Warehouse operator that replaced union workers sues Schnucks
The company hired by Schnuck Markets to run its new nonunion distribution center in Kinloch is suing the grocer for breach of contract and seeking more than $1.3 million.
XPO Logistics claims in a lawsuit filed in federal court in St. Louis that the opening of the facility, located in the NorthPark business park near St. Louis Lambert International Airport, was rushed, giving it insufficient time to train its new workers.
The lawsuit, which was filed on Feb. 17, also alleges the new facility had leaking roofs, nonfunctioning employee bathrooms and condensation issues in a produce shipping area.
“These and other deficiencies impeded XPO’s ability to properly perform its warehouse management services,” XPO states in its lawsuit. “The presence of numerous outside contractors at the facility who were continuing to work on these deficiencies further hampered XPO’s ability to properly perform its warehouse management services.”
The comment by the head of the Teamsters Union representing the employees from the old warehouse that were laid off when this facility was opened is priceless.
