    Default Why Hoffa Can't Clean Up Corruption

    Hoffa came into office 17 years ago promising to run a clean, democratic union. But with an International VP facing racketeering charges, Hoffa is circling the wagons. Why Hoffa can't kick the corruption habit.
    On February 10, International Vice President Rome Aloise—Hoffa’s chief operative in the West—was hit with 122 pages of corruption charges by the Independent Review Board, involving almost every conceivable labor crime, including:

    racketeering

    requesting things of value from employers during negotiations

    taking employers’ gifts, including admissions to Playboy’s Super Bowl Party for Hoffa’s Executive assistant and his friends

    trying to leverage jobs for his relatives from employers, including UPS, Costco and others during labor negotiations

    negotiating a sham collective bargaining agreement

    using union resources to punish political opponents and prevent a fair Teamster election
    Why Hoffa Can

    Doesn't help that Ed Stiers, who was brought in to identify and eliminate corruption, was fired by Hoffa when he DID find things gone awry, because they involved people who supported our Fearless Leader.

    How's Rome Aloise running on the Hoffa slate look right about now?

    It's pretty disgusting if the allegations are true. The unions have been going backwards for so many decades.....yet these selfish bastards get in there and think they can live like kings on our money.
    I can only hope the flames of Hell are very, very hot.
