Teamsters get seven more Overnite terminals

Aug. 23, 2001
The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has been allowed to represent seven more Overnite Transportation Co. terminals, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) said. The decision is an affirmation of a legal decision issued in 1999, which ordered Overnite to begin bargaining with the seven terminals. Overnite had appealed that decision to the NLRB. Teamster-represented workers have been striking

Teamster-represented workers have been striking against Richmond VA-based Overnite, the LTL subsidiary of rail giant Union Pacific Corp., for more almost two years as the Teamsters seek to make Overnite’s workforce unionized. The Teamster’s reportedly now represent 36 of Overnite’s terminals and roughly 45% of the company’s drivers and dockworkers.
