Labor Leader Is Reinstated And Then Retired
May 29, 1995
The laborers' union has reinstated one of two officials that it suspended in January as part of an effort to remove alleged organized crime influence and to head off an impending racketeering case being prepared by the Justice Dept.
Samuel J. Caivano,who managed the union's New York/New Jersey region, will be reinstated but then retire from the union with full pension.
Another union vice president, John Serpico of Chicago, remains suspended and has a lawsuit pending against the union for his dismissal.
