NOW IS THE TIME TO ORGANIZE XPO!!

Vice President Don Brewster, Business Representative/ Organizer Bobby Block, Organizer Stan Brown and Staff/ Volunteer Organizers were at the XPO Orange Terminal leafleting information about XPO CEO Bradley Jacobs. Jacobs and XPO are the poster children for cooperate greed. Jacobs received a 481% increase in salary to nearly $6 Million per year all off the workers' backs.

If you are a worker of XPO or would like to volunteer your time in eliminating corporate greed to allow workers to have a voice and a fair living, contact one of our organizers: Stan Brown (714) 501-6106 or Bobby Block (714) 740-6238.

TEAMSTERS FIGHT,  TEAMSTERS WIN!
