Overdose Victim's Dad Rallies Teamsters in Fight With McKesson

  • Union to picket at drug distributor’s meeting of shareholders
  • Investors set to vote Wednesday on executive-compensation plan

Travis Bornstein took to the stage last summer at the International Brotherhood of Teamsters’ annual convention in Las Vegas to talk about his son Tyler, who died of an overdose at 23.

The father, a former Marine and president of a union chapter in Akron, Ohio, told the audience at the Paris Hotel how Tyler got hooked on painkillers after multiple elbow surgeries. It eventually led to a heroin addiction.
