Overview of This Information Collection

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.

Responses: 3,000.

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

Cost to Respondents: $67,500.

Federal Cost: $50,000 (Annualized).

Number of Forms: 1.

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 since 1986). The individual reports are confidential.

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) and other government agencies.

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. Since each union files one EEO-3 report, the number of responses is 3,000. The biennial reporting is estimated to take 3,000 hours, and total biennial reporting and recordkeeping is 4,500 hours.
