Advisory and Consulting for Labor Unions

At Buchbinder, we have an extensive background working with labor unions. For more than 60 years, we have been providing a variety of advisory and consulting services for labor unions. Our partners know the challenges officers contend with regard to the ever-changing regulations and requirements from the Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service. We are fully aware of all the unique challenges labor unions face to maintain fiduciary responsibility to their members and the facets that can affect your tax reporting requirements.

Our advisory and consulting practice has led us to work with labor unions in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., as well as throughout the United States. We work with labor unions on the local, state, national and international level.

What We Do

We provide a variety of advisory and consulting services, including:

  • Compliance reviews
  • Agreed-upon procedures
  • Fair share dues computations
  • Internal control reviews and evaluations
  • Cost allocation studies for shared expenses
  • Operational and systems reviews
  • Expert witness services
  • Valuation, litigation support and forensic services

Labor unions often ask us to review their financial records and help improve their accounting processes. We often get called to speak to their business agents at union events on matters of expenses, preparing expense reports, proper documentation and filing, reporting requirements, interpretations of law, and compliance with DOL regulations. We also speak at forums, conferences and other industry events addressing labor union leaders to provide educational services.

At Buchbinder, we take pride in our ability to be accessible to our clients and are always available at their request. Our advisory and consulting practice is geared towards your needs. We are responsive and strive to accommodate your schedule. We value our long held client relationships and are here to serve you with confidence.
