    No, I have friends there who told me about it. He's on unpaid leave pending review by safety. The truck was towed back and put behind shop. It's not driveable.

    FedEx records another victory over Teamsters

    In the span of two weeks, FedEx has recorded its second victory over the Teamsters union. FedEx Freight — a subsidiary of Memphis-based FedEx Corp. — announced July 19 that city and road drivers in Croydon, Pennsylvania, voted to decertify the Teamsters union as their bargaining representative. The Croydon drivers elected to join the Teamsters Local 107 in October 2014. Drivers at a FedEx Freight service center in Charlotte also recently voted to decertify from the Teamsters. Following that outcome, Joe Eason, president of Teamsters Local 71 — which serves members in North and South Carolina — released a July 14 letter that stated, “We knew going in it would be a hard fight, but the asinine arrogance...

    Muler, you nailed it. That is exactly what should have happened. And ballots mailed Registered Letter the day after the vote. But for whatever reason the International failed to do their homework or even show up for class. Either way they hurt the workers who wanted to work under a CBA & the Image of the Teamsters in General.

    I will never say that I am smart but the way they went about it was all wrong. I would have two votes at the same time one to join and the other would be to vote on a already agreed to contract that the members have already decided on. This would stop fedex in they're tracks at many different levels. Then I would issue a strike vote in the shortest time possible after the said vote.

    At this point all the workers would know they would be entitled to back pay as soon as the agreed to contract was settled if they kept working. So the Teamsters would have at least two fronts on which to fight fedex that would benefit the workers. Not to leave out the fact of the pension and health payments fedex would owe all the said members. Just a couple of thoughts.

    ADMINISTRATIVE LAW JUDGE ORDERS SYSCO TO BARGAIN WITH TEAMSTERS IN GRAND RAPIDS

    NLRB Judge Upholds 79 Unfair Labor Practice Charges Filed By Union

    (WASHINGTON)-On March 2, 2017, an admistrative law judge with the National Labor Relations Board ordered Sysco to begin bargaining with Teamsters Local 406 in Grand Rapids, Michigan after he found that the company threatened, intimidated and unlawfully punished workers during an organizing campaign in 2015.

    The workers lost an election held May 7, 2015 by 11 votes. The adminitrative law judge found the evidence established that a majority of Sysco's Grand Rapids employees supported Local 406 prior to the election but Sysco's extensive and unfair labor practices 'were sufficiently severe so as to erode the majority support that the union had acquired." As a result, the judge issued an order directing Sysco to begin negotiating a contract with Local 406.

    'This is great news for the Sysco workers who had to endure an unbelievable onslaught of threats and intimidation for exercising their federally protected right to organize, 'said Ellis Wood, Secretary-Treasurer and Principle Officer of Local 406. 'I look forward to finally being able to negotiate a contract for the Sysco workers so that they can address the issues that are important to them."

    The administrative law judge upheld the 79 unfair labor practice charges filed by Local 406, which include the company's threats to close the plant down if they organized, threats to impose more stringent work rules, threats of loss of seniority and the company reducing the hours of those who supported the union drive.

    'The judge also ruled that it must reinstate a worker who was fired two years ago with full back pay and benefits, which will be in excess of $200,000, " said Terry Hoogerhyde, Local 406 Recording Secretary and Business Agent.

    'We are pleased that the administrative law judge recognized that Sysco went to great lengths to bully its workers in Grand Rapids, 'said Steve Vairma, Director of the Teamsters Warehouse Division. 'It's time forSysco to now bargain fairly and treat its workers with respect and dignity."

    NLRB Revokes Union Certification at FedEx Freight Terminal

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. --(BUSINESS WIRE)--FedEx Freight, the industry leader in less-than-truckload transportation, and a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), announced that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has issued an order officially revoking the certification of the Teamsters union as the bargaining representative of city and road drivers at the FedEx Freight location in Monmouth Junction, N. J.

    This order is a result of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 701 disclaiming interest in representing the FedEx Freight employees in this location. The revocation comes on the heels of FedEx Freight drivers in Croydon, Pa., and Charlotte, N. C., voting the union out.

    To date, at three of the four FedEx Freight locations that originally voted for Teamster representation, the Union has either been decertified by employee vote or voluntarily decided not to continue as bargaining representative.

    'Our thriving and open work environment provides a flexible, team-oriented and customer-focused work model, and our people-service-profit philosophy remains at the core of our success and forms the foundation of the unparalleled service that FedEx delivers daily to our customers worldwide,” said Michael L. Ducker, president and CEO of FedEx Freight.

    Unions have positives and negatives, but overall I can't imagine not having one where I work. The last non-union job I had was for about four months in 2010. The owner decided we were getting paid too much shortly after I was hired, and drastically slashed pay.

    I probably would have liked working there if the pay had been right. At least the job got me home every day. But making me drive around the airport all morning basically for free didn't really sit well with me. It didn't last long. Lol
