BLET News Briefs

New reporting forms available for BLET Divisions, SLBs, GCAs

Under the Constitution of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, all subordinate bodies are required to perform a monthly audit.

Beginning in June, all BLET general committees of adjustment, state legislative boards and local divisions should begin completing a monthly audit to comply with the IBT Constitution.

To assist with the audit, the National Division has prepared a new report form known as a "Trustees/Auditing Committee Report." A copy of the report can be downloaded and printed here:

BLET Bylaws provide that divisions will be audited by "trustees" of the division. The vice president, local chairman and legislative representative are designated as "trustees" by the Bylaws.

The general committees and state legislative boards should be audited monthly by their respective auditing committees. The monthly audits do not require the convening of the auditing committees. The audits can be performed by mail, if necessary.

Once the monthly audit is performed, the records should be maintained at the division, general committee or state legislative board. There is no requirement to send the audit to the National Division or the IBT.
