THE BUFFEY FILES

 ABOUT MR BUFFENBARGER AND THE INTERNATIONAL

      1)   NEW ELECTION COMING UP FOR HE AND HIS BUDDIES   HERE IS WHY

        http://www.dol.gov/olms/regs/compliance/volun_agree_2013.htm

    On August 15, 2013, the Department entered into a voluntary compliance agreement with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), located in Upper Marlboro, Md., concerning the 2013 election of international officers.  The IAM agreed to conduct new nominations and a new election, if necessary, for the offices of international president, general secretary-treasurer and eight general vice presidents under OLMS supervision prior to June 2014.  The investigation disclosed that the union failed to provide notice of nomination to the membership regarding the nomination of international officers, local lodges did not provide notice of their nomination meetings to all members, and members were denied a reasonable opportunity to nominate candidates when some members were working at the time of the nomination meeting and/or endorsement vote and no alternative method of nomination was provided.  The agreement follows an investigation by the OLMS Washington District Office.

     2)     UNVERIFIED-  But the intrusion of the IAM over the local 751 may not be the first time.  About 1985-86 the Alaska Airlines IAM local went on strike for about 90 days.  I have heard that it was an issue totally driven by the International, over the objections of the local. IF someone could verify, it might be worthwhile tom find out the details.   email me at s.publius@gmail.com.

    9) HOW TO FIND OUT WHAT IAM PAYS FOR BUFFYS PENSION 

    Most do NOT realize that since about 2008, the IRS990 forms now show the base pay and contributions to pension plans and insurance

     for the top five in any non-profit 501 type corporations and UNIONS But in the LM2- only the gross pay is shown.

    The Local is supposed to have copies available of the three most recent IRS990 forms for the International.  No membership needed to

    obtain.  ANYONE, including press, man on the street, etc can request copies.  Time and place for providing
    copies in response to requests made in person. A tax-exempt organization must:Provide copies of required documents under

    section 6104(d) in response to a request made in person at its principal,regional and district offices during regular business hours, and
    Provide copies to a requester on the day the request is made, except for unusual circumstances (see below)…page 76
