Teamsters Local 120 under scrutiny, execs placed on leave


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The International Brotherhood of Teamsters says it's taken over leadership of a 10,000-member local and placed its top two executives on leave, citing evidence of financial irregularities.

Teamsters spokesman Bret Caldwell says Local 120 was placed into emergency trusteeship and its leaders, Brad Slawson, Sr., and Brad Slawson, Jr., are on leave. Local 120, based in Blaine, also has offices in North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa.
