Mr. Jeffrey Behr, President Railroad Signalmen, AFL-CIO Local Lodge 225
8 Centennial Court
West Seneca, NY 14224-3723
Case Number: 120-09258 LM Number: 517102

Dear Mr. Behr:

This office has recently completed an audit of Railroad Signalmen, AFL-CIO, Local Lodge 225 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 Financial Secretary Carmen LaFalce on December 19,
2012, 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 Local Lodge 225 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
