    Based on the findings of Mr. Siedle, it is obvious that the Teamster New York Pension Fund was a victim of breach of fiduciary duty and other violations of ERISA provisions that are in place to, among other things, assure the security of workers retirement benefits. These provisions of ERISA can “EASILY” be found at the (EBSA) Employee Benefit Security Administration website. The EBSA is an agency at the DOL that has the responsibility to enforce ERISA provisions. Although the DOL had oversight responsibilities of the CSPF for more than 30 years, the EBSA was missing in action when it came to enforcing ERISA. It appears the EBSA has also failed to protect the New York Pension Fund as well. Isn’t it ironic that the ERISA provisions that are not being enforced can be found at the EBSA/enforcer’s website; “point being, how could they not know what their responsibilities are?”
