Employees at the Buffalo, N.Y. Con-way Freight facility Wednesday (April 22) voted to reject union representation by the Teamsters.
The Buffalo vote is the sixth election in past years in which Con-way employees have rejected the Teamsters.
“We are gratified by the vote of our Buffalo employees and the statement of confidence it represents in our company and our union-free philosophy,” said Lehmkuhl. “We continue to believe that our path to success lies in maintaining an open, respectful and direct relationship with our employees without the interference of a third party.”
The Buffalo vote follows Teamsters defeats in elections at Con-way Freight facilities in Santa Fe Springs, San Fernando Valley and Bakersfield, CA, Manchester, NH and Harlingen, TX. The Teamsters also withdrew petitions for votes at Con-way Freight’s facilities in Irvine, CA and Orlando, FL.
