Orlando Local 385 in Trusteeship – Time for Members to Organize

Orlando Local 385 was placed into trusteeship yesterday, following numerous complaints of poor representation, failure to take a vote on a contract Memorandum of Understanding, decertifications by 500 members and threats by some Disney World Teamsters to quit the union.

A hearing was held on March 30 regarding a possible trusteeship.  Hoffa has appointed International Rep Mike McElmury as the Trustee of the 8000-member local, and Greg Alden as the Assistant Trustee.
