The president of Teamsters Union Local 407 in Cleveland said he plans to run against Jackie Presser for the presidency of the 1.7-million-member national union, it was reported. C. Sam Theodus said he will have his name placed in nomination at the union's convention in Las Vegas next month, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported. Theodus has said that he is opposed to the union's election process, by which presidents of locals automatically become delegates to the national convention that names the remaining 2,000 delegates.
