This complaint was filed with the Public Disclosure Commission on March 28, 2018. The complaint alleged that the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1439 ABC Fund (Committee), may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 by failing to timely and accurately file C-3 and C-4 reports.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the applicable C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Committee; and the response provided by the Committee.
Staff found that the Committe filed a total of 56 reports late in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Although the committee filed 56 reports late in a span of 3 years, staff found no evidence of a material violation that would require conducting a more formal investigation or pursuing enforcement action.
Case closed with a written warning.
