LM File No. 537-270
Gordon M. Nash, Treasurer
Professional Lacrosse Players Association
14 Quaintance Avenue
Dear Mr. Nash:
This is in response to your continuing hardship exemption request for the Professional Lacrosse Players Association, LM File Number 537-270, for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007. Your request dated was received by the Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) National Office on August 26, 2009. A continuing hardship exemption request requires the requesting union to demonstrate that it cannot file Form LM-2 electronically without undue burden or expense.
You have attempted to purchase a digital signature but are unable to do so, because you are located in Canada and you do not have a United States mailing address, which is needed to complete the online application for the digital signature.
OLMS grants your continuing hardship exemption request for filing Form LM-2 electronically for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007, based on the information provided.
If you have any further questions about filing Form LM-2 pursuant to the hardship exemption, please call 202-693-0123 and reference your organization’s LM file number.
Andrew R. Davis, Chief
Division of Interpretations
