Local 50 President Scott Alexander (L) and Secretary-Treasurer Mark Beil (R)
Belleville - A protest rally by members of Teamsters Local 50 is in the early stages of being organized. As one of the organizers stated, "we have been working with the IBT for over 12 months now in an effort to hold Local 50 President Scott Alexander and Secretary Treasurer Mark Beil accountable for their egregious violations of the IBT Constitution and our By-Laws. The IBT has done little to nothing to correct this situation and their indifference has created an even larger, more complex problem severely damaging the credibility of our Local and Teamsters in general in southern Illinois and it's our hope that this rally will bring attention to our struggle." The Teamster member said he hoped to have all the details ironed out soon in order to hold the rally sometime in the next two to four weeks. Notices of the rally will be made available to members with press releases being sent to all local and state media outlets when details have been finalized.
