Teamsters divide evenly on corruption

The members of Teamsters Local 377 in Youngstown (OH) will have to wait another month before they know who's really in charge or if they'll have to vote again for new leaders.

At least two new officers whom the members elected last fall are accused of theft in office and corruption. The top Teamster leaders from the International had suspended them. But those same top officials also allowed the new officers to remain in charge for now while the International decides whether to uphold the suspensions and hold a new election.

The issue has divided the thirty-eight hundred local members down the middle. The International executive board will meet February 12th in Washington to make a decision on both the suspensions and the second election.
