Testimonials

I like your timeliness and the fact that I find things here I don't find elsewhere. Thanks.
R. Pfeifer

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know about the terrific job Joe Brock and LRI did for our employees. Joe was extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with and has great interpersonal skills that allow him to genuinely connect with employees at all levels. Our facilities mechanics and custodians were so appreciate of his work and the information he shared that he received many hugs, handshakes and thank yous on the last day. Joe also left management with a lot to think about and a road map of what needs to be done differently. Our employees ultimately voted to overwhelmingly defeat the Teamsters 43-no to 3-yes that allows us to continue to work directly with our employees in their best interest giving the us the opportunity to make things right. Joe was a great partner to HR as well, collaborating on the strategy and actions needed to make the union campaign a success. Thank you again for the great service. I would welcome the opportunity to be a reference for Joe and LRI at anytime.

I found that your site is straight to the point and very insightful. Are you hiring in the state of Michigan?

Teamsters $150K Club

As it does every year, the Teamsters for a Democratic Union (TDU) has issued its “$150,000 Club” Report.  The TDU study of Teamsters finances showed —

  • 123 Teamsters officials made over $150,000 in salary in 2010; 35 made over $200,000. The total paid to that group went up $259,636 over the previous year.
  • 129 Teamsters officials got paid a multiple salaries by the International Union, most of them appointees of James Hoffa.
  • For the first time since he took office, James Hoffa did not get a salary increase. This is because his salary goes up by a percentage equal to the rate of inflation, and inflation did not rise.
  • Hoffa did take a $6,000 hike in his total compensation: Hoffa is paid a very lucrative “housing allowance” on top of his salary.

The report also gives examples of egregious behavior on the local level including the story of John Coli who added his teenage sons John Jr. and Joseph to the Local 727 payroll.   Their combined total compensation last year: $586,690. In 2010, Coli Senior was the fourth-highest paid Teamsters official.
