Reminds me of the old Bob and Cindy show, whats neext hire your kid to be a BA?

Do you have any other family or friends that need a job Tommy, And as for Greg I thought that you were ineligible to run for office, how come you didnt tell that during your campaign. Oh thats right just another one of your slates many LIES that was told. Good Luck you will be lucky to finish your term of office, if the IRB has anything to say about it!!!LOL.....

Sounds like a widespread J.C. 25 problem. With 179 it would be interesting to know the demise of past presidents. The White's land deals and other corruption. Kinney hit the ground running, banging the help at the Pension office, using the local credit cards as his own play money and pocketing cash paid dues. Sounds like Richy the boys are getting a little careless.

Maybe Rich is hiring his wife so he can concentrate on issues like THE FRICKIN PENSION PLAN IS BROKE......YES BOYS BROKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is Rich costing you 250K with bennies? At least maybe he could afford a decent hair cut.

I am sure you have read all the crap going on in 673 before R0ger had it removed. Material Haulers agreement expired since May of 2010, Bulk Haulers agreement expired with no talks going on, other companies with no contracts for 5 or 6 years. Never around to take care of Local business but you see him in pictures picketing at a redi mix yard in Rochelle,IL. Or handing out hand bills before a afternoon brew fest at the Cubs game.

What the hell is the Joint Council doing? They need to trustee or merge these local and get some in there who knows how to run a local! They also should look into the Suburban Teamster Pension Fund before the PBGC liquidates this fund.

Such great leadership. Raul Swaqkins skillfully negotiates a contract at a local precast for almost 2 yrs. Ownership finally tires of this idiot and locks out membership. Our stand up officers leave these guys on the street, making signs out of cardboard boxes and bedsheets. Not a organized line or signs from the local. Dumb Ass R0ger shows up in the afternoon, stands there with his arms folded watching the cars go by and then left. His next bright move was to send a letter to ownership relinquishing representation of the employees and declining interest in negotiating a agreement. Way to go REFORM 673!!!!!!!!

Yea your Local is sure messed up too, At least the Cuustters knew what the hell they were doing. They had respect.
Our Local is a joke, yeah bob and Tom sure fcked up the whole deal a while ago, they were into so much crap it was unreal.
And while Kinney was mesing with that woman isnt smart , he screwed up. And now we have had rich, who isnt the smartest but he had a battle from within the whole time. Which brings us to our new President Tommy Boy, how can you not tell people that you are giving your "wife" a job as a secretary at 60 k a year, oh yeah and her friend a job as a secretary, BOTH of whom were FIRED from the LOCAL!! What the helll is that if you were FIRED for wrongdoings then you shouldnt be allowed to work back at the Hall. Imagine the secrets they can keep as Pres and head secretary in charge of the money! Hey dear you want a raise? ok how much do u need? Ill just give you some more money> Hah I know many 150 operators, 75 laborers and othe local trademen, they all laugh at our Hall, they have NOOOOO respect, JC do anything hah no they have another Fllynnn in the ranks to suck up too God help us all!!!!

Hey 673 nightmare i agree that both of these locals should be merrged together, and bring in a new eboard that has HONESTY and isnt a bunch of alcholoics. Your post said about rich hiring his wife, no its the new Pres elect Tommy Boy Fllynn. Rich lost the election and we have to deal with Tommy Boy now. He is set to hire his "wife" in Jan when he takes over, problem is that she was FIRED from the office and was paid a severance package. Talka about nepotism, hire your wife, her best friend and pay them OUR dues money and let them run rampant without answering to anybody!!!!! wish JC 25 would have some sense to figure out how bad this stinks....... our local has many expired agreements and unherrd grievances, I guess they will have to wait till after the holidays are over, plenty of xmas parties and cocktails to enjoy for the "important" people to enjoy, all on the backs of hard working memebers...

