Dear Mr. McClintock:
This office has recently completed an audit of Painters AFL-CIO Local 921 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 January 11, 2013, 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.
The audit disclosed a violation LMRDA Section 201(b), which requires labor organizations to file annual financial reports accurately disclosing their financial condition and operations. The audit disclosed the following violation of this requirement.
Failure to File LM Report
The Labor Organization Annual Report, Form LM-3, is required to be filed within 90 days of the end of a labor organization’s fiscal year. The president and secretary-treasurer are personally responsible for timely filing the union’s LM report.
Local 921 failed to timely file the required report with the Secretary of Labor for fiscal year ending December 31, 2011. On January 2, 2013 Local 921 filed the delinquent LM-3 report for fiscal year ending December 31, 2011.
Based on your assurance that Local 921 will timely file required reports in the future, OLMS will take no further enforcement action at this time regarding the above violation.
I want to extend my personal appreciation to Painters AFL-CIO Local 921 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.
