ILR Consulting Violates Labor Law... Three Times

Under the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA), anti-union consultants must file a Form LM-20 report with the Department of Labor 30 days of being hired by an anti-union employer for the purposes of meeting directly with organizing employees. The reason this reporting standard exists is because workers and the public have the right to know when union-busters are hired to directly "persuade" workers.

On March 24, LaborLab documented three instances of ILR Consulting LLC violating the law. ILR Consulting LLC is a union-busting consultancy.

  • Over one year ago, on March 1, 2021, ILR Consulting was hired by the Pulau Corporation to bust the rights of workers organizing with IAM. ILR Consulting violated the LMRDA by failing to report their activities until March 23, 2022. ILR Consulting subcontracted some of the union-busting to David Burke, who LaborLab has also documented for violations of the law.
  • On August 3, 2021, ILR Consulting began targeting organizing workers on behalf of Heritage Construction & Materials. Again, ILR Consulting didn't report their activities to the Department of Labor until March 23, 2022.
  • And on September 29, 2021, ILR Consulting was hired by IMEX USA. However, once again, ILR Consulting violated the law by not reporting their activities until March of 2022. ILR Consulting subcontracted some of the union-busting to David Burke, again.

The LMRDA provides criminal penalties for a willful failure to file if prosecuted, but complaints must be filed first.
