    The Local 804 reform group of about 50 members sat in their seats when the motion was made to endorse Sean "the Boston Bully" O'Brien and Fred Z. The situation appears tense between the 804 guys and the flip-flop delegation in Chicago.

    Apparently at the bar of the Marriot Hotel the situation got tenser when the Boston Bully lost his cool and got in the face of 804 VP. If it wasn't for the members standing around the Boston Bully would have been knocjed-out. Not OK for the future GP to be getting in members faces.

    Very proud of my 804 brothers who proudly have maintained their status as reformers. As for the rest of the flip-floppers, they should be ashamed of themselves.

    So, apparently you were not there as a witness to what happened?
    Who are the witnesses to what was "apparently" said or done and how it started?

    Oops.
    Never let the facts refute a great hypothetical post.

    I would rather have an update of that rather than this stupid post.

    Regardless of the accuracy of the OP's allegation I know many union stewards and some officers that got in faces of spineless members and fellow leaders who slandered or degraded them.
    There's a myriad of reasons people get into arguements. Standing up for yourself or principles often gets you blow back no matter what the issue may be.

    True as a steward I have done it to managers, supervisors even members. It happens.

    It happens both directions. Passionate people always rise to the top.

    Now your story is really starting to fall apart....


    "Members overwhelmingly voted to endorse the O’Brien-Zuckerman Teamsters United Slate with just two votes in opposition."

    Why would he ever let facts get in the way when innuendo and fabrication are available?

    I assure you this is a fabrication. 804 VP might not stand with OB but their principal officer does.

    You really confident that would have happened? You don’t know much about OB do you? Just a short guy from Boston with zero outside hobbies huh?

    Just a short guy from Boston with crime family ties. He’s still a bully and allows contract language that most locals fight.
    Part time feeder drivers in local 25? Yes he allows PART TIME FEEDER DRIVERS

    Hmmm, is that why he’s ran unopposed forever and his members are more than happy? I guess there will be a 3rd slate out of Maple Grove? Wherever the F that is.
