PORTLAND (AP) – A three-member panel has wrapped up its investigation of alleged fiscal mismanagement and pornography on computers at Bath Iron Works’ largest union.

The panel held hearings in April into the allegations against the leadership of Machinists Local S6. It presented its confidential recommendation this week to the president of the international union, R. Thomas Buffenbarger.

John Carr, spokesman for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, says Buffenbarger has 15 days to make a decision.

Local S6 was placed in trusteeship in March and local officials were suspended while the international panel investigated the allegations.