So our new Pres. elect Tommy boy is set to take over Jan 1, what a sad day for the Local which has been around for over 100 yrs, it has never been a lower moral or attitude with the members. How can a man who has NEVER, I repeat NEVER had a cdl or drove a truck one day in his life or worked long 12-16 hour days being beaten down by his employer, become the president of a local??????? I guess it pays to have a magic last name like Flllyyn ore Hoooofa, all those who voted for this slate will not be better off in 3 yrs and thats the sad thing, not to mention the hiring of 2 formeer members of the local that were FIRED for wrongs being hired by Tommy Boy. how can you sleep at night, ohhh thats right you pass out every night in a drunken stuupor from drinkin all day long!!!!!!! save us all your 2000k a year that yuour family is gonna rape us for and resign now........

The biggest loss for 179 is Gary Johnson. Gary is a stand up Teamster and Unionist. Not easy to replace a Brother like Gary, best of luck to 179.

I cant believe Tommy Boyy hasnt had one of his guys on here yet blastin this post, oyy yeah they are prpobably all at the bar drinkin lunch with the "boss man". Ha you cant even get them to return your phone call from the hall, they are never there, always in a "meeting" ya right.. It should be a requirement that to become President that you have to stand up and tell the truth to members and not hide behind others to keep info from us, remember the ones who pay every frickin dime of your $!@@!@!!@ 125k plus waste of salary!!!!!!!! You are a JOKE and noway a Teamster, ur lucky that only 1000 members voted!!! Hah not only is the joke on you, YOU ARE THE JOKE!!!!

Well there is only 2 days left till the New Leaders "take over" as described on their web site. "When me and my slate take over", what a joke, they actually think that "they" are the boss and everybody better listen to them or else!!! Whats going to happen Tommmyyy Boyyy when you are taken out by the IRB, maybe you could appoint your wife to run the local! Haa Haa you will be the one that is left out in the cold, maybe you culd learn to drive a truck and become a member and work for your paycheck like most Teamsters do, and remember work starts at 6am not 10, so you better get a alarm clock and practice your cdl study guide!!!! Resign now and save the local more embarassement!! you dont want to end up "in the back of the magazine", do you??

By now Im sure that Tommmy Boyy is partying and drinkin his assss off thinkin he will rule the roost monday moring, well enjoy the weekend Tommmy cause the rise to the top will soon be followed by a crash to the bottom. The old sayin of what comes around goes around will ring true, and you wont forget that the member will have the last say in what happens to our local, NOT YOU. I cant believe you or Greggy Succckyboy havnt responded to this, then again you probaly cant read all this when you guys are soo drunk that you cant walk. Do the right thing and RESIGN now, Be a MAN NOT A *****!!!!!!

So I wonder what Boy Genius wonder Tommmy will do next, does he have any more friends and relitaves that need a job still?? The membership meeting will be very intertsesing, all the members will be informed of all your hirings and nepotism and will not be happy, do you honestly think that you can get away with all this crap and have nobody to answer to???? Come on now you cant be that stupid can you, this is not "your Local" as you claim sir, it belongs to the members you mother@#$#@#!@#, useless waste, . Enjoy the view at the top, cause the fall to the bottom will be very hard!!!!! you should tell the members how you decided who you were gonna hire, qualifications, honesty, morals, work dedication, or was it just easier to go around all the hard stuff and just hire your friends and family and EX employees. Dont woory there will be some vacanies to fill again soon enough!!!!!

What are your thoughts on the exc. board changing the general membership meeting to 10:00 am. on the third Sunday of each month? Sunday morning ...are you kidding me. The day of rest. A lot of people have church, kids CCD and family activities. Surely a ploy for the guys who have the most to gain, Tommie and the E board. I am sure they will claim they they have a quarum so they can push their agenda through. Too line thier pockets. I am sure R0ger will think that is a great idea for 673. Only problem the retard slate can't make to work during the week. The good news is now we have 2 new experts on the pension board, Tommie and Squakins from 673 as brain surgeon R0ger stepped down. Hopefully the Dom from 330 can focus if they aren't still busy threatening each other and mailing bullets and hand guns to each other up there.
