The EEOC issued regulations requiring referral local unions with 100 or more members to submit EEO–3 reports. The individual reports are confidential. The EEOC uses EEO–3 data to investigate charges of discrimination and for research. Burden Statement: The EEOC has updated its methodology for calculating annual burden to reflect the different staff that are responsible for preparing and filing the EEO–3. The EEOC now accounts for time to be spent biennially on EEO–3 reporting by business agents and administrative staff, as well as time spent by attorneys who, in a few cases, may consult briefly during the reporting process. As shown in Table 1 below, we estimate that Secretaries/Administrative Assistants and Business Agents will each spend 1 hour per report, and Legal Counsel will spend .05 hour per report. The estimated number of respondents included in the biennial EEO–3 survey is 1,075 referral unions, as this is the number of filers from the 2014 reporting cycle. Table 1, below, was utilized to quantify estimates of the annual burden of EEO–3 survey respondents. Burden hour cost was calculated using median hourly wage rates for administrative staff and legal counsel, and average hourly wage rates for labor union business agents.2 The estimated hour burden per report will be 2.05 hours, and the estimated total biennial respondent burden hours will be 2,203.75. The burden hour cost per respondent will be $84.54, and the estimated total biennial burden hour cost for all respondents will be $90,885.34. (See Table 1 for calculations.)
