“It’s official — union bosses make more money than chief executives. According to an explosive new report, labor presidents enjoyed a $60,000 advantage over private sector CEOs. And yet, big labor is attacking chief executives for taking advantage of their employees.
Union leaders earned an average salary of $252,370 in 2016, according to a new report from the Center for Union Facts. The center compiled salary information from federal labor filings from 192 of the largest national, state, and local unions. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, business leaders only earned an average of $194,350 — almost $60,000 less than union bosses, the Washington Free Beacon’s Bill McMorris reported.
When other perks were taken into consideration, union officials took home an average of $283,678.”
