WorkWeek radio interviews IBT Vice President John Palmer about the forced resignation of IBT Western Regional VP Rome Aloise who in a hearing was found to have taken money from employers, used his position to get a job for a relative, threatened and intimidated rank and file members from funning and also making concessions because of favors from employers. He was removed from all his positions and membership for two years.
John Palmer who is an International VP out of Dallas Houston talks about the general crisis in labor and the failure of the corporation union leadership in the US to confront Trump and the anti-labor offensive. He also talks about the lessons of the UPS strike for today.
