Crime, Corruption & Racketeering

The Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) conducts investigations to determine if violations of the Labor-Management Relations and Disclosure Act (LMRDA) provisions have occurred.

Investigations are initiated based on various sources such as complaints from union members; information developed by OLMS as a result of reviewing reports filed; information developed during an OLMS audit of a union’s books and records; and information obtained from other government agencies. Investigations may involve civil matters (such as an election of union officers) or criminal matters (such as embezzlement of union funds).

Union Decertifications

Unionized employees can elect to revoke a union's right to represent them through a process called a decertification. In order to decertify a union, a majority of the unionized employees must vote to remove the union in an election overseen by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
