EEO-3 (Local Union Report) Data Collection

The 2022 EEO-3 data collection is NOW OPEN.

The deadline for submitting and certifying the 2022 EEO-3 is Tuesday, December 6, 2022. To meet this deadline, the EEOC strongly encourages eligible filers to begin the filing process as soon as possible.

For the 2022 EEO-3 data collection, the EEOC is continuing its efforts to modernize the agency’s EEO data collections and improve the quality of data collected by the agency. The EEOC is also improving the filing process for filers by making it more user-friendly and streamlining functions within the EEO-3 Online Filing System, including additional self-service options and a new Filer Support Team Message Center.

The new Message Center allows filers to submit their requests for assistance to the Filer Support Team within the EEO-3 Online Filing System, as well as update requests with new information, terminate requests, and track the status of requests. It also provides filers with more self-service referencing capabilities to quickly connect to relevant materials addressing their issues. With the implementation of this new tool, all filer inquiries regarding the 2022 EEO-3 data collection must be submitted through the Filer Support Team’s Message Center.

Filers should visit the dedicated EEO-3 website at to access the EEO-3 Online Filing System and to find the latest filing updates and helpful resource materials (e.g., Instruction Booklet, User’s Guide, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), Fact Sheets). Filers needing additional assistance may learn how to access the Filer Support Team Message Center on the EEO-3 website at
