Rome Aloise Needs Your Money

International vice president Rome Aloise, awaiting a verdict on corruption charges, wants your money – in more ways than you may know. 


First, he inflated his multiple salaries. But he wants more, so he suggests that you “donate generously…. up to $14,000” to his legal defense fund!

Aloise’s three salaries in 2016 totaled $319,880, with a total compensation of $383,462. That does not include multiple pensions and severance funds. That salary figure is nearly $10,000 over the maximum allowed in the IBT Constitution (Article V, Section 1(a)), which is equal to Hoffa’s salary of $309,927.

Aloise, who is nothing if not slick, has an explanation for this excess; he states in a footnote to the financial report that he took a vacation pay-out of $19,620, which put him over the legal limit.

Aloise’s defense fund states that Teamster members, other unions, and even “disinterested employers” should donate to his legal costs, up to $14,000 per donor.  

Note: Salary figures are from LM-2 financial reports filed by Aloise and the International Union with the U.S. Department of Labor.

Railroad Workers and Our Allies Must Unite in Support of Amtrak

In recent months, Trump has voiced support for massive investment in the nation’s infra-structure.
