Dues Money Funds Vacations for BLET President’s Wife

October 18, 2006. Don Hahs, President of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers Division of the Teamster Rail Conference, has spent more than $6,000 flying his wife to Alaska for a cruise, footing the bill for her airfare to various events, and paying for her meals on trips, according to documents obtained by TDU.

Other expenses for which Hahs has obtained reimbursement include use of a hotel mini-bar and in-room movies. Hahs, who receives a $35 daily “at home allowance” for time spent in Cleveland, also appears to have claimed the allowance for some days that he claimed reimbursement for hotel expenses in Washington, D.C.

Hoffa has an opportunity to prove to BLET members that he won’t let their dues money be used in this way—will he investigate and take appropriate action?
