OLMS Internet Public Disclsoure Room

The OLMS Internet Public Disclosure Room allows users to view and print reports filed by unions, union officers and employees, employers, and labor relations consultants for the year 2000 and after and reports filed by unions for trusts in which they have an interest as well as order reports for the year 1999 and prior. Additionally, users can search the union annual financial reports for the year 2000 and after and the trust reports for key data items.

OLMS Seminars & Outreach

OLMS has an active education and compliance assistance program to promote voluntary compliance with the LMRDA by informing union officers and others affected by the law of their responsibilities and by encouraging members to exercise their rights under the LMRDA.

OLMS District Offices throughout the country offer compliance assistance seminars to explain the requirements of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA). These seminars cover topics such as union reporting and recordkeeping, financial safeguards for union funds, elections of union officers, and training for union trustees on conducting audits in small unions. Some of these seminars are sponsored by labor unions, labor education programs, or other groups to provide training for their representatives while other seminars are solely OLMS sponsored and may be attended by any interested union officers and members. If your organization would like to sponsor a seminar with OLMS, contact the nearest OLMS District Office
