U.S. questions union vote

July 10, 1992

Local 1923 of the America Federation of Government Employees has been notified that the U.S. Labor Department has found "probable cause" that there was an election violation during its November balloting, according to John Gage, president of the local.

The Labor Department has asked the union to discuss the matter further with the agency or to voluntarily hold another election, Mr. Gage said.

The issue is being handled by the national union's attorney, Mr. ++ Gage said.

The alleged violation concerned whether the union acted properly in disqualifying a retired member from running for president because of non-payment of dues, said Mr. Gage, who subsequently won the election, defeating Phillip Otto.
