251 United Action Stops Dues Waste

Members elected 251 United Action to end years of dues waste. And the 251 United Action delivered.

When we took office, Local 251 had $696,679 in net assets. Today, our union has $962,118. That’s a 38% increase in net assets.

We cut the bloated salaries that the former officers and agents were paying themselves.

We sold the cars and cell phones that Bairos and Croce bought for themselves and other officials using your dues money.

We used the savings to hire a full-time organizer to build our membership and organize the nonunion competition. And we hired a legislative director to give members a voice in the State House.

Now that we’ve rebuilt the treasury, the former officials are trying to take back over the union. But members are not going back.

“When Kevin Reddy. Joe Bairos and Linda Russolino were in office, the union just took our money and did nothing for members at Rhode Island Hospital. Management is as bad as ever, but at least now we have union leaders who are honest and try to help the members.”

  Ty Marshall, Jr., Rhode Island Hospital

“Under Hoffa, Bairos and Croce, the national master freight contract got taken apart. We took major concessions. Now they are asking for my vote? Over my dead body. I'm voting United Action."

“For the first time, UPS Teamsters have Union Reps that are in our corner. Management doesn't like it and neither do Hoffa, O'Brien or Joe Bairos. Well too bad. We're voting United Action."

 — Nick Orabona, UPS

“We didn’t vote for them in the local election but from day one, the United Action team has fought for us at McLaughlin and Moran. Joe Bairos came to an arbitration as a company witness against us! We’re voting for union reps that side with the members, not the company.”

 Mike Trudeau, McLaughlin & Moran
