    Default Hoffa And Cronies Get A Raise

    As posted by capmac48 in another thread

    https://www.tdu.org/news/hoffa-gets-raise

    March 31, 2014: Unlike many Teamsters, James Hoffa got a nice raise last year. His salary went up by $4,000 to $300,788. But there’s more: His “housing allowance” ballooned to $67,358, so his total compensation went up to $381,409. Ken Hall gets that outsized perk also; Halls’s total compensation was $301,519
    Thanks capmac48

    Going to play devils advocate here and not many are going to like this but that is a very modest raise for handling how many different trade divisions?

    Now the flipside to that. How many trade divisions have seen concessions?

    I'm not saying that our leadership doesn't deserve to make a respectable wage for their effort but when your ranks are dwindling,organizing efforts are pathetic and your members are constantly being asked to sacrifice its yet another hard pill to swallow,they have skirted the wage cap for years now,lets not forget that they also have expense accounts that pay for the every day things that you and i must pay out of pocket,maybe like Sr when he started out his wage was a percentage of every new members dues he signed?,just my 2 cents worth.

    I agree with you that it's a tough pill to swallow. It leaves a crappy aftertaste too.

    Must be nice!

    Our contract expired 10/07, followed by a 57 day strike that went no where, and we are still living on the same income. Hoffa and Hall wouldn't know us if one of the red trucks ran over them.
