    ULLICO Reaches $13M Settlement with Georgine - By Richard Korman, McGraw-Hill Construction | ENR
    ULLICO Inc., the insurer owned by union pension funds, has reached a $13-million settlement with its former CEO, Robert A. Georgine, longtime president of the AFL-CIO Building and Construction Trades Dept.

    The insurer forced out Georgine in 2003 after a scandal erupted over an insider stock-trading scheme involving Georgine and other directors.

    During the scandal, Georgine's rich compensation package and alleged self-dealing by the directors, including several building trades presidents, also was extensively examined by an independent investigator. Since the investigator completed his report, ULLICO says, new loans by ULLICO to a company controlled by a Georgine relative came to light.
