Pat Flynn Cuts a Deal: Kicked out for Eight Years

Pat Flynn, the former head of Chicago Local 710 who was charged with embezzling union funds via gift credit cards for members, has cut a deal with the IRB: pay the union back $58,000 and an eight-year ban from holding any Teamster position or salary.

The settlement agreement will in all likelihood end Flynn’s career. But the future of Local 710 is in the hands of the members
