The Teamsters union has withdrawn its petition to represent 24 XPO Logistics Inc. drivers in Erie, Pa., the transport and logistics provider said.
The decision to withdraw the petition came on Friday, Greenwich, Conn.-based XPO said yesterday. A Teamster spokesman did not respond today to an e-mail request for comment.
In May, drivers at the facility filed for representation with Teamster Local 397. Generally, a union will withdraw a petition for representation when it doesn't feel it has enough votes to prevail.
