The $300,000 Club

April 2, 2014: Hoffa and his number two Ken Hall raked in more than $300,000 a piece in total compensation last year according to the IBT LM-2 financial report reviewed by TDU.

Hoffa gave himself a Cost of Living increase of $4,000. Most Teamsters don’t see anything resembling that.

Hoffa’s “housing allowance” ballooned to $67,358, bringing his total compensation to $381,409.  Ken Hall also gets that outsized perk.  They work in the Marble Palace; do they live in one too?

Hall’s total compensation was $301,519.

Our union remained the same size as the year previous: 1.258 million.
