Re: Case Number: ||||||||||||||
Dear Ms. Todisco:
This office has recently completed an audit of RWWP 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 Business Manager John Mongello and you on August 24, 2010, 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 the following other violation(s):
The audit revealed a violation of LMRDA Section 502 (Bonding), which requires that union officers and employees be bonded for no less than 10 percent of the total funds handled by those individuals or their predecessors during the preceding fiscal year. RWWP’s officers and employees are currently bonded for $10,000, but they must be bonded for at least $11,800.
Adequate bonding coverage of $30,000 was obtained and documentation provided during the audit. No further enforcement action will be taken.
I want to extend my personal appreciation to RWWP 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.
