Description

The series explored an unusual agreement between the Justice Department and Arthur Coia, general president of the troubled Laborers'International Union of North America, to settle a long-standing racketeering investigation. The Journal-Bulleting found that while Coia has publicly denied mob influence in his union, he admitted in secret testimony earlier this year that, at a face-to-face encounter in 1989, he learned the Chicago Mafia was "running the show." (May 14, 31, June 11, 25, July 2, Sept. 18, Dec. 17, 1995 and Jan. 1, 1996)
