Rome Aloise Needs Your Money

International vice president Rome Aloise, awaiting a verdict on corruption charges, wants your money – in more ways than you may know.

First, he inflated his multiple salaries. But he wants more, so he suggests that you “donate generously…. up to $14,000” to his legal defense fund!

Aloise’s three salaries in 2016 totaled $319,880, with a total compensation of $383,462. That does not include multiple pensions and severance funds. That salary figure is nearly $10,000 over the maximum allowed in the IBT Constitution (Article V, Section 1(a)), which is equal to Hoffa’s salary of $309,927.

Aloise, who is nothing if not slick, has an explanation for this excess; he states in a footnote to the financial report that he took a vacation pay-out of $19,620, which put him over the legal limit.

Aloise’s defense fund states that Teamster members, other unions, and even “disinterested employers” should donate to his legal costs, up to $14,000 per donor.  

Note: Salary figures are from LM-2 financial reports filed by Aloise and the International Union with the U.S. Department of Labor.
