Workers at Overnite Transportation's terminal in Southborough, MA have filed a petition for Teamster representation, according to the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. An Overnite worker said the majority of the workers there are in favor of Teamster representation at this time, according to the Teamsters.

Overnite is the trucking subsidiary of Union Pacific Corporation.
