Attorneys for the National Labor Relations Board and the Teamsters Union will present oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., next Thursday, June 8, in support of a decision against Overnite Transportation.

The decision, which was issued November 1999, ordered Overnite to pay wages that had been withheld from Teamster-represented workers. The Teamsters were also awarded bargaining orders at four Overnite terminals giving them the rights to represent the workers at the locations. Overnite appealed the decision.
The Teamsters, who have been trying to organize the less-than-truckload carrier for five years, have been waging an unfair labor practices strike against Overnite since last October.
