    Former Teamster President Carey Dies - Traffic World

    Ron Carey, the president who led the International Brotherhood of Teamsters through two major strikes before being forced out of his leadership role, died Dec. 12. He was 72.

    Carey, a long-time UPS employee and son of a UPS driver, was elected Teamsters president in 1991 on a reform platform in the first secret ballot election in the union's history. He frequently clashed with Teamster employers, including UPS.
