Union Succeeds at Getting Employee Rehired, Wins Grievance Over Unjust Termination with CDT

| May 9, 2018

Teamsters Local 727 filed a grievance against the new owners of CDT, National Express, over a customer service representative who was unjustly terminated because of alleged dropped calls that the Company could not prove fault for.

Due to the Union’s persistent efforts, an agreement with CDT management was reached that allowed the customer service representative to return to work.

“Preserving jobs is our top priority as a Union and we are very proud of our track record with this Company,” said John Coli Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727. “Because we were alerted to this unjust discipline early and were able to swiftly expedite the grievance, this member was able to return to work.”

Coli added that one of the most important parts of being represented by the Teamsters is having a collective bargaining agreement that provides protection against unjust terminations and disciplines. It gives employees the right to representation and a grievance process. “The grievance and arbitration process is the cornerstone of a strong Teamster contract. It provides crucial job protection for our members by giving the Union a clear-cut way to enforce the contract and hold management accountable any time they violate it,” Coli said.

Any CDT employee who believes CDT is not following the collective bargaining agreement should never hesitate to contact Union Business Representative Donnie Von Moore, at (773) 403-1032 or [email protected].
