Feds clear Teamsters Local 399 of vote-tampering claims

The National Labor Relations Board has dismissed vote-tampering allegations by officials with Teamsters Local 399, the union representing location managers, casting directors, studio drivers and animal wranglers.

The labor relations board last year launched an investigation into claims that the union had violated federal labor law by conducting a "fraudulent membership ratification vote" for a new film and TV contract.

But in a Jan. 29 letter obtained by the Los Angeles Times, NLRB Regional Director Mori Rubin notified the union that the charge was dismissed because "there is insufficient evidence to establish a violation" of the law.
