Read the International Union Financial Report

April 1, 2009: The LM-2 financial report for the International Union is now available. This report was filed with the U.S. Department of Labor on March 31, and covers the year 2008.

A quick review of the report indicates that

  • The union had a net loss of 22,000 members in 2008.
  • Hoffa and other IBT officers received a substantial raise in salary.
  • The IBT lost $47 million in assets during 2008. Spending exceeded income, there were losses in investments, and liabilities for officers’ pensions increased.

The Teamster Rank & File Education and Legal Defense Foundation (TRF) will conduct a study of union finances and officers salaries in the coming weeks and months. This will cover locals and other Teamster affiliates as well as the International Union.
