LM Number: 542994
Dear Ms. Barrientos:
This office has recently completed an audit of ATU Local 1605 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 and Financial Secretary Ossie Robinson on February 19, 2016, the following problem was disclosed during the CAP. The matter listed below is not an exhaustive list of all possible problem areas since the audit conducted was limited in scope.
Failure to File Bylaws
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 1605 amended its bylaws on June 13, 2015, but did not file a copy with its LM report for that year.
Local 1605 has now filed a copy of its bylaws.
I want to extend my personal appreciation to ATU Local 1605 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.
