Dear Member Cheryl Lee,
It is the decision of the Trial Court that you are guilty of the charges brought against you by unanimous vote.
The Court, therefore, has determined the following penalty:
A. You shall be fined the sum of $10,000.
C. You shall be expelled from membership in the Union effective immediately from all activities as a member or guest.
D. A public apology and/or recant of damaging statements equal to or greater than the offense should be made.
You have the right to appeal this decision of the Trial Court to a membership meeting of the Local within thirty (30) days of the date of this letter. The Local may affirm or reverse the decision or reduce the penalty. In the event you appeal to the membership of the Local, the penalties will be suspended pending the appeal.
