New Year, New Way to File Form LM-30

Filed in DOL, Education by on January 18, 2013 0 Comments

If you are a union official who needs to file a Form LM-30 (Labor Organization Officer and Employee Report) this year, you can now file it using the same Office of Labor-Management Standards Electronic Forms System (EFS) your union has been using to file its annual financial report (Form LM-2, LM-3 or LM-4). Visit this page to learn more about EFS, and to view a PowerPoint tutorial on The Electronic Forms System (EFS) Guide to Preparing the LM-30. This tutorial explains all the nuts and bolts of filing your LM-30 with EFS – how to obtain a username and password, steps for completing the LM-30 in EFS, and instructions on saving, validating and submitting your LM-30. 

If you have already used EFS to file your union’s Form LM-2, LM-3 or LM-4, you know it’s easy to use and convenient, saving you time and effort. For help with the reporting requirements, EFS has context-sensitive help to save you from having to flip back and forth to the paper instructions; if you need additional help completing or submitting the form, there is a toll-free help desk available at 866-401-1109. And a built-in validation process will help ensure that you completely fill out the form. After you’ve validated your form and signed electronically, transmitting your LM-30 to OLMS is as easy as clicking a button. 

You can use your current EFS username and password if you have already filed a Form LM-2, LM-3 or LM-4 using EFS. If you have filed a LM-30 before (either manually or with EFS), but can’t remember your five-digit file number, EFS will help you look it up. If you have never used EFS before, it’s simple to obtain a user name and password. This EFS tutorial explains the process.

We hope you’ll take advantage of the new electronic Form LM-30 if you ever need to file the LM-30. If you’re not already an EFS user, this may be a good time to learn more about what it can do and how it can simplify filing. When you’re ready to begin, EFS can be accessed at
