Con-way Freight reported that its employees voted to reject representation by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters at their Portland, Oregon terminal.
“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,” said Joseph Dagnese, president of Con-way, regarding the vote.
This is the latest battle in the Teamster’s efforts to organize one of the nation’s largest for-hire carriers. Con-way has won seven elections while the Teamsters have won three, though Con-way says that they do not currently have union contracts at any of their nearly 300 locations.
