    Default Aloise suspended from teamsters

    Rome Aloise is out of office, suspended from all positions, salaries, and power in the Teamsters Union for a period of two years, in a decision handed down on December 22.

    Hoffa will get to fill the International Vice President vacancy, with the approval of the General Executive Board; Seattle Joint Council 28 President Rick Hicks may be in line for it. Or, will Aloise, who calls himself “the most powerful man in the Teamsters,” demand that Hoffa leave the position vacant for him?

    Aloise was also removed as president of Joint Council 7 and Secretary Treasurer of Local 853.

    The removal is overdue: Aloise was first charged with serious crimes against the union and members 22 months ago, in February 2016.

    The sentence is lighter than expected: the Independent Investigations Officer (IIO) recommended banning him for life. That would be in line with previous punishments handed down, and would be the appropriate punishment for an International vice president caught taking gifts from employers during bargaining, signing sham contracts, and illegally rigging a local union election.

    That would be nice but I bet it won't happen.

    Judge Jones Issues New Order on Aloise

    Judge Barbara Jones has slapped the Hoffa administration, Joint Council 7 and Local 853 for defying her December 22 order suspending Rome Aloise on corruption charges. The judge issued a new order today, directing each of them to take corrective action.

    The judge’s order requires the Hoffa administration, Joint Council 7 and Local 853 to inform members via their websites that Aloise is suspended for two years for bringing reproach on the union. All three bodies had a blackout on the news, and continued to list Aloise as an official.

    Joint Council 7 also blatantly violated the Teamster constitution by claiming Aloise is still its President and refusing to fill the vacancy for the remainder of the term.

    After Teamsters for a Democratic Union blew the whistle on this violation, Judge Jones directed Joint Council 7 to announce a vacancy and move to fill the position by January 17.

    Aloise is not “on leave.” He has been thrown out of the union for two years on corruption charges.
