New York Times: Union Boss Sentenced

The New York Times reported that the former manager of a pension fund for New York City’s main union of school bus drivers, who pleaded guilty last August to obstructing justice, was sentenced yesterday to five months in prison and five months of home confinement. Judge Kimba Wood of Federal District Court sentenced the former manager, Ann Chiarovano. The union, Local 1181 of the Amalgamated Transit Union, has been placed in trusteeship, and Salvatore Battaglia, its president, is going on trial on charges of extortion, bribery and cooperating with the Genovese crime family.
