District Council Accounting Progress Report

In an effort to make our District Council more fiscally responsible, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters hired Certified Public Accountant Terence Mooney to audit the accounts and records of the Council during the time period between July 1, 2006 and August 9, 2009.

During the October hearings at the Javits Center, Mr. Mooney presented a report with recommendations for the District Council to achieve this goal. The following is an update on how we have addressed each item noted by Mr. Mooney.

(John's note: It was because of former President Pete Thomassen's leadership, policies and recommendations that our Council did not preform the necessary standard of care established by the UBC and Department of Labor. Internal controls were lacking and the affairs of the Council were conducted in a manner detrimental to the welfare and best interest of the Council and its members, yet the UBC in their infinite wisdom chose not to hold Thomassen responsible and instead name him assistant supervisor.)

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
