Hoffa Can't Kick the Corruption Habit

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.

Central States Pension Fund Expects $35 Billion Grant Soon

The Central States Pension Fund, according to the latest quarterly financial report, has $7.4 billion in assets, and continues to decline. But help is arriving soon. The Fund filed an application on April 28 for $35.1 billion in a grant to protect Teamsters’ earned pensions at least through 2051, and hopefully well beyond that.

UPDATE: The Central States Fund now reports that they resubmitted a revised application on August 12 to the PBGC, and expects a decision within 120 days (by December 10). A favorable decision is all but assured, so the needed funds to protect all pensions at least through 2051 will follow. This delay should not cause any interruption in pension payments, as the Fund has sufficient money on hand for a few more years.
