On or around March 6, a spreadsheet containing the names and contact information of active and retired Local 522 members was sent by a Local 522 employee to the Sacramento Central Labor Council (CLC).  The spreadsheet contained member Social Security numbers, but was only supposed to provide member mailing addresses.  The email did not stop at CLC and was forwarded to Capitol Mailing, Inc.  The mistake was discovered on March 23 after Local 522 members received mailing labels that displayed their Social Security numbers.
