DETERMINATION

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

On September 28, 2010, 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 April 15, 2010, by Communication Workers of America Local Council 23089 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Pursuant to Sections 402 and 601 of the LMRDA, the Department of Labor conducted an investigation. The investigation disclosed that Local Council 23089 denied members the opportunity to vote by failing to mail ballots to 63 members who had recently transferred into the local from other locations.

Apprised of these findings, Local Council 23089 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 February 4, 2011. 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 Association of Flight Attendants – CWA Local Council 23089 on April 15, 2010, 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 February 4, 2011.

Therefore, civil action under Section 402(b) of the LMRDA to set aside the election conducted on April 15, 2010 is not warranted.

Signed this 15th day of March, 2011.
