Office of Labor-Management Standards Releases 2005 Annual Report

The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) has released its 2005 annual report. This report highlights the fiscal year success of the agency and the importance of its role in supporting America's workforce by enforcing the Labor-Management Disclosure and Reporting Act of 1959 (LMRDA).

"I am very proud of the OLMS staff and what they have been able to accomplish in 2005 in enforcing the LMRDA," stated Don Todd, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Labor-Management Programs.

In working to safeguard union assets, OLMS conducted compliance assistance sessions on financial reporting and record-keeping while also initiating extensive investigations in 2005. These investigations led to 97 criminal convictions for crimes involving union assets.

Additionally, in working toward ensuring union democracy, OLMS completed 127 election investigations and supervised 35 union officer elections in 2005.
