XPO ‘failed to honour promises to workers’

[ May 12, 2016   //   ]

The US Teamsters union says that XPO Logistics broke promises to not lay off any workers for at least 18 months after it took over Norbert Dentressangle. French workers and their unions have been facing attempts to slash jobs and that similar struggles are taking place in the UK and other parts of Europe. The union says that XPO has also subjected workers at another takeover target, Con-Way Freight in the US, to terminal closures, subcontracting and layoffs. On 11 May XPO workers from the US and Europe, along with union leaders, gathered outside the XPO Logistics shareholder meeting to call for chief executive Bradley Jacobs to meet with them to address a “laundry list” of serious concerns. Jacobs has ignored previous requests to meet, it said.
