Here are the Local 13 Trial Committee minutes 5-20-15, and the Larry Toledo’s investigation report Greek vs Bobby, and the Larry Toledo’s payroll evidence re Greek vs Bobby, from the Trail Committee held as a result of the complaint filed by the Greek related to Bobby O putting the Greek and Scary Jerry on the payroll, for babysitting his mother at Mayor Garcetti’s luncheon.
In his April 10, 2015 report, Tiolet claims he found the allegation to be unwarranted for lack of evidence and he included his investigation notes and “evidence” that was used to formulate his decision.
Toilet makes the claim that he “fairly represented” Angelo, and acted with honest good faith judgment and made a sufficient investigation to the “knowledge of the facts” and then made a “good faith decision based on those facts”; without ever talking to Angelo. How do you do that?
Toilet claims the “major deciding factor in my decision” were his 3 telephone calls with then, Business Agent, Andy Kustich, who he stated is a very credible witness.
Former Business Agent, Andy Kustich has been caught 2 times using his position to put his wife in for Time in Lieu payments on multiple occasions, and resigned after being threatened with a complaint if he did not do so. He was allowed to resign and no complaint was filed, so he can run again next year, unlike Angelo who was told he cannot run for Union Office for 13 years for doing what both the Business Agent and President were doing.
Former Business Agent, Andy Kustich, would have said anything that Bobby O wanted him to say, in order to not have to pay back the money he got his wife paid and be allowed to resign with no complaint being filed.
Former Business Agent, Andy Kustich claims he put Jerry and Angelo on the payroll for a “Time in Lieu” violation, yet he does not have a copy of the Time in Lieu complaint, nor does he explain why he put them on for 8 hours when “in lieu of” claims have a 4 hour minimum. Check out pages 186 – 189 of the PCLCD. Did Andy claim the crew cleaned the hatch for 8 hours? Don’t think so.
Former Business Agent, Andy Kustich, told another member that he did not know that Angelo and Jerry got put not he payroll at PASHA until he read it on this website on February 2, 2015. He said that he put 2 guys on the payroll at SSA that day for Bobby O but did not know anything about PASHA.
Toilet went to PMA’s website and printed out copies of the paycheck details for Angelo and Jerry and made a big deal of saying how he went to PASHA to try and track down the “Superintendent” who put them on the payroll, and explained how he found out the DOL was investigating and the “2nd in Command” told them “no forcefulness” was involved.
What Toilet did not do was produce a copy of the alleged Time in Lieu claim, which would be required if there really was a claim, and he did not ask to see time card 97 from job number 2014040222 which would show who put Angelo and Jerry on the payroll.
Why not? Because there is no Time in Lieu complaint and he did not want anyone to know, it was Bobby’s former neighbor who put Angelo and Jerry on the payroll.
Toilet claims Andy said “a Union brother” called him about the alleged violation, but does not say his name even though he uses everyone else’s names, and he does not say he verified Andy’s story. Why?
On May 15th, a month and a half after he started his “investigation”, Toilet claims he spoke to Jerry who said he did a good thing for the Union and was a bodyguard for Bobby Olvera Jr., and he “kept saying he didn’t know what I was talking about and couldn’t help me.”
Right, Jerry did not know how he got on the payroll. It must have been a miracle. Cause longshoremen generally don’t know how they get on the payroll. Come on, every longshoreman keeps their hours in special books designed just to keep track of where they work and how many hours they get paid. But not Jerry?
Did Toilet ask Bobby O how his “bodyguards” got paid for protecting him at Mayor Garcetti’s luncheon at City Hall? Not according to his investigation notes. Why?
Why? Because Toilet’s entire investigation is a sham and a con, aimed at covering for the fact that Bobby Olvera Jr. bypassed the dispatch hall and called his Superintendent friend to have his bodyguards put on PASHA’s payroll, to impress his friend Mayor Garcetti at his City Hall luncheon victory celebration.
What is really disappointing is that the DOL fell for it, hook line and sinker.
Chug, chug, chug……
p.s. There are no secrets Larry. What you going to do now?
