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.

Hoffa Refuses to Hold Executive Board Meetings

Teamster members elected a full General Executive Board last November. Now Hoffa refuses to hold regular meetings claiming that “past practice” dictates that he’s not required to hold GEB meetings. This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
