racketeering requesting things of value from employers during negotiations taking employers gifts, including admissions to Playboy’s Super Bowl Party for Hoffa’s Executive assistant and his friends trying to leverage jobs for his relatives from employers, including UPS, Costco and others during labor negotiations negotiating a sham collective bargaining agreement using union resources to punish political opponents and prevent a fair Teamster election Just some of the charges this guy (who is on H's slate with the initials R.A.) is charged with. This is one of my favorite charges: In contract negotiations, Aloise used union negotiating leverage to try to land jobs for difficult-to-employ relatives from Teamster employers like UPS, Costco, a bus manufacturer, and SWS (the largest liquor distributor in the United States). He repeatedly pressed employers, with open contracts, to hire his step-son who had criminal charges filed against him for assault, robbery and displaying a weapon. And the guy made about $350k a year, I guess that wasn't enough for him. Now we all know why WE have to take concessions. Because our union bosses are negotiating for themselves, instead of the membership.
