New Officers in Pittsburgh

November 20, 2008: On Nov. 19, the 3,500 members of Local 249 voted current President Wayne Shatkoff out of office by a vote of 1,178 to 884.

The Respect, Experience, Dedication Slate (R.E.D. Slate), headed by Joe Rossi and made up of some of the existing executive board and rank and filers, won all ten positions.

Earlier this year, the Local 249 executive board found Shatkoff guilty of blacklisting members in the movie industry. Charges filed with the NLRB cost Local 249 well over $100,000.

Also dumped from office was Recording Secretary Ed Dini, a proponent of the failed DHL Master Agreement.
