election -- indeed, beyond the election -- the broad2 organizational structure of the District Council in accordance3 with this proposed reconfiguration.4 I also would like to say, Judge, that we have5 committed to Dennis Walsh, the review officer, to provide to6 him well in advance the beginning of the election cycle which7 we are agreed with Mr. Walsh should begin on August 15th, with8 an eye to having elections on December 15th. We have committed9 to Mr. Walsh that any structural reconfiguration of locals or10 other components in the District Council will be communicated11 to Mr. Walsh and to the U.S. Attorney well in advance of that12 August 15th step-off point with respect to development and13 promulgation of rules for the election.14 So on the point of union democracy, we are satisfied15 that the direct-indirect discussion about who should elect the16 District Council officers is, in our view, secondary. We had,17 prior to the indictment of and conviction of Mr. Divine, we had18 indirect elections and we had direct elections prior to the19 indictment and conviction of Mr. Ford.20 It is very apparent to us that the much more critical21 question is how do we empower this delegate body to have an22 effective and executive role at Hudson Street as opposed to a23 passive and ultimately marginal role.24 THE COURT: I know this could be a naive question, but25 just trying to understand how this works, you have elections inSOUTHERN DISTRICT REPORTERS, P.C.(212) 805-0300

Perhaps delegates should have final authority, final2 authority on budget, expenditures, the overall organizing plan,3 collective bargaining and contracts.4 Perhaps the delegates should have the authority to5 review, approve, reject, hire, discipline and fire business6 agents, shop stewards, organizers and counsel representatives.7 Perhaps delegates should have the sole authority to8 hire, evaluate and terminate the inspector general and the9 chief compliance officer.10 Perhaps the delegates should have the authority to11 approve or reject the appointment of trustees and removal of12 trustees from the benefit funds.13 Perhaps delegates should review job referral14 activities and records to ensure that referrals are being15 conducted fairly and properly.16 Perhaps the delegates, a CPA and inspector general17 should constitute a new District Council audit committee and18 officers should not be members of that audit committee.19 Perhaps --20 THE COURT: Excuse me for interrupting.21 These all sound like significant suggestions, but the22 audit committee, is that perhaps, perhaps a stronger, is that a23 real enforcement mechanism in corporations? Audit committees24 play very vital and important role. Is there an audit25 committee now? I guess I should know that and I don't. And ifSOUTHERN DISTRICT REPORTERS, P.C.(212) 805-0300
