Collection Title: Local Union Report (EEO-3).

OMB-Number: 3046-0006.

Frequency of Report: Biennial.

Type of Respondent: Referral local unions with 100 or more members.

Description of Affected Public: Referral local unions and independent or unaffiliated referral unions and similar labor organizations.

Number of Responses: 3,000.

Reporting Hours: 3,000 (4,500 hours including recordkeeping).

Number of Forms: 1.

Federal Cost: $43,500.

Abstract: Section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 2000e-8(c), requires employers to make and keep records relevant to a determination of whether unlawful employment practices have been or are being committed and to make reports therefrom as required by the EEOC. Accordingly, the EEOC has issued regulations which set forth the reporting requirements for various kinds of labor organizations. Referral local unions with 100 or more members have been required to submit EEO-3 reports since 1967 (biennially beginning in 1986).

EEO-3 data are used by the EEOC to investigate charges of discrimination against referral local unions. In addition, the data are used to support EEOC decisions and conciliations, and for research. Pursuant to section 709(d) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, EEO-3 data are also shared with 86 State and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies (FEPAs).

Burden Statement: The respondent burden for this information collection is minimal. The estimated number of respondents included in the biennial EEO-3 survey is 3,000 referral unions. Total biennial reporting is estimated to be 3,000 hours, and total biennial reporting and recordkeeping is 4,500 hours. Because referral local unions often have small management staffs, the use of filing the EEO-3 report by diskette or magnetic tape, although encouraged, has been less successful.
