Rerun Ordered in Florida Local 2011

Another Hoffa Vice President has been caught stealing a Convention Delegate election.

Judge Kathleen Roberts has ordered a rerun election for ten delegates and alternates in Florida Local 2011, which represents Teamsters statewide at the Florida Department of Corrections (FDOC).

Only two local unions have been caught cheating in delegate elections, and both are headed by Hoffa’s International vice presidents! That’s no coincidence.

Local 2011 does not have elected officers. It is under Trusteeship and International VP Ken Wood has been its unelected Trustee for four years.

The FDOC Teamsters United team supports holding an election for officers, and making the union accountable to its members.

Judge Roberts ruled that the Hoffa “FDOC Teamster Strong” slate used union resources to tip the balance in a close delegate election. Members have won the right to a free and fair rerun election.

Last week, Judge Roberts affirmed a decision to rerun the Local 572 election in Los Angeles, where International VP Rick Middleton’s Hoffa slate was caught colluding with employers to steal another close election. 

The 10,000 members of Local 572 are getting a free and fair rerun too.

When union officers think that the union’s purpose is to protect their jobs instead of the members’ jobs, it’s time for new leadership.

    I am really shocked to find out that after 30+ years of federal gov’t oversight that the Teamster’s Union is still filled with cheats, crooks and guys who want to keep our pension monies for their own piggybank.

    OTOH, maybe they just learned new tricks from the cheats, crooks and guys who want to keep our tax monies for their own piggybanks.

    The incumbent Senators and Representatives as well as the cheats and crooks who run CSPF should all be kicked out of office and be behind bars.

    I got an email about how the Congress works. If they don’t know a roll call vote is coming up so we will know how they vote; as many as 12 reps can pass a billion $ foreign aid bill into law. There is still a law about a quorum but they disregard it. Some times they vote on a billion $ spending bill by a voice vote as they are heading out the door. Those A$$holes get $174,000 a year or more for a 3-4 day workweek and all the insider trading deals on stocks etc, that they can make. This is the main reason they can go to Congress and be millionaires in a few years!!! This came from Eaglerising by way of Freedom Outpost.

    Don’t vote for your incumbent this next time around. Time to weed out these crooks.
