Con-way Freight currently does not have a contract with any union
A union representation election at Con-way Freight's Oakland maintenance facility, located in Hayward, CA, was cancelled when the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Union notified the National Labour Relations Board that it was withdrawing its petition for election.
The union had petitioned for a vote to represent mechanics at the Oakland maintenance shop. Unions often withdraw petitions for elections when they don't believe they have enough votes to win.
The withdrawal of the election petition for the Oakland maintenance shop marked the second defeat for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Union in its attempts to organise Con-way Freight mechanics. The union had earlier lost a representation election at a Con-way Freight facility in Indiana.
Con-way Freight currently does not have a contract with any union at any of its nearly 300 locations in the US.
