1586 Tolbert v. IEB

Case No: 1586


A Local Union officer will not be answerable to charges for errors made in performing the duties of his or her office in the absence of an allegation of malice or ill will. The charge that the Trustees failed to follow proper procedures in reporting the results of their audit to the Local Executive Board clearly fails under this rule. There is also no evidence that the Trustees acted maliciously when they obtained access to Tolbert’s payroll records.
