Family Business

Joseph-Coli-kid-lawyer_thumb.jpg

The Teamsters Union has been a lucrative family business for the Coli family. Together, Coli, his son, and his brother make over $859,000 a year from our union. A fourth Coli, Joseph, was hired to be the exclusive provider of legal services by the Local 727 Legal Assistance Plan. The baby-faced Coli was two months out of law school at the time of his hire and was paid $2 million in his first 14 months on the job—nearly twice as much as the previous firm charged.
