    Default Rome Aloise: Guilty as Charged

    After stonewalling corruption charges for more than a year and a half, Rome Aloise, Hoffa’s main power-broker in the West, has been found guilty of all charges in a 60-page decision by Judge Barbara Jones.

    Aloise solicited tickets to an exclusive Super Bowl Playboy party from an employer that he was bargaining with; he used his union influence at two employers to force them to hire his cousin; he negotiated a sham union contract with an investment broker friend; and he illegally used union resources and power to ensure the election of his supporter in Local 601.

    Judge Jones, the Independent Review Officer, ruled that, “The evidence supports the charges against Aloise, and that Aloise brought reproach upon the union.”

    Jones did not issue a punishment with her decision. Instead she requested submissions from Aloise and Independent Investigations Officer on what the appropriate penalty should be. This will take a month or more.

    So what's the appropriate penalty? Anyone care to take a guess? Will Hoffa have any say? A few lashes from a wet noodle? A trip to a non extradition country?

    Hoffa will send him east and make him a regional VP.. Kinda like what he did with Murphy after he basically put Redstar out on strike and wound up closing but Murphy months later was named to head the rail division.. Yes loyalty has its rewards..

    You can't blame Hoffa for the Red Star strike. He was out of town on other important union business. Maybe he working on the planned Overnite / UPSF stand alone contract. No it couldn't be that because Ernie told me it was Ken Hall's fault they didn't go into the NMFA.

    As for Aloise he will be severely punished. He will be banned from the union and have to struggle financially in retirement while collecting his multiple Teamster pensions. That with whatever he was able to scrimp and save during his many years of dedicated service to his union brothers.
