In an article in the June 12 edition of Daily Variety about the Dept. of Labor supervising a rerun of Local 871’s election, one of the four labor federal law violations cited in the DOL’s investigative findings involved a campaign letter posted on the local’s Website by past president Pamela Alch. The story misidentified the title of the letter as “Members of Local 871 — Let’s Vote for the Right Candidates,” which was the title of a second letter that was mailed to members by former business agent Lainie Miller. The DOL also found that the letter mailed by Miller was in violation because its mailing granted discriminatory treatment to Alch by not affording other candidates the same opportunity, as prescribed in the local’s campaign policy. The DOL noted that its findings were “not to be construed as a final determination by the Secretary of Labor that violations have occurred which may have affected the outcome of the election.”
