BELLEVILLE - Unnamed but trusted sources have informed that the Independent Review Board (IRB) will be in the offices of Teamsters Local 50 sometime during the week of March 14th to conduct an extensive and complete investigation of the Local. The Independent Review Board ("IRB"), and its predecessor, the Independent Administrator ("IA"), was established pursuant to a Consent Decree entered into between the United States Government and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters ("IBT") in 1989 to rid the IBT of corruption and organized crime.
This investigation comes only days after a previous IRB investigation of Local 50 resulted in proposed charges to IBT General President Hoffa against a Local 50 member for “ bringing reproach upon the IBT through threatening to retaliate against an IBT member for exercising rights protected under federal labor law and the IBT Constitution, including the rights to seek election to office, support the candidate of one's choice, free speech and assembly.”
