251 Strong Fined for Cheating, Breaking Law


251 Strong and the Hoffa Campaign have been fined $9,000 for cheating in the Local 251 election.

Investigators found that 251 Strong’s Kelley McNally illegally obtained a Local 251 membership list from the Hoffa Campaign and used it to get members’ phone numbers.

Many members complained about receiving phone calls from 251 Strong without their permission. Now you know how they got your number!

The Election Supervisor ruled that 251 Strong broke both the election rules and federal law.

International Union Blocks Phony Suspensions

The International Union has blocked the phony suspensions of Paul Santos and Brooke Reeves by issuing an official stay of effectiveness.

Click here to download the letter from the International Union blocking the phony suspensions.

The attacks against Paul and Brooke are an election-year gimmick. There have been many lies told by the 251 Wrong and 251 Management United slates. Here is the truth:

The International Union has officially blocked any discipline against Local 251 officers.

The phony charges against Paul Santos and Brooke Reeves are being appealed.

The National Labor Relations Board has not ruled against any Local 251 officer. Kelly McNally filed phony charges against Matt Taibi. They will be dismissed.

No one from Local 251 turned any member in to management or tried to get them fired. Period.

Local 251 investigated RIH management for lying and interfering with union officers. Lifespan management has a long history of controlling Local 251—and we will not allow it.

The attacks on Local 251 are an election-year gimmick. But the future of our local will not be decided by lies or phony charges. It will be decided by you, the members.

Vote 251 United Action.

We're Voting 251 United Action

 tyler-marshall.jpgHonest Union Leaders

“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

“Previously, our jobs were given away. Now we have a union that fights for us in construction. We need leadership and support from our union like we have in United Action!”

 — Paul Macateer, Cardi Construction


mike-trudeau-web.jpgUnion Reps that Back Us

“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


 Re-Electing United Action & Voting Hoffa Out

“We cleaned house in Local 251. We need to keep it that way, and clean house in the International too. I’m voting to re-elect 251 United Action and supporting Fred Zuckerman and Teamsters United.”
