Dear Mr. Perry:
This office has recently completed an audit of Teamsters LU 82 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 on July 13, 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 and bylaws with its LM report when it makes changes to its constitution or bylaws. Local 82 amended its constitution and bylaws in 2008, but did not file a copy with its LM report for that year.
A copy of your new bylaws was obtained during the audit and will be forwarded to Washington to be associated with your disclosure file. In the future it is understood that if you have changes to your bylaws you will check yes in item 18 on your LM report filed during the year the bylaws are changed and will file a copy of your amended bylaws with our National Office.
I want to extend my personal appreciation to Teamsters LU 82 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.
