a half ago when the last of those enslaved received their legal freedom. We are pleased to see President Biden and Congress follow through with its creation.

      “But just as real justice for African Americans didn’t result from that notification in 1865, the fight for equality doesn’t end here either. This union recognizes that we all must do more to ensure people of color can live their lives and have full access to the same rights and freedoms that so many of us enjoy without fear of reprisal. Creating a Juneteenth holiday doesn’t do that by itself, but it will continue America’s evolution towards truly bringing liberty and justice for all, and acknowledging our shared history.

      “For more than a century, the Teamsters have stood for racial equality. And we remain resolute in continuing to serve as leaders in ensuring that all workers, no matter their race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation, receive equal pay and protections on the job. That’s what this union can do to make sure our nation lives up to its promise.”

      UPS Teamsters Will Get A COLA Increase in 2021
