527 Spending

A union's 527 committee makes contributions to political candidates and other organizations for the purpose of influencing the outcome of an election. Unlike Political Action Committees, which are strictly regulated by the Federal Election Commission, 527s are regulated by the IRS. These committees are often considered a form of "soft money."

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).
