Shane Ross: Union loses its auditors
SIPTU is not the only trade union in a spot of bother.
The Building and Allied Trades Union (BATU) lost its auditors last year when Mazars resigned, pleading they had "not been able to meet with the National Executive Council to discuss certain matters. . . . Neither have we been able to obtain certain confirmations in relation to Union income and expenditure. Our relationship with Union representatives has, we believe, deteriorated over the past number of months.
"It is unlikely we will be able to carry out the necessary work in relation to 2009 in a satisfactory manner should we be re-appointed."
BATU's returns and accounts for 2009 are still outstanding. Nothing has been done about it.
