You are a fool if you don't believe that every single union chapter in the country is not doing the same thing. This is typical union leadership behaviour...every industry, every state, every country. Other countries call it the 'cost of doing business'!! And the sheeple keep following...right off the fiscal cliff!
Great article. Sounds like a couple of yahoos who got caught. But obviously the IRB only had access to all this information because people inside the union saw the shenanigans and reported it. Good for the union.
This corruption is disgusting, but to believe it's like this in every union would be like believing every business is run by scammers like Tom Petters. It may be a convenient narrative for your worldview, yet it's completely false.
The "union" did not do all these terrible underhanded things - if you read the article, Brad Slawson Sr., Brad Slawson Jr. and the Local 120 Board did this - and it sounds like they have been removed from office and will have to face charges.
The fact that there is an organization to fight teamster corruption is disturbing. Like it happens so often that they are always needed. Wonder if they are unionized?
