Hoffa Gets a Raise

March 31, 2014: Unlike many Teamsters, James Hoffa got a nice raise last year. His salary went up by $4,000 to $300,788. But there’s more: His “housing allowance” ballooned to $67,358, so his total compensation went up to $381,409. Ken Hall gets that outsized perk also; Halls’s total compensation was $301,519.

Their appointees and International vice presidents got similar “cost of living” raises, according to the union’s LM-2 2013 financial report just filed with the U.S. Department of Labor.

Our union remained the same size as the year previous: 1.258 million.

You can review the financial report of your local union. These LM-2 reports were required to be filed by March 31.   

The Teamster Rank & File Education and Legal Defense Foundation (TRF) will research  all Teamster LM-2 (and LM-3 and IRS 990) forms and will publish the results later this year.

We believe knowledge is power, and we provide it to the members. You can review a summary of last year’s report

If you have questions or comments, contact TDU. If you want to help change our union’s financial priorities from officers’ perks to rank and file power, then Join TDU.
