SCUMBAG LOCAL 25 TEAMSTER SCUMBAG LOCAL 25 TEAMSTER
PRESIDENT SEAN M. O'BRIEN VICE PRESIDENT JOHN A. MURPHY
Why is a low life, uneducated union scumbag like Boston Local 25 Teamster Union President, Sean Obrien, who associates with known felons, who uses union thugs to attack fellow union members who dare to question his methods and leadership, and who was just caught threatening (See YouTube Video) union members at a rally in Rhode Island with punishment if they did not vote his way, a Teamster Union President?
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - The highest ranking Teamsters official in New England is facing possible disciplinary action for comments he made at a union election rally in Rhode Island.
Sean O'Brien, the powerful vice president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and a top lieutenant to labor president James Hoffa, is facing possible suspension from the union for stating members should be "punished" if they elected someone other than those he supported in a Rhode Island labor election.
According to findings of the Independent Review Board (IRB) – an organization that investigates union corruption – O'Brien was speaking at a rally for Local 251 Secretary-Treasurer Joseph Bairos in East Providence when he said he would have a "major problem" with those who voted against Bairos.
"I've got news for you, anybody who takes on my friend, Joe Bairos and his team, or Local 251, they've got a major problem," O'Brien said according to a transcript in the IRB letter. "They'll never be our friends. They need to be punished."
The comments were posted in a YouTube video, according to the IRB letter. They have since been removed.
As Vice President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and President of the Local 25 in Boston, O'Brien made more than $207,000 in 2012, according to the IRB. The board found his powerful position in the union gives him the power "to retaliate against these political opponents."
David Levin is an organizer with the Teamsters for a Democratic Union and supports the opposition movement inside Local 251. During a phone call from his New York office, he called the ruling "significant."
"The fact that a grassroots movement in Rhode Island has shaken the Teamster power structure not only in New England but across the country is a good story for underdogs who believe in union democracy," Levin said. "It's illegal to threaten members for exercising their right to run for union office."
Levin supplied the letter from the IRB to WPRI.com. He said recommendations by the board are almost always followed by the unions.
O'Brien will likely be suspended by the Teamsters for his comments, which could impact his chances for reelection as vice president, according to Levin. He said Hoffa has 90 days to decide on what to do and the IRB has to sign off on any decision.
Bairos is being challenged by Matt Taibi for the position of Secretary-Treasurer, which is the top position within the local. The election began on October 9th through mail-in ballots. They will be counted on October 30.
The Local 251 represents more than 2,500 workers. Rhode Island Hospital employs the largest amount of workers in the union.
The Teamsters were founded in 1903 and have 1.4 million members at 1,900 local affiliates throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, according to the union’s website.
O’Brien has not returned a call for comment but in the IRB letter he told investigators the comments were “a poor choice of words.”
The IRB was formed after a 1989 federal court decision in a Teamsters case. It investigates and takes action on “any allegations of corruption” according to a description on the Teamsters’ website.
The three-member panel is made up of an appointee from the Attorney General of the United States, the Teamsters and a third party mutually agreed upon by the government and the union.

Really, this corrupt piece of shit is on the Board of Directos at Massport?
SCUMBAG SEAN O'BRIEN SCUMBAG JOHN MURPHY
THESE TWO ASSHOLES ARE THE VERY REASON WHY
MEET LOCAL 25 TEAMSTER'S WHO HAVE MURDERED
On August 25, 1994, Patrick McGonagle, Michael O'Halloran, Anthony Shea, Stephen Burke, and Matthew McDonald, kidnapped and executed two armored-car drivers in Hudson New Hampshire. According to the NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR LABOR RELATIONS RESEARCH
all of the men involved in the execution of the two armored-car driver's were LOCAL 25 TEAMSTER TRUCK DRIVER'S!
Sean O'Brien also happened to be a Local 25 Teamster Truck Driver in 1994!
William O'Brien's, Sean O'Brien's scumbag father, name appeared in an indictment in the 1994 armored car heist in Hudson New Hampshire that ended in the execution of the two guards. The indictment stated William O'Brien's name was on the rental agreement of the getaway car.
