Union and U.S. attorney move to end 25 years of U.S. government oversight.
Wednesday marks an important milestone in the history of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. The Teamsters Union and the U.S. Attorney for the southern district of New York filed an application with Chief Judge Loretta Preska requesting that she approve an agreement to end decades of government oversight of our union. We anticipate that the court will approve the agreement.
As a result of the dedication and strength of our members, I can finally say without hesitation that corrupt elements have been driven from our union and that government oversight can come to an end.
