Looks like those union financial disclosures — you know, the ones overseen by the only Department of Labor section whose budget will likely be cut by union-backed politicians — are full of good info. There’s simply too much info on UnionFacts.com to go through by any one group, but interested parties can find a lot. Witness the following from the Chicago Sun-Times:
Three Chicago area Teamsters officials are among the highest paid in the union, members of what a Teamsters reform group labels the $150,000 club — officials paid more than $150,000 last year. Teamsters for a Democratic Union said the list includes John Coli, president of Teamsters Joint Council 25 and secretary treasurer of Local 727 in Chicago, who made $360,510, exceeding that of international Teamsters President James Hoffa, who made $335,657. Other local officials on the list are Patrick Flynn, Council 25 recording secretary and secretary treasurer of Local 710, who was paid $315,281; and James Dawes, president of Teamsters Local 710, who was paid $279,000.
