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.

    Soo Rome collects multiple salaries till…the 4th of July,
    or maybe labor day !
    If judgment is not in his favor..what do the members get to offset the
    income he enjoyed for betrayals.
    If not $$ returned to the IBT, how about Hoffa and his Consigliere vacate along with a legal binding agreement no Hoffas can hold office for the 18+years he has escaped accountability ,
    for the serial racketeering he has skirted since he first ran with Chicagos notorious racketeering Hogan family!

    $$ SCHEMESTER STARS out of LOVE $$

    This reminds me my TDU yearly membership is due ..,
    A much more reasonable use of $$..after all this skidmark
    in labors shorts..would be left holding the IBT TREASURY Vault
    Open for the interloper parasite lawyers to glutton endlessly.
    Without the knowledge this site offers ,information would flow in
    Agonizing , undependable whispers his sycophants would easily counter.
    Rome can take his current plight & a pair of leather chaps to HYDE & POLK
    Street for Eager donations. I’m sure he’ll find tender mercies in the world
