    Well Cf brothers & sisters it's looking like there gone in name anyway reports are XPO logistic has drop a around 3 billion to buy them.I'd just about bet they wanted the Menlo logistics part more than the LTL freight side but had to take both to get the other I'd say you'll see cut backs on the freight side starting next year all i say is bye bye Con-way 33 years too long for me and just a few day past labor day too born 1982 DIE 2015.

    Proud CFer for 10 years. Best place I've ever worked. They sucked CF dry.

    Why didn't you CF drivers strike 3-4 yrs into con jobs start up? Tell me you didn't understand what was coming at you?Was pointing the finger at everyone else easier? Or was it too hard to point it at Yourselves.........Just sayin.........

    On the basis That organized labor had strength still in 83, legal wise, sure there's issues,but with your jobs on the line you guys had no choice.Sad but true you had no real leader ship either,Presser,what a joke.If the real Jimmy Hoffa was in charge.......CF still be here..........Never would have been a Con Job. I would have had a nice onion job........Just my thoughts.....I'm retired 36 yrs trailer truckin.......31 with Con-Job...... Not an easy thing to do I might add.Merry Christmas to you driver.

    We'd love to had and ask to strike but IBT said no you have no right too. Yes we all Know-ed there plan from the beginning and I told A Con-Way VP that to his face but i did my best to make sure they didn't grow with my help I never help them get on pound of freight and I'm very proud of that.
