Teamsters Local 120 -- a large and prominent Minnesota local -- was taken over Tuesday by its parent union after an investigation found evidence of financial irregularities by top leaders.
The union and its president, James P. Hoffa, put Local 120 into emergency trusteeship after a "determination that there has been a violation of fiduciary responsibility," said Bret Caldwell, a spokesman for the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
The top two executives of Blaine-based Local 120, Brad Slawson Sr. and Brad Slawson Jr., have been put on a leave of absence, and the local's executive leadership board has been dissolved, Caldwell said.
Teamsters 120 has about 10,000 members and offices in four states, and Slawson Sr. is a nationally known Teamsters leader. Trusteeships are not common, particularly for such a large local. Caldwell said Local 120 was put into trusteeship because of the "severity" of the allegations.
