DOL Releases December Labor Management Enforcement Data

The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Labor-Management Standards has released its criminal enforcement data for December 2007. During that month, OLMS obtained eight convictions, eight indictments, and court orders of restitution totaling $202,228.

The office's totals for fiscal year 2008 (which began on Oct. 1, 2007) now stand at 22 convictions, 36 indictments, and court-ordered restitution of $754,397. The bulk of the cases involved the embezzlement of union funds.

"The eight convictions this month represent a continuing reminder that OLMS serves a vital role in protecting America's union members," said Don Todd, deputy assistant secretary for Labor-Management Standards. "We are proud of our efforts to eliminate wrongdoing against unions, and our work has resulted in the successful prosecution of more than 820 individuals since 2001. We also have obtained 877 indictments and obtained court orders of restitution for more than $103 million during that time."

OLMS's public disclosure, at www.unionreports.gov contains union annual financial reports and additional forms required to be filed under the LMRDA. Other information, including synopses of OLMS enforcement actions, is available on OLMS's home page at www.olms.dol.gov.
