Charles River Laboratories International Board Member Should Use Sarbanes-Oxley Disclosure Rules in Non-Profit Role, Asserts 1199 SEIU

Union asks board member to seek restatement of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center audit

BOSTON, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Charles River Laboratories International director Stephen Chubb should apply the same Sarbanes-Oxley standards used by Charles River Laboratories and other publicly traded companies to his role on the board of CareGroup, the parent organization of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), according to labor group 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East.

Sarbanes-Oxley does not apply directly to nonprofit organizations. However, under Massachusetts law, nonprofit directors must use their specialized knowledge and experience in their role as nonprofit fiduciaries (Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 180 section 6C).

The letter asks that fiduciaries request the withdrawal a
