Washington, DC – The Regional Offices of the National Labor Relations Board will be conducting explanatory sessions, by teleconference, in order to answer questions and discuss the new modifications to the Agency’s representation case procedures. The modifications, scheduled to take effect May 31, 2020, include clarifications to procedures prior to an election that better ensure the opportunity for litigation and resolution of unit scope and voter eligibility issues. The changes also permit parties additional time to comply with the various pre-election requirements instituted in 2014.
Please contact your local NLRB office if you are interested in joining one of the outreach sessions.
Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees and employers, and unions from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year.
