Re: Case Number: 130-13591(77)
Dear Ms. Altobelli:
This office has recently completed an audit of Local 5077 - Brookhaven Memorial Federation of Nurses & Health Professionals 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 February 20, 2009, 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 CAP disclosed a violation of LMRDA Section 201(a), which requires labor organizations to submit copies of its current constitution and bylaws to the Secretary of Labor. Local 5077 – Brookhaven Memorial Federation of Nurses & Health Professionals submitted the union’s current constitution and bylaws dated March 11, 2004, during the audit. No further enforcement action will be taken.
I want to extend my personal appreciation to Local 5077 - Brookhaven Memorial Federation of Nurses & Health Professionals 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.
