CHICAGO — The treasurer of a United Steelworkers union local has been accused of embezzling union funds.

A grand jury in U.S. District Court in Florida indicted Martin E. Mosher on five counts of allegedly embezzling more than $44,000 and making false financial reports.

According to the indictment, Mosher reported in USW Local 458’s annual financial reports for 2007, 2008 and 2009 that he received $1,200 to $1,400 per year for his services, but he actually extracted more than $14,000 from the union treasury in 2007, more than $11,000 in 2008 and some $19,000 in 2009.

The USW is seeking a return of the money, according to the indictment.

An effort to reach a union spokesperson was unsuccessful.

The U.S. attorney’s office was not able to supply additional information about Mosher.
