National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)


Definition: The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is the federal agency that administers the National Labor Relations Act, the primary law governing relations between unions and employers in the private sector.

National Labor Relations Act
The NLRA protects workers who form, join, support, or assist labor unions, and protects groups of workers (two or more employees) who engage in protected concerted activities without a union seeking to modify their wages or working conditions. The Act protects both non-union and union employees against employer and union discrimination based on union-related activities.

Filing a NLRB Claim
The National Labor Relations Board investigates unfair labor practice allegations made by employees, unions, and employers. Union members or employers who wish to file an unfair labor practice charge should first contact an Information Officer at the NLTN regional office in the jurisdiction of the workplace where the alleged violation occurred, for more information about the process.
