U.S. Opposes Changes in Union Election Rules:...

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

U.S. Opposes Changes in Union Election Rules: The federal government has asked a judge to bar any changes in court-ordered election rules for the Teamsters union. Backers of Detroit attorney James P. Hoffa attacked the move as an effort to scuttle his bid for the presidency of the union that his father, the late James R. Hoffa, once headed. Hoffa has paid Teamsters dues for 22 years but hasn’t served a required two years in a traditional Teamsters craft occupation such as truck driving or as a union officer. Backers want that requirement eliminated.
