The president of a New Jersey local of the International Longshoreman’s Association, the union that covers dockworkers on the US east and Gulf coasts, has been arrested for bribery. Glenn Blicht faces 20 years in prison, according to this report from CNBC, if he is found guilty of demanding and receiving some $150,000 in bribes over a 10-year period. It is alleged that Mr Blicht demanded cash from an unnamed employer of ILA members in return for them not filing arbitration claims against the employer.
