Teamsters union elects three new leaders, spokesman says

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Teamsters union in Las Vegas has elected three new leaders, a little more than a year after a threatened national union takeover amid board infighting and claims of misuse of funds.

A spokesman said Tuesday that results of the Local 631 vote were tallied Friday and were being certified Tuesday by an arbitrator based in San Diego.

Unofficial results have Tom Blitsch elected secretary/treasurer and principal officer. He will replace John Phillipenas. Cheryl Schmidt was elected president, replacing Kevin Hardison. Javon Jefferson won the vice presidency, replacing Don Weimer.