In the summer of 2003, the Teamsters settled with the Justice Department. The Teamster union consented to refrain from a long list of acts, including brandishing or carrying:
"any weapon of any kind, including, but not limited to, guns, knives, slingshots, rocks, ball bearings, liquid-filled balloons or other projectiles, sledge hammers, bricks, stones or two-by-fours at or near any picket line...."; using or threatening to use a weapon of any kind, including hot coffee, bottles, two-by-fours, lit cigarettes, eggs or bags of balloons filled with excrement against any non-striking Overnite employee or security guard" ...; threatening "to kill or inflict bodily harm," making "throat-slashing motions," making "gun-pointing motions," challenging or threatening "to fight or assault employees," threatening "to sexually assault non-striking employees or their family members," threatening "to follow non-striking employees to their homes," using "racial epithets or obscene gestures at non-striking employees."
The fact that the Teamsters agreed to refrain from such activity in the future is nothing less than an acknowledgment by the Teamster hierarchy that its agents did engage in such acts.
In 2012, Local 25 Teamster Vice President John Murphy, threatened to kill Local 25 Teamster Paul Coronite, and repeatedly challenged me to fight him, in front of witnesses, and even threatened me with physical bodily harm.
On June 13, 2013, The Massachusetts Department Of Labor Relations determined that the Local 25 Teamsters had breached its duty of fair representation and interfered with my rights guaranteed me under the law.
Yet the IRB, whose job it is to watchdog the Teamster's Union, has taken no action against John Murphy, Sean O'Brien, Michael O'Brien, or the Local 25 Teamsters Union?
How can Sean O'Brien expect his Vice President, John Murphy, not to act out violently toward others, including union members, when he himself assaulted a man, that he didn't even know, in front of a Medord Massachusetts Police Officer. Imagine what Sean O'Brien would have done to the man, if there wasn't a police officer present at the time.
Why would Gov. Patrick, and Massport Official's appoint Sean O'Brien to Massports Board of Directors in September of 2012, knowing his checkered past, including his recent 2010 arrest for assaulting a man that he didn't even know, in front of a Medford Massachusetts Police Officer, and more importantly, why are Massachusetts Politicians like, Gov. Patrick, Mayor Menino, Congressman Capuano, and Attorney General Martha Coackley, associating with Sean O'Brien, knowing his checkered past, including his recent 2010 arrest for assaulting a man that he didn't even know, in front of a Medford Massachusetts Police Officer. You will have to keeep reading to find out the answer to that.
Sean O'Brien's Vice President, John A. Murphy, goes around calling everyone that he doesn't like, including other Local 25 members, "a piece of shit," but the truth is, anyone who looked into John Murphy's back ground, would be hard pressed to find a bigger "piece of shit," than John Murphy.
John Murphy, was arrested on a Warrant, for Domestis Assault & Battery, on a family member, can you think of a Bigger "Piece of ShIt." I can't.
You gotta love John Murphy's police booking photo (Mugshot) above, which was taken at the Medford State Police Barracks, in Medford MA, and the fact that the drunken idiot chose to wear his tie, in his booking photo, is priceless! Scumbags like Sean O'Brien and John Murphy think that dressing up and putting on a tie, makes them ligit, but the truth is, shit is shit, no matter how you dress it!
When John Murphy was arrested for DRUNK DRIVING, the idiot had twice the legal limit (0.16) of alcohol in his system, and passed a clearly marked Massachusetts State Police cruiser on Massachusett's Highway 93 North, going 100 MPH, in a union owned vehicle. This idiot could have killed himself, or worse, killed someone else. Did the union fire him for this offese, after he was found guilty? Did Sean O'Brien fire him? No he didn't!
I guess John Murphy driving 100 mph drunk, in a union owned vehicle wasn't a real concern for Sean O'Brien, despite the fact that John Murphy could have killed himself, or worse, killed someone else.
Sean O'Brien cares about Sean O'Brien, and that is it!
Prior to becoming the president of the Local 25 Teamsters, Sean O'Brien was litirally nothing more than an uneducated, Local 25 Teamster truck driver.
John Murphy has never been anything more than an uneducated business agent, who Sean O'Brien has kept around to intimidate, threaten, and assault union members, who dare to question his leadership and methods of operation.
Without the union, Sean O'Brien, at best, would be driving truck truck somewhere, and John Murphy would be supersizing meals, or welcoming people to walmart.
Unions like the Local 25 Teamsters prosper by forcing hard working men and women to pay them union dues, with the promise that when their employers do them wrong, they will step in to defend them, but that is a complete lie, as I found out.
