Companies Office Lawyers have asked EPMU to forward their full audited accounts
The EPMU have been instructed by the Registrar of Incorporated Societies lawyers to forward to them their full audited accounts so they can posted on the Incorporated Societies website for public scrutiny.
The current accounts filed on the Incorporated Societies Office carries a recognised New Zealand Auditors letterhead but no notes or Auditor’s statement.
This has been happening since 2005. They have failed to comply with the law for more than 8 years, almost all of them under the leadership of Andrew Little.
The EPMU have been asked to file immediately to the Societies Office and not to upload the accounts themselves onto the website.
Observation by the Owl
There is continuing governance issues within the CTU affiliated Unions headed up by Helen Kelly. This is the third major player instructed to file full accounts by the Registrar. CTU affiliated Unions are continuing to fail in their legal obligations.
A public inquiry is needed urgently to get the bottom of this matter and maybe all union members’ funds should be frozen until an inquiry is completed.
Workers are more important to employers than unions as employers give workers opportunities, career paths, training and great work environments. I was given an idea from a reader about running an ad campaign.
