Methodology
The Center for Union Facts obtained 2013-2021 spending data from all United Auto Workers LM filings with the Office of Labor Management Standards (OLMS), which covered approximately 16,000 different spending line-items. We first assigned one of ten different categories to cover spending line items of interest, and then flagged individual expenses for a detailed description at the bottom of each page. The inclusion of specific line items in the list below does not mean the spending is necessarily improper; members can make their own judgement on this question.
