NEW: Donald Iannazzi Officially Leaves Local 1033

Monday, July 02, 2012

 

Influential labor leader Donald Iannazzi has stepped aside as business manager for Local 1033, GoLocalProv has learned.

Ron Coia has now taken over the top spot at the organization, a position that paid Iannazzi $216,887 in salary and another $70,321 in “other compensation in 2010, according to Local 1033’s 990 filing with the IRS.

Iannazzi, who was elected Local 1033’s business manager in 1998, has long been a staple in organized labor in the state. After negotiating a new contract for his roughly 900 union members with the Taveras administration last summer, he announced his intentions to retire by the end of 2012. That contract helped the city save $26 million over four years.

"Local 1033 was an honest and forthright partner in this negotiation,” Mayor Taveras said at the time. “Leadership came to the table in good faith and with a realistic understanding of the difficult steps we must take to restore Providence's fiscal health. These are not symbolic cuts: these are real changes that will help us address the fiscal crisis we face, both short and long term. It is never easy to take a pay cut. I truly appreciate 1033's willingness to be a partner in our effort to put Providence back on solid financial footing.”
