Last Tuesday Fred Z visited Local *. When he arrived and asked for Patrick K the secretaries replied he was not currently in the office. As he and the leader of the "Teamsters United *" delegates slate were leaving the hall, PK popped out of nowhere and greeted Fred. PK introduced Fred to his recording secretary GM. Fred had a cordial conversation with PK and asked him if he had heard the news. PK replied he respected his decision to run again Junior, but that he and his local supported the ex corporate lawyer. PK promised him that no "mud-slinging" was coming out of his local. He insisted his local didn't go around intimidating members a la Ron H and Randy C in the neighboring locals. When Western VP candidate Ron H * got word of this meeting he immediately contacted VP at Large candidate Rick M *. Both of them along with other JC officers were furious of the news. However, since the meeting took place on Tuesday PK has denied that such meeting and talk with Fred Z occured. It appears Ron H and Rick M not only notified the rest of JC * but that Junior was also contacted. PK continues to deny he met and spoke to Fred Z. The IBT is very concerned with PKs behavior and that if its affirmed that this meeting did take place, not only will it be the end of PK, but that the OC local will be placed into trusteeship. From sources I've spoken to, who were present at that encounter inside the * hall....I can assure the meeting did take place. The Teamsters United * delegates slate even shook GMs hand.
