Re: Case No. ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Mr. Stroup:

This office has recently completed an audit of IBEW Local 1289 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 October 29, 2009, the following problem was disclosed during the CAP. The matter cited below is not indicative of all possible problem areas since the audit conducted was limited in scope.

The CAP disclosed that Local 1289 purchased a Ford Explorer in July 2006. That vehicle was omitted
– in error – from the 2008 LM-2 filing. An acceptable, amended filing for that year has been received by the Department of Labor in Washington, DC. Consequently, no further action will be taken in this matter.

I want to extend my personal appreciation for your and your entire staff’s cooperation and courtesy during this compliance audit. If we can be of any assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to call.
