According to FightBack! News, June 5, 2010;

Larry Davis, the new president of Teamsters Local 743 in Chicago, fired five staff members on May 28. Davis had been installed by International President Jim Hoffa on May 14.

The five fired are Field Service Director Bill Silver, Lead Negotiator Catherine Schutzius, Business Agents J. Burger (University of Chicago Medical Center) and Joe Sexauer (University of Chicago) and Lead Organizer Makia Burns.

Davis himself didn’t claim the staff were being fired for their failures, or for betraying the promises that they were elected on. In fact, when he fired them, Davis told each they had done a good job, but they were just not “part of his new team.”[3]
