    Be advised that I am an attorney representing Teamsters Local 786. The above referenced story that was published today is false and I demand that you take it down and print a retraction of it immediately. The facts are simple, Teamsters Local 786 is only a tenant in that building which is owned by a different Teamsters Local. Local 786 did not have anything to do with this event.
