The Newspaper Guild of Albany is deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Teamsters leader Mike Cipollo.
”Mikey was a tough negotiator who really looked out for his members,” said Guild President Tim O’Brien. ”Every year we would sit down together to talk to the company about health care costs. Despite his gruff, working class exterior, Mike was an incredibly smart guy who would sit there doing all the math in his head. He was amazingly sharp. Nothing got by him.”
The Guild sends its condolences to Mike’s family, friends and members.
