D.C. Local Gets Clean Bill of Health from Parent Union

Closure at last could be at hand in the Washington, D.C. teachers’ union scandal.  The parent organization of the Washington Teachers Union, the American Federation of Teachers, recently announced that local officials had fixed certain problems cited by the Department of Labor in the WTU’s 2005 financial report.  A spokesperson for the AFT called the few remaining problems “routine technical shortcomings.”  The action is unrelated to a complaint the DOL filed in February over allegations of irregularities in the local election of more than a year ago.  (Washington Times, 3/13/06).
