Dear Sir or Madam:

As a full dues paying member of the union, I am requesting detailed financial information from you relative to union spending this year on matters both related and unrelated to our bargaining agreement. I would like an accounting of all expenses, including political expenditures, support or contributions to charitable, religious or ideological causes, lobbying activities, and other non-collective bargaining expenses.

This information will enable me to fully participate in the determination of the union’s spending policies and to assure myself that spending is consistent with our unit’s overall best interests. This information will also assist me in deciding whether I wish to become a Beck financial core member at some future time.

I would appreciate a prompt response to my request. Please advise me as to when this information will be forthcoming should there be any delay in sending it to me.
