WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced the publication of a final revision to Form LM-10, a federal form that promotes transparency for workers.

Published by the department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards, the revision amends the current form to include a box for certain employers who engage in reportable persuader or surveillance transactions or agreements to report if they are a federal contractor or subcontractor. An employer under a federal contract or subcontract is required to provide their Unique Entity Identifier, if any, and provide information on the federal agencies for which they provide services.

The revised form will be the required form for all Form LM-10s filed on or after Aug. 28, 2023.

“This revision to Form LM-10 promotes transparency for workers,” said Office of Labor-Management Standards Director Jeffrey Freund. “This change will enable employees of federal contractors and subcontractors, and the public more broadly, to be informed about the indirect source of funding used to persuade or surveil them in connection with organizing and collective bargaining.”

Certain employers must file a Form LM-10 to report, among other activities, agreements with consultants – and other payments and expenditures – made to persuade employees concerning their organizing and collective bargaining rights or to surveil the activities of employees and unions involved in a labor dispute with such employers. 

Revised LM-10 Forms will be available on the OLMS Electronic Filing System by Aug. 28. View Form LM-10s filed by employers in the OLMS Online Public Disclosure Room.
