Office of Labor-Management Standards, Department of Labor.

The Office of Labor-Management Standards of the Department of Labor(Department) is proposing revisions to the Form LM-10 Employer Report and to theForm LM-20 Agreements and Activities Report, which are required under section 203 of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA or Act), 29U.S.C. 433.
