I absolutely abhor the fact that in larger unions, such as the UAW, where tens of millions in dues are going into a coffer, and union leadership has little to no accountability and oversight for those funds, and they end up in the pockets of presidents and former presidents.
It helps to decimate and destroy the middle class. This is part of the reason unions are shrinking.

They dont have accountants or do audits?
I always thought spending matters needed the approval of the membership?
Or are you an expert who never attended his own local union meetings?
I do know that every year I get a large financial audit of Local 488's finances every year in the mail and we have a meeting where we question the elected leadership on it.I know that even spendin 20 bucks on a trophy for a kids team or a charitable donation must be passed before a meeting of the local union membership.Once a year all the locals get together sending delegates to the International convention where we do it at again at the national/international level.
