Pittsburgh Tribune Review
Trusteeship proceedings concerning Laborers' Local 1058 will continue at 10 a.m. this morning at the Koppers building, 436 Seventh Ave., Downtown.
The Laborers International Union of North America wants a trustee to supervise its Pittsburgh-based local because of alleged ties to organized crime.
Attorney Robert D. Luskin, who represents the national union, filed the trusteeship complaint requesting that the union's independent hearing officer determine whether officers of Local 1058 of the Construction, General Laborers and Material Handlers Union should be removed.
No officers or executive board members of Local 1058 face criminal or union disciplinary charges. Local 1058 has about 3,500 members.
The national union has imposed trusteeships and supervisions on more than 20 locals and district councils representing about 60,000 union members, Luskin said.
