Dear Ms. Townsend:
This office has recently completed an audit of the State, County & Municipal Employees, Local 1644 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, International Area Field Director Yvonne Robinson, and Local 1644 Executive Director Charles Clark on February 15, 2011, 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 audit disclosed a violation of LMRDA Section 201(a), which requires that a union submit a copy of its revised constitution and bylaws with its LM report when it makes changes to its constitution or bylaws. Local 1644 amended its constitution and bylaws in 2009, but did not file a copy with its LM report for that year. Local 1644 has now filed a copy of its constitution and bylaws, and no further action is required.
I want to extend my personal appreciation to the State, County & Municipal Employees, Local 1644 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.
cc: Mr. Charles Clark, Executive Director