In 2012, against Massport Supervisor Michele Freadman's wishes, I reported Massachusets Special State Police Officer Robert Taylor, who also happens to be a fellow union member, to Massports Human Resources Department, and to the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD), because of his history of harassing his co-worker's and discriminating against blacks, Hispanics, and other Minorities that dated back to 2009, as the evidence below shows.
I also filed the MCAD complaint against Massport Supervisor Michele Freadman, and Massport, for allowing Robert Taylor to harass his co-worker's, and discriminate against Minorities at Massport.
LINK: Here is the link to my Original MCAD complaint that I filed against Robert Taylor, and Massport Supervisor Michele Freadman, and Massport.
Immediately after going against my supervisor, Michele Freadman's wishes, and reporting Massport employee Robert Taylor for discrimination, my supervisor Michele Freadman began retaliating against me, for what Massports administrator's call "Creating Waves."
I was not the only union member, or co-worker, to file a complaint against Robert Taylor. In fact, every single one of Robert Taylor's co-workers/union brother's and sister's, at Massport, at one time, or another, had filed complaints against him.
Click Here: To see the unbeleivable amount of complaints that had been filed against Robert Taylor , by his fellow co-workers and others, over the years.
Rather than come to my defense, like my union should have, my Union Chief Steward (Michael O'Brien, (Sean O'Brien's brother) and my Union Vice President John Murphy, retaliated against me for asking for union representation, after I turnined in Robert Taylor, and Massport for discrimination, and even went as far as to attack me at my work place at Massport, which resulted in me having to be ambulatized and hospitalzed that day. Despite knowing that I had been attacked by his brother, Michael O'Brien, and Union Vice President, John Murphy, Sean O'Brien took no action against either of them.
LINK: Massachusetts State Police Incident Report regarding Emerson being attacked at work, on Massport property, by two of Sean O'Briens union thugs, Michael O'Brien (Sean O'Briens Brother), and John Murphy, Sean Obrien's Vice President, for which Emerson was hospitalized.
LINK: Massachusetts General Hospital Discharge Notes.
At the time I did not understand what Local 25 Teamster President Sean O'Brien's motives were for retaliating against me, until I discovered that Sean O'Brien and Massport were in bed together, and had been in bed together for years, and that in 2001, Massport, despite being illegal, gave Local 25 Teamster President Sean O'Brien permission to run an illicit truck driver training school on Massport property, which was later shut down by the Feds.
GOV. PATRICK & SEAN O'BRIEN
When I realized that Local 25 Teamster President Sean O'Brien, and Massport, were in bed together,
and were now both retaliating against me, I wrote a letter to Governor Deval Patrick's Office informing him of the discrimination and corruption that was occurring at Massport.
I never heard back from Governor Deval Patrick, or anyone from his office, and initally, I did not understand why. That was until I discovered that Governor Deval Patrick and Sean O'Brien were friend's, and that Sean O'Brien had campaigned for Gov. Patrick, during the 2010 Gubenatorial election.
I also did not know it, at the time, but Governor Patrick and Massport were planning to appoint Sean O'brien to Massports Board of Director's in September of 2012. This was Gov. Patrick's way of repaying Sean O'Brien for Local 25's campaign donation's, and for campaigning for him, during the 2010 Gubenatorial election.
This explained why Sean O'Brien ordered, or allowed John Murphy and his brother, Michael O'Brien, to my work place, to attack me, when I asked for union represention.
Sean O'Brien was in bed with Massports Management, and was on his way to being appointed to Massports Board of Director's by Gov. Patrick, and going against Massport at that time, and defending me, might very well have jepordized his appointment to Massports Board of Director's, so Sean O'Brien turned his back on me, and not only refused to fairly represent me, but allowed John Murphy and his brother to Michael O'Brien, to intimidate and threaten me, after I emailed Sean O'Brien asking for union representation. John Murphy also attempted to intimidate my fellow co-workers/Union Brother's and Sister's into helping him set me up.
LINK: Calderwood's notarized statement, in which my own Local 25 Union Vice President John Murphy refers to me as a piece of shit, that I woul not be smiling when my arbitration hearing is over, and attempt to intimidate Calderwood into saying that I did something that I did not do. Officer Calderwood was so discusted with John Murphy, that he approached me , and asked me if I wanted a notarized statement about what John Murphy had said.
