FedEx Freight Workers Reject Teamsters in N.J. Vote

October 14, 2014

FedEx Freight drivers at the Cinnaminson, New Jersey, terminal have voted against becoming Teamsters in the first-ever unionization vote at the nation’s largest less-than-truckload company, the company said.

A second election is taking place Oct. 14 at a FedEx Freight terminal in Philadelphia. FedEx Freight released a statement about the N.J. vote, but a vote count wasn’t disclosed.

The union has been seeking to make inroads at FedEx Freight and Con-way Freight, with multiple union representation elections that have either been scheduled by the National Labor Relations Board or sought by the union.

Con-way workers voted in favor of a union in Laredo, Texas, last month. Union representation votes are taken on a terminal-by-terminal basis, and the outcome at one facility doesn’t affect the status of workers at other locations.
