Union rejected at Con-way Freight in Oregon

Employees at Con-way Freight’s Portland, Or. maintenance facility last week rejected an organizing effort by the Teamsters.

The election was conducted by the National Labor Relations Board Friday (Aug. 21).

“I want to thank our employees for the thorough and careful consideration they gave to this matter and for voting to remain union-free,” said Joseph M. Dagnese, president of Con-way Freight,. “We continue to believe that our best path forward is one where we are focused on our customers, working together directly with our employees to deliver a superior service experience, without the interference of a third party.”

Con-way Freight, a subsidiary of Con-way Inc. located in Ann Arbor, Mich., does not have a contract with a union at any of its nearly 300 locations in the U.S.
