Case Number: ||||||||||
Dear Ms. Huezo:
This office has recently completed an audit of Letter Carriers, Branch 2293 under the Compliance Audit Program (CAP) to determine your organization’s compliance with the provisions of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA). As discussed during the exit interview with you and past Secretary Treasurer Laura Mims on January 8, 2009, the following problem was disclosed during the CAP. The matter listed below is not an exhaustive list of all possible problem areas since the audit conducted was limited in scope.
The audit disclosed:
The audit disclosed a violation of LMRDA Section 201(b), which requires labor organizations to file annual financial reports accurately disclosing their financial condition and operations. The Labor Organization Annual Report Form LM-3 filed by Branch 2293 for fiscal year ending March 31, 2007, was deficient in the following area:
Failure to File Bylaws
The audit disclosed a violation of LMRDA Section 201(a), which requires that a union submit a copy of its revised constitution and bylaws with its LM report when it makes changes to its constitution or bylaws. Branch 2293 amended its constitution in 2008 and bylaws in 1971, but did not file a copy with its LM report for those years.
Branch 2293 has now filed a copy of its constitution and bylaws.
I want to extend my personal appreciation to Letter Carriers, Branch 2293 for the cooperation and courtesy extended during this compliance audit. I strongly recommend that you make sure this letter and the compliance assistance materials provided to you are passed on to future officers. If we can provide any additional assistance, please do not hesitate to call.
