WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced the publication of a proposed revision to the department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards’ Form LM-10. The proposed revision would require certain employers who are already required to file Form LM-10s to report their status as a federal contractor or subcontractor.

The proposed revision would amend the forms to include a box for certain employers who engage in reportable persuader or surveillance transactions or agreements to indicate if they are a federal contractor or subcontractor. An employer under a federal contract or subcontract would then be required to provide their GSA Unique Entity Identifier, if any, and provide information on the federal agencies for which they provide services.

“The proposed revision to Form LM-10 would promote transparency and support harmonious labor relations,” said Office of Labor-Management Standards Director Jeffrey Freund. “The change would give workers access to information 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 areas, 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. 

Submit public comments on the proposed revision by Oct. 13, 2022. Those who submit comments, including duplicate comments, should understand and expect that the comment, including any personal information provided, will become a matter of public record. OLMS will post comments without change at www.regulations.gov and include any personal information provided. The division posts comments gathered and submitted by a third-party organization as a group, using a single document ID number at the site.
