Employees at Con-Way Freight in Miami voted to join the Teamsters yesterday and Teamsters Local 769 would like to congratulate our newest members.

Local 769 President and Principal Officer Mike Scott said of the victory, “I am so proud of our newest members. These men and women took on their employer for a better life for their families. Welcome to the Teamsters.”

This was a hard fought battle for a brighter future and has been another in a wave of victories at Fed-Ex Freight and other Con-Way locations. Employees were fighting for dignity and respect in the workplace and after years of abuse they took another step today toward a strong contract and a voice in their workplace.

Josh Zivalich, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 769 said, ” Congratulations to our newest members from Con-Way Freight. We hope the succes of their struggle continues to give hope to others in this wave of unionization accross the country.”

Great Job and welcome Con-Way Freight members!
