IBT Election Protest Update

As of the beginning of August, the Election Supervisor has still not issued a decision on the appeal by Teamsters United to rerun the IBT Election of November 2016, due to a massive use of union resources to tip the outcome of the election.

The Election Supervisor initially ruled against the Teamsters United protest in February, but on March 28, Judge Kathleen Roberts, the Election Appeals Master, directed the Election Supervisor to investigate the charge of using union resources to delay the 2016 investigations by the Independent Investigations Officer, to avoid adverse decisions against Hoffa’s running mates.

The on-going corruption revelations show the importance of the Teamsters United protest. All Teamsters members – whoever they support – deserve a fair election between Hoffa-Hall and the Fred Zuckerman Teamsters United team.
