Sweetheart Deals

Hoffa’s original running mate Bill Hogan, Jr. was banned from our union by the IRB after he was caught engineering a sweetheart deal with a nonunion temp agency to undercut Teamster convention workers. The scheme would have slashed wages to $8 and eliminated all benefits.

CHECK THE FACTS: Independent Review Board Decision barring Billy Hogan and Dane Passo, May 20, 2002 and decision of Judge Loretta Preska, August 22, 2003.

    In hindsight..I think #631may have been better off if the sweet heart contract the parasite gangsters sought ,had gone their way.
    In retaliation for getting the Hogan turd kicked out..
    Our healthcare was underfunded in short order, much like the IBT.letting UPS out of central States pension.Then seniority was dissolved just as a ambitious apprentice program was started so a 2 tier wage scheme entered the mix.
    I did I mention this coincided with 9\11. When the economy tanked.
    Hoffa’s trustee was creating a ‘new’ membership from whole cloth.
    You gotta give credit where its due. These are some of the top racketeers this side of Wall street!!

    This was the tipping point in lost credibility and honest intentions from IBT officials.
    A steady decline..Hoffa came into office with gangsters …I guess he will leave with this legacy of criminality.
