March 31, 2014: Unlike many Teamsters, James Hoffa got a nice raise last year. His salary went up by $4,000 to $300,788. But there’s more: His “housing allowance” ballooned to $67,358, so his total compensation went up to $381,409. Ken Hall gets that outsized perk also; Halls’s total compensation was $301,519.
Their appointees and International vice presidents got similar “cost of living” raises, according to the union’s LM-2 2013 financial report just filed with the U.S. Department of Labor.
Our union remained the same size as the year previous: 1.258 million.
You can review the financial report of your local union. These LM-2 reports were required to be filed by March 31.
The Teamster Rank & File Education and Legal Defense Foundation (TRF) will research all Teamster LM-2 (and LM-3 and IRS 990) forms and will publish the results later this year.
We believe knowledge is power, and we provide it to the members. You can review a summary of last year’s report.
