XPO Logistics drivers are being denied basic rights while their company reported their highest revenue in 2021. Now they’re leading a historic union drive to fight for their well-deserved rights.
Workers say they’re not paid for missing work due to COVID. As contract workers, they’re unable to apply for unemployment or receive benefits. And workers often end a full 40+ hour week owing the company money.
“They publicized how they are a strong company, but with a sense of humanity. Then act like it, because the company is very mean-spirited,” says one driver.
NRLB General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo wants to revive the Joy Silk Doctrine to support union drives. The doctrine would force employers to recognize a union where there’s majority support.
A victory could set a historic precedent for misclassified workers nationwide.
