America’s most powerful Mafia family active in unions: indictment

Feds say Salvester Zarzana, former head of Carptenters Local 926, is a Genovese family soldier, court papers show 


Salvester Zarzana, a former president of Carpenters Local 926, was identified by the feds as a soldier in the Genovese family in an indictment unsealed by Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch.

The FBI busted 11 reputed gangsters and union bosses Wednesday, charging that the most powerful mafia family in America continues to infiltrate unions around the city.

Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch unsealed an indictment naming 11 individuals in a variety of schemes tied to the Genovese crime family.

One of those arrested was Salvester Zarzana, a former president of Carpenters Local 926 who was identified by the feds as a soldier in the Genovese family.

Zarzana has been connected to a group of disgraced union officials who are organizing an off-shoot union that authorities believe is moving to take over the biggest construction union in the city, the District Council of Carpenters.

The Daily News revealed Sunday the ongoing investigation of the upstart Amalgamated Carpenters & Joiners’ effort.

Zarzana is “closely associated” with Angelo Bisceglie, an attorney who’s heavily involved in the upstart Amalgamated union. The purported takeover is under investigation by a court-appointed review officer, Dennis Walsh.

Zarzana was kicked out as president of the Carpenters Local 926 over questions about his abuse of union credit card. He denied knowing anything about the Genovese crime family or the mafia in general in a sworn affidavit made last year.

One of those arrested Wednesday was Conrad Ianniello, identified as a capo or captain in the Genovese family. He’s accused of using his mob connections to shake down contractors and even demand payments from vendors at the San Gennaro street fair.

Why none other than the IUPAT, James Williams Sr and Spanky Jr. They Gave a Million in financing to Amalgamated, Angelo and Zarzana and lets not forget this Amalgamated Carpenters and Joiners is an AFFLILIATED Local of the IUPAT who the feds are now saying”

  8. Zarzana was a bi-sexual, and would pick a muscular carpenter looking to get into the union and guarantee him a "book" if he agreed to perform sexual acts. Zarzana controlled the shape, which was the key to getting work. He was overweight with diabetes and couldn't get an erection.

  9. Zarzana's sexual orientation is of no interest, however his manipulation of the shape and providing a book, as well as arranging overtime jobs to his male lovers is of concern. His bi-sexuality was known to many people. The issue is union money, and pension funds, and a loss of benefits to our brothers. Zarzana also arranged for some contractors to operate with non-union help in return for kick backs, and that has impacted on all of us.

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
