National Labor Relations Board

The National Labor Relations Board is the federal agency that enforces the National Labor Relations Act. The National Labor Relations Act is a federal law that covers union representation and collective bargaining. The Postal Service and the APWU are covered by the NLRA.

The NLRB General Counsel works separately from the Board and prosecutes violations of the NLRA. The current NLRB General Counsel is Peter Robb, former partner at Downs, Rachlin and Marin in Vermont. He was appointed by President Trump on November 17, 2017.

The General Counsel delegates authority to 26 NLRB Regions across the United States. Each Region has a Regional Director who directs the investigation and prosecution of violations of the NLRA and implements the procedures of the NLRA. Click here to find your Regional Director.
