DETERMINATION

Determination of Complaints Filed under Title IV
of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959

On October 26 and 27, 2009, the Secretary of Labor received complaints alleging violations of Section 401 of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA), in the regularly scheduled election of officers conducted on June 26, 2009, by IBEW Local 58 in Detroit, Michigan.

Pursuant to Sections 402 and 601 of the LMRDA, the Department of Labor conducted an investigation. The investigation disclosed that ineligible retired members voted in the election and the union’s payroll deduction system was used to collect funds for campaign purposes.

Apprised of these findings, IBEW Local 58 agreed to conduct a new election of officers under the supervision of the Secretary of Labor, in accordance with Title IV of the LMRDA. The agreed upon remedial election was concluded on April 1, 2010. It is, therefore,

DETERMINED, that there is probable cause to believe that violations of Title IV of the LMRDA occurred which may have affected the outcome of the election conducted by IBEW Local 58 on June 26, 2009, but that these violations have been remedied by the new election, conducted in accordance with Title IV of the LMRDA, under the supervision of the Secretary of Labor, on April 1, 2010.

Therefore, civil action under Section 402(b) of the LMRDA to set aside the election conducted on June 26, 2009 is not warranted.

Signed this 15th day of July, 2010.
