Dear Ms. Dyson-Ivy:
This office has recently completed an audit of Association of Western Pulp & Paper Workers 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 Secretary Treasurer Misty Dyson-Ivy on November 5, 2010, the following problems were disclosed during the CAP. The matters listed below are not an exhaustive list of all possible problem areas since the audit conducted was limited in scope.
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 or bylaws with its LM report when it makes changes to its constitution or bylaws. AWPPW Local 672 amended its constitution and bylaws in 2004 but failed to file a copy with its LM report for that year. Local 672’s constitution and bylaws were subsequently obtained during the course of the audit.
The Investigator wants to extend his personal appreciation to Association of Western Pulp & Paper Workers Local 672 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.
