    TEAMSTERS LOCAL 710 - Home

    Please be advised that on July 18, 2014, the Independent Review Board (IRB)
    issued a report recommending that Teamsters Local 710 be placed into
    trusteeship. Based on that report, Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa has placed Local 710 into International Trusteeship, effective July 30, 2014.

    "The ABC7 I-Team has learned a top labor leader has been removed and his large teamsters local placed into trusteeship after an investigation of widespread financial misconduct. Teamsters officials call it an embezzlement scheme involving well-known Local 710 leader Patrick W. Flynn, who hails from a longtime Chicago labor family. The corruption runs so deep, according to union officials, that secretary treasurer Flynn has been removed from his post along with the local's president and other top officers."

    IRB Charges All Local 710 Officers
    August 21, 2014: The Independent Review Board (IRB) has moved to bring charges against all the officers of Chicago Local 710. According to the report of charges dated August 15, all members of the Executive Board violated their fiduciary duty when they repeatedly approved the purchase of excess visa gift cards under the control of Local Secretary Treasurer Pat Flynn.

    Flynn was charged in July, and on July 30 the local was put into trusteeship following a recommendation by the IRB. Those actions are detailed here.

    The new charges hit Local 710 president Mike Sweeney and fellow officers Gerald Pauli, Charles DeCola, Larry Alexander, Anthony Lamy, and Kevin Wagoner. They were already removed from office when the trusteeship was imposed. Now they face a hearing and possible expulsion or suspension from Teamster membership.

    If they get expelled do they lose their pensions? Are we still allowed to interact with them?

    Of course, how do think the two cowards, Hoffa and Hall are going to try to make sure they stay in power? 1. Get a judge to end the consent decree, thereby ending fair elections, and 2. put all the big locals you know will have their members vote against you in the next election in trusteeship so none of those locals can elect delegates at the next convention!

    That's basically what I told people over here when our president/PO made some unwise fiduciary activities and my local was put into trusteeship. Fortunately we're going to have elections in a few months and get out from underneath H/H's thumbs. Our trustee is travelling a lot to Chicago...I wonder if he's going to be helping run 710? (Hopefully so, since I've heard talk of his wanting to run for office here, and few of us want to have him in our local...)
