XPO Logistics drivers in Albany, New York filed for Teamster representation Friday, Dec. 22, with Local 294.
The 34 drivers at the former Con-way Freight seek to join XPO freight workers in Laredo, Texas; Vernon, California; Miami, Florida.; Aurora, Illinois; King of Prussia, Pennsylvania., and Trenton, New Jersey and warehouse workers in North Haven, Connecticut who have already joined the Teamsters.
John Bulgaro, president of Local 294 in Albany, said XPO workers in Albany reached out to the union “because they are tired of having no say on the job. We look forward to helping these workers form their union and then negotiate a first contract that improves their livelihoods.”
