United States v. International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Chauffeurs, Warehousemen and Helpers of America, AFL-CIO
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
No. 988 Civ. 4486 (1989)
The United States government (plaintiff) accused the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Chauffeurs, Warehousemen and Helpers of America, AFL-CIO (the union) (defendants), one of the largest trade unions in the world, of violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act through its relationship with La Cosa Nostra. The government and the union settled the case. As part of the settlement, the union agreed to refrain from committing any racketeering activity and from knowingly associating with any members of La Cosa Nostra. To ensure that the union complied with the terms of the settlement, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York issued a consent decree appointing three officers to oversee certain union operations and creating an independent review board empowered to investigate any future allegations of illegal union activity related to racketeering or La Cosa Nostra.
