Remember that little ol’ agency for the Department of Labor that union-funded politicians worked to downsize through a budget slashing? Well, enforcement data from the Office of Labor-Management Standards is a good reminder that union officials need oversight. Here’s the latest:
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) today announced its criminal enforcement data for October 2007. OLMS obtained 16 indictments and five convictions during the first month of fiscal year 2008, and court-ordered restitution in October amounted to $63,499. These indictments and convictions primarily involve union officers and employees who have embezzled union funds.
