The Trump administration sent letters to the presidents of two major international labor unions warning that their organizations are “disproportionately subject to embezzlement.”
The Department of Labor (DOL) sent the letters, obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation, Oct. 6 to United Steelworkers (USW) President Thomas Conway and American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) President Everett Kelley.
DOL officials familiar with the letters who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter told the DCNF that this type of action is considered “very rare.”
