In accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, and after consultation with General Services Administration (GSA), I have determined that renewal of the Labor Research Advisory Council is in the public interest in connection with the performance of duties imposed on the Department of Labor.
The Council will advise the Commissioner of Labor Statistics regarding the statistical and analytical work of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, providing perspectives on these programs in relation to the needs of the labor unions and their members.
Council membership and participation in the Council and its subcommittees are broadly representatives of union organizations of all sizes of membership, with national coverage that reflects the geographical, industrial, and occupational sectors of the economy.
The Council will function solely as an advisory body and in compliance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act. The Charter is being filed simultaneously herewith with the Library of Congress and the appropriate congressional committees.
Interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding renewal of the Labor Research Advisory Council. Such comments should be addressed to: Deborah P. Klein, Associate Commissioner, Office of Publications and Special Studies, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Labor, Postal Square Building, 2 Massachusetts Avenue, NE., Washington, DC 20212, telephone: 202-691-5900.Start Signature