MAYOR MENINO & SEAN O'BRIEN
When Gov. Patrick ignored my 2012, complaint of racism and corruption occurring at Massport, I contacted Mayor Menino's Office, but I never heard back from Mayor Menino, or anyone from his office, and I soon discovered why. Mayor Menino and Local 25 Teamster President Sean O'Brien were friend's, and Sean O'Brien used his union position, as the president of the Local 25 Teamsters, to campaign for Mayor Menino.
To put it simply, Local 25 Teamster President Sean O'Brien had bought Mayor Menino with campaign contributions, and by using Local 25 union members, to campaign for Mayor Menino.
CONGRESSMAN CAPUANO A QUOTE BY LOCAL 25 TEAMSTER
PRESIDENT SEAN O'BRIEN
When Mayor Menino ignored my 2012, complaint of racism and corruption occurring at Massport, I contacted Congressman Michael Capuano's Office, but I never heard back from Congressman Capuano, or anyone from his office, and I soon discovered why. Congressman Capuano and Local 25 Teamster President Sean O'Brien were friend's, and Sean O'Brien used his union position, as the president of the Local 25 Teamsters, to campaign for Mayor Menino.
To put it simply, Local 25 Teamster President Sean O'Brien had bought Congressman Capuano with campaign contributions, and by using Local 25 members, to campaign for Congressman Capuano.
Attorney General Martha Coakley, the chief lawyer and law enforcement officer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in bed with, one of the biggist, if not the biggest, union scumbag, in the State of Massachusetts.
When I realized that Local 25 Teamster President Sean O'Brien had bought nearly everyone, that a Local 25 Teamster Union member could complain to, about corruption occurring within the Local 25 Teamster Union, I decided to contact the chief lawyer and law enforcement officer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
I contacted Attorney General Martha Coakley because she is the chief lawyer and law enforcement officer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. According to her website her office combats fraud and corruption, protecting civil rights, and promoting meaningful economic recovery.
Yet, when I contacted the Attorney General's Criminal Division about the racism and corruption that was occurring at Massport, and the fact that Sean O'Brien had sent two of his union thugs, Michael O'Brien (Sean O'Briens Brother), and John Murphy, Sean Obrien's Vice President, to attack me at work on Massport property, for according to John Murphy, daring to question Sean O'Brien's methods and leadership, which left me having to be ambulatized and hospitalized that day, I never heard back from Martha Coakley, or anyone else from the Attorney General Office, and I soon discovered why.
Attorney General Martha Coakley and Local 25 Teamster President Sean O'Brien were friend's, and Sean O'Brien had used his union position, as the president of the Local 25 Teamsters, to campaign Martha Coakley's run for Attorney General, and for her run, for a U.S. Seanate seat.
It is sickening that Attorney General Martha Coakley, the chief lawyer and law enforcement officer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, would befriend a union scumbag like Sean O'Brien, in order to get Sean O'Brien to endorse her run for Attorney General, and for a U.S. Senate seat.
KAREN L. NOBER
My last hope was the Massachusetts State Ethics Commission, so I sent a complaint to the Executive Director of the Massachusetts State Ethics Commission Karen L. Nober, but all I got from her Investigaor's was "shhhhh, don't tell anyone that you contacted our office, and when were done with our investigation, we'll get back to you. Yeah, right, when hell freezes over! Karen Nober works for the State of Massachusetts and in particular, Governor Patrick, and she sure as hell was not going to put her job on the line, to expose Massport and Governor Patrick for what they are, which is corrupt.
LINK: Here is the actual complaint that I sent to the Massachusetts State Ethics Commission about Massport and Governor Patrick appointing corrupt Local 25 Teamster President, Sean O'Brien, to Massport Board of Director's.
It should also be noted that two of my fellow employees/union brothers, Sgt. Paul Coronite, and Officer Kurt Calderwood, who refused to help Massport and John Murphy set me up, were also retaliated against by Massport and our union representative's John Murphy and Sean O'Brien.
On August 01, 2012, while at Logans Office Center (LOC), at Massport, John Murphy pinned Local 25 union member Paul Coronite, against a wall, and stated "I will kill you, I own you, you pussy," "and "what are you going to do, pussy." Paul Coronite literally had to turn away from John Murphy when John Murphy made a sudden flinch with his right arm, as thougfh he was going to srtike Paul. Sean O'Brien's brother (Michael O'Brien), was present when this incident occurred, but did nothing to stop it. Massport Managers, and Massport Administrator's, were also present during this incident, but did nothing to stop it either.
