Notice of Data Incident

Notice of Data Incident
July 27, 2022

On April 27, 2022, LIUNA Local 1098 discovered unusual activity in an employee’s email account. We immediately began an investigation, which included working with third-party specialists to determine the nature and scope of the activity. The investigation determined there was unauthorized access to the email account between February 27, 2022 and April 27, 2022. While we have no reason to believe any information was misused as a result of this incident, the investigation could not rule out access to certain information contained in the account. Therefore, in an abundance of caution, we reviewed the account to determine the type of information contained therein and to whom the information related. On July 5, 2022, we completed the review and began confirming address information for potentially impacted individuals. The type of information in the account varies by individual but may include name and one or more of the following data elements: Social Security number, driver's license/state ID number, and/or financial account information.

In response to this incident, we changed account passwords and implemented additional security measures for our email accounts. In an abundance of caution, we are also offering potentially impacted individuals access to credit monitoring and identity protection services. To obtain more information about this incident or enroll in these services, individuals should contact our dedicated assistance line at 877-667-2943, Monday through Friday (except U.S. holidays), from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET.

In general, we encourage potentially impacted individuals to remain vigilant against incidents of identity theft and fraud by reviewing credit reports/account statements for suspicious activity and to detect errors. Under U.S. law, individuals are entitled to one free credit report annually from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus, TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. To order your free credit report, visit www.annualcreditreport.com or call 1-877-322-8228.

Individuals have the right to place an initial or extended “fraud alert” on a credit file at no cost. If individuals are a victim of identity theft, they are entitled to an extended fraud alert lasting seven years. As an alternative to a fraud alert, they have the right to place a “credit freeze” on a credit report. The credit freeze is designed to prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved without consent. Pursuant to federal law, individuals cannot be charged to place or lift a credit freeze on your credit report.


Should individuals wish to place a fraud alert or credit freeze, please contact the three major credit reporting bureaus listed below:
