Trustees act as internal auditors, and meet at least once a year to review the local’s finances. The primary duty of Trustees is ensure that all union resources (money or assets) are used for legitimate union purposes as authorized by our membership and in accordance with our constitution and bylaws. The secondary function of Trustees is to review the way that the Secretary-Treasurer is doing their job and to suggest ways that the financial affairs of the local might be improved.
