Teamsters Add Another Overnite Terminal
August 16, 1999
The National Labor Relations Board has certified Overnite Transportation's Lexington terminal for Teamster representation.
Although the election choosing the Teamsters as the bargaining representative for the terminal was won in April 1996, the certification was delayed because Overnite challenged the election. The company charged that because workers were taking pictures during the voting, workers were intimidated.
The Teamsters now represent 24 certified Overnite terminals, with one other terminal awaiting certification. Eleven more terminals have been assigned bargaining orders by the NLRB.
