This chapter focuses on the disciplinary cases prosecuted by the court-appointed investigations officer and adjudicated by the independent administrator against International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) officials from 1989 to 1992. It begins with an overview of sources of IBT disciplinary law and the steps involved in a disciplinary case before turning to a discussion of how officers involved in US v. IBT laid down a comprehensive administrative law of IBT's disciplinary violations. It then considers how the consent decree made administrative prosecution of violations of the IBT's constitution, IBT locals' bylaws, federal criminal and labor laws, and the consent decree itself the primary means of ridding the union of organized crime's influence.

Keywords:   disciplinary cases, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, disciplinary law, US v. IBT, administrative law, disciplinary violations, consent decree, administrative prosecution, organized crime
