Cashing In While Central States Pensions Burned

lichtenwald-hoffa_thumb.jpg

Bill Lichtenwald’s close friendship with Hoffa has paid off—literally. Lichtenwald collected multiple union salaries, pensions as a local officer, the President of the Ohio Conference of Teamsters and a trustee of the Central States Pension Plan. Last September a 59-page IRB report exposed that the Ohio Conference exists for the purpose of paying extra salaries. Lichtenwald has resigned from the Central States Pension Fund under pressure from the US Department of Labor. To date, Hoffa has made no move to abolish the Ohio Conference.
