This chapter focuses on the enforcement of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters's (IBT) administrative discipline during Ron Carey's tenure as general president from 1992 to 1997. It describes how, soon after Carey took office, disciplinary authority under the US v. IBT consent decree shifted from the investigations officer and independent administrator to an independent review board (IRB). It also considers the IRB phase of the remediation that gives the IBT a role in charging, adjudicating, and punishing disciplinary offenses, along with Carey's resistance to the IRB. Finally, it examines Carey's initiatives aimed at eradicating corruption at IBT, including the creation of the Ethical Practices Committee and his imposition of trusteeships.
