Drivers at XPO Logistics in Aurora, Illinois Choose Teamster Representation
Posted On: Oct 13, 2016

Workers Want Decent, Affordable Health Care and Retirement Security

(AURORA, Ill.) – Drivers at XPO Logistics in suburban Chicago voted for Teamster representation yesterday, as workers across the country stand shoulder-to-shoulder to fight for fairness and respect at the one of the world’s largest transportation and logistics companies.

The 74 drivers at the former Con-way Freight join workers in Miami; Laredo, Texas; and Vernon, Calif. who have already formed their union with the Teamsters. In addition, 127 XPO warehouse workers in North Haven, Conn. also voted for Teamster representation yesterday, and workers at XPO in King of Prussia, Pa. filed for an election on Oct. 11.

“The workers at XPO in Aurora and in North Haven, Conn. sent the company a message that ‘enough is enough,’” said Tyson Johnson, Director of the Teamsters Freight Division. “The workers are tired of being mistreated and not having a say in their work lives.”

“It’s a new day here in Aurora because the workers took the bold step of forming their union as Teamsters,” said Tom Flynn, President of Local 179 in Joliet, Ill. “We will work hard to negotiate a contract that addresses their issues.”

“Our victory is important to all of us because we have seen how XPO operates since taking over Con-way Freight,” said Cliff Phillips, a driver in Aurora. “XPO is treating us unfairly, denying us any voice on the job and just seems interested in the bottom line. But now we will fight back as Teamsters!”

The Aurora workers are seeking affordable and decent health care, retirement security, better working conditions and respect and dignity on the job. XPO is the second-largest freight brokerage provider and second-largest less-than-truckload carrier in North America.

Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents 1.4 million hardworking men and women throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. For more information, please visit www.teamster.org.
