Serious oversight



To the editor:

I am a DC 37 retiree. Imagine my surprise when I received an email that said the union’s retirees association was placed under emergency administratorship by AFSCME, the parent union. 

The retirees association has not filed IRS tax returns in six years, resulting in a revocation of the tax-exempt status the association enjoyed, according to parent union’s international retirees director. Also, no outside audit has been conducted since 2017.

Didn’t the association’s leaders learn from the errors of the past, when DC 37 had a huge corruption scandal? So far, there is no evidence of any individual financial wrongdoing. But these are serious issues. Hopefully, it’s just stupidity.
