How Big Labor is spending your forced-dues dollars

Unions covered by the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA), the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRA), or the Foreign Service Act (FSA), with total annual receipts of $250,000 or more, are currently required to submit annual financial statements to the US Department of Labor. 

This page provides you with instructions, access, and more information on LM-2 Forms. These forms will tell you when the next union election is, how many members the union has, the salaries of officers and staff, and other useful information.
