The former head of a New Jersey longshoremen’s local pleaded guilty to asking for and taking $150,000 from an unnamed employer in exchange for not filing arbitration claims on behalf of union members, The Hill reported.  In total, Glenn Blicht, president of Local 1964 since 2009, raked in $1,000 “tickets” from the employer for about 10 years. Blicht faces five years in prison when he is sentenced February 12.