At my first retaliatory based disciplinary hearing, for using my work place computer for personal use, which was allowed, until I turned Massport into the MCAD, my Union Vice President John Murphy told me that I was "a piece of shit," and that "he could not wait to see the expression on my face, when Massport fired me."
Here is a notorized statement from one of my union brothers, Kurt Calderwood, who John Murphy attempted to intimidate into telling lies about me. Aviation Officer Calderwood's Notarized Statement.
CLICK HERE: To Read what Massports Local 25 Union Chief Steward Mike O'Brien (Sean O'Brien's brother), and Local 25,s Union Vice President John Murphy, did to Calderwood, when he refused to take a two day suspension, for something he did not do.
CLICK HERE: To see how Local 25 Union Vice President John Murphy unlawfully tried to stop Captain Lane, and others, from helping Claderwood get his unjust suspension overturned, by sending an e-mail to Massports Director of Labor Relations, Attorney Kelly Strong, stating that he did not want Calderwood's suspension rescinded, and that if Calderwood's suspension was rescinded, he would file an Unfair Labor Practices Charge against those who helped Calderwood get his supension overturned.
Seriously, could John Murphy be a bigger "piece of shit?" The answer is No!
That "piece of shit" John Murphy should have been fired by Local 25 Union President, Sean O'Brien, when Sean O'Brien was made aware, what John Murphy had done to Calderwood, but Sean O'Brien did nothing, even though he, Sean O'Brien, was provided with irrefutable evidence of what John Murphy had done to Calderwood.
Could Sean O'Brien be a "bigger piece of shit?" Again, the answer is, No!
On June 28, 2012, with my Union Vice President John Murphy refusing to fairly represent me, Massport fired me, and refused to take my case to arbitration, but changed their minds, once I filed a complaint against them, with the Department of Labor Relations (DLR), and the DLR told them to arbitrate my case.
My Union Vice President John Murphy was extremely angered that I had found a way to force him into having to arbitrate my case, and at my first meeting with Teamster's Attorney Jonathan Conti, and John Murphy, John Murphy became angered, and did what he has done every time he becomes angered, which is to call me "a piece of shit" and threaten me. John Murphy threats included following statements:
1. That he wanted to fight me at a baseball field.
2. That he wanted to meet me inside of a phone booth to fight, so that I could not run
3. And, that after the meeting was over, he was going to wait outside Attorney Conti's
Office building for me and this time, he was going to give me more than a heart attack,
referring to when he attacked me at work on February 10th, 2012, and I was was
ambulatized and hospitalized as a result of his attack upon me.
Paul Coronite and Kurt Calderwood were both present at this meeting, and heard these threats.
John Murphy literally threatened me with physical violence throughout the entire meeting, while
sitting directly beside Union Attorney Jonathan Conti.
Despite the fact that Attorney Conti was aware of the previous threats and attacks upon me, by John Murphy, on Massport property on February 10th, 2012, Attorney Conti just sat there, and allowed John Murphy to repeatedly threaten me with physical violence.
My arbitration, was originally scheduled to start on December 18th, 2012, however one (1) business day before my arbitration was to begin, John Murphy, because of his hostility toward me, which includes him having previously accosting me on February 10, 2012, which resulted in me having to be ambulatized and hospitalized that day, suspended my union membership, and then, without my knowledge, John Murphy, Massport, and their hand-picked arbitrator, arbitrated my case without me being present, at my own arbitration hearing.
I reiterate, because I know how hard it is to believe, my union, suspended my union membership,
and then, without my knowledge, my union, Massport, and their hand-picked arbitrator, arbitrated
my case without me being present.
Only Massport, and the Local 25 Teamsters, could get away with such a blatant act of corruption.
You think the Local 25 Teamsters, wouldn't do this to you, neither did the three (3) of us, and the three of us had a combined number of 20 years in the union. The three of us also had a combined number of twenty (20) years paying union dues to Local 25, and you know what we got for it, Nothing, except for intimidation, threats, and Unfair Union Representation, by our Local 25 Union Representative's Michael O'Brien, John Murphy, and Sean O'Brien.
