Unions representing U.S. Postal Service employees became subject to the LMRDA with the passage of the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970.
The agency was originally formed as the Bureau of Labor-Management Reports in 1959. It was renamed the Labor-Management Services Administration in 1963, and the Office of Labor-Management Standards in 1984.
