Today drivers took the first step toward forming one strong union at Hallcon. The majority of drivers under 707 have signed petitions joining UE, and today UE filed those petitions with the National Labor Relations Board.
Within the next several weeks the Labor Board will set a date for an election for drivers to choose whether they want to be represented by 707, handpicked company union, or the real union that fights for drivers: UE. The election will cover all drivers currently in 707, including drivers in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin.
By joining together at the bargaining table with 1000 Hallcon drivers already in UE, we will have the power to negotiate a strong contract with the raises, benefits, and rights we deserve. We all work for one company, we belong in one union!
We will keep you posted as things develop!
