Rerun Ordered in Florida Local 2011

Another Hoffa Vice President has been caught stealing a Convention Delegate election.

Judge Kathleen Roberts has ordered a rerun election for ten delegates and alternates in Florida Local 2011, which represents Teamsters statewide at the Florida Department of Corrections (FDOC).

Only two local unions have been caught cheating in delegate elections, and both are headed by Hoffa’s International vice presidents! That’s no coincidence.

Local 2011 does not have elected officers. It is under Trusteeship and International VP Ken Wood has been its unelected Trustee for four years.

The FDOC Teamsters United team supports holding an election for officers, and making the union accountable to its members.

Judge Roberts ruled that the Hoffa “FDOC Teamster Strong” slate used union resources to tip the balance in a close delegate election. Members have won the right to a free and fair rerun election.

Last week, Judge Roberts affirmed a decision to rerun the Local 572 election in Los Angeles, where International VP Rick Middleton’s Hoffa slate was caught colluding with employers to steal another close election. 

The 10,000 members of Local 572 are getting a free and fair rerun too.

When union officers think that the union’s purpose is to protect their jobs instead of the members’ jobs, it’s time for new leadership.
