Typical Union Embezzlement Reported

Mismanagement plagues monopolistic U.S. labor organizations
A secretary accused of embezzling from a Butte labor union where she was employed pleaded guilty to three felonies Monday in Missoula, Montana federal court.

Teresa Wilson, 57, changed her plea less than a month after initially being arraigned on felony charges of labor union embezzlement, bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. She is accused of embezzling between $171,300 and $219,319 over the course of about six years.

According to court documents, Wilson was employed by Butte Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 41 from 1997 to 2010. For eight years she also served as president of the Central Labor Council, an organization that promotes organized labor throughout Southwest Montana.

The Department of Labor's Office of Labor Management Standards conducted the investigation into Wilson. That office reviewed her personal bank records and found $177,337 in Central Labor Council checks deposited directly into her accounts. From 2003 to 2010, the Office of Labor Management Standards also found evidence of cash deposits of $237,000. In interviews, Wilson admitted to a gambling problem and "asserted that the cash deposits were from (gambling) and not from embezzlement of cash monies that would have come into the union as dues payments."

The investigation also found $100,210 in checks from Local 41 and $87,909 from its apprenticeship training fund were funneled into the Central Labor Council and then to Wilson. She allegedly wrote checks to herself or her husband, made unauthorized withdrawals and got cash back on deposits.

In an effort to conceal her activities, Wilson forged signatures of other labor council officers and the council's former treasurer.
Wilson faces up to 30 years in prison, $1 million in fines, restitution, and five years of supervised release. Sentencing in the case has been set for Sept. 7 in Missoula federal court. Wilson has been released on special conditions.
