Mr. Flint Taylor, Business Manager/Secretary-Treasurer
Laborers Local 1197
PO Box 56
McLeansboro, IL 62859

Case Number:
LM Number: 049589

Dear Mr. Taylor:

This office has recently completed an audit of Laborers Local 1197 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, President Stephen Barker, and Administrative Assistant Carolyn Hall on
May 11, 2011, no violations of the LMRDA were disclosed in areas of financial activity included
in the CAP. This does not exhaust all possible problem areas, however, since the audit
conducted was limited in scope and did not include all areas of your union’s operation.

I want to extend my personal appreciation to Laborers Local 1197 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.

Sincerely,

Investigator
