Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS)

Statement of Reasons
For Dismissing Complaints Concerning the Trusteeship imposed on Local 82, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, AFL-CIO,
on September 27, 2010
in Boston, Massachusetts

Members in good standing of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 82 (Local 82), filed complaints on October 14 and November 17, 2011, with the Secretary of Labor concerning the propriety of continuing a trusteeship imposed by the International. The complainants alleged that the trusteeship was not being administered in accordance with the union’s constitution and bylaws.

The Department’s investigation established that Local 82 was merged into Teamsters Local 25 effective January 1, 2012. The merger terminated the trusteeship. Inasmuch as Local 82 no longer exists and the trusteeship has been terminated, no action is required. The issue of the administration of the trusteeship is moot. Accordingly, the Department of Labor has closed the file regarding this matter.
