DETERMINATION

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

On September 4, 2009, the Secretary of Labor received a complaint 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 3, 2009, by Carpenters Local 1644 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Pursuant to Sections 402 and 601 of the LMRDA, the Department of Labor conducted an investigation. The investigation disclosed that Carpenters Local 1644 violated the LMRDA when it allowed contracting members to vote in contravention of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters Constitution.

Apprised of these findings, Carpenters Local 1644 agreed to conduct a new election under the supervision of the Secretary of Labor, in accordance with Title IV of the LMRDA. The agreed upon remedial election was concluded on January 20, 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 Carpenters Local 1644 on June 3, 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 January 20, 2010.

Therefore, civil action under Section 402(b) of the LMRDA to set aside the election conducted on June 3, 2009 is not warranted.

Signed this 12th day of March, 2010.
