I am a little confused by this because I thought the Teamsters were no longer under the umbrella of the AFL-CIO.

A labor federation encompassing 165 affiliated local and regional unions has re-elected its top officers to three-year terms.

Richard Lipsitz Jr. of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters will continue to serve as president of the Western New York Area Labor Federation, AFL-CIO. His new term runs until March 2018; Lipsitz and the three other officers ran unopposed. The federation is an umbrella group that covers unions with about 125,000 dues-paying members, stretching as far east as Batavia and as far south as Jamestown.
