The LMRDA primarily promotes union democracy and financial integrity in private sector labor unions through standards for union officer elections and union trusteeships and safeguards for union assets. Additionally, the LMRDA promotes labor union and labor-management transparency through reporting and disclosure requirements for labor unions and their officials, employers, labor relations consultants, and surety companies.
  • Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) ‐ is an independent agency whose mission is to preserve and promote labor‐management peace and cooperation. The agency provides mediation and conflict resolution services to industry, government agencies, and communities.
