The executive board of the Teamsters Union voted unanimously Saturday to reject a government proposal calling for five Teamster vice presidents to resign, scuttling efforts to settle the Justice Department's unprecedented racketeering suit against the nation's largest union. James T. Grady, general counsel of the 1.6-million-member union, branded the settlement proposed by U.S. Atty. Rudolph W. Giuliani "totally unacceptable."

William J. McCarthy, the Teamsters' top man in New England for two decades, today upset the late Jackie Presser's handpicked choice to succeed him as president of the nation's largest union. The Teamsters' 17-member General Executive Board elected McCarthy, 69, of Boston over Secretary-Treasurer Weldon Mathis, whom Presser had named acting president on May 4. Asked what his major challenge would be in leading the union, McCarthy told a packed news conference: "I've got loads of them.

The price of democracy is usually high wherever it rears its beautiful head, and the price is certainly mounting rapidly in the Teamsters Union. Nearly 600 Teamsters locals in the U.S. and Canada are holding closely supervised elections to select delegates to the union's 1991 international convention in preparation for its first-ever direct membership vote for new top officers.

The symbolism is blatant: The last Teamsters Union convention was a tightly controlled one, held in "Sin City"--Las Vegas--in 1986. This year the union, badly split as leaders democratically struggle for power, will open its 1991 convention June 24 at family-oriented Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. Last time, I and about a dozen other reporters were bullied by hefty union "guards" as we tried to interview delegates.

The Teamsters Union has made a counteroffer to the government in an attempt to settle the massive racketeering suit filed against the union by the Justice Department last June, according to knowledgeable sources. The union's proposal, as might be expected, would give the government considerably less control over the union than two Justice Department settlement offers that the Teamsters board rejected within the last five weeks.
