Welcome to Region 10 of the National Labor Relations Board. We conduct elections, investigate charges of unfair labor practices, and protect the rights of workers to act together, serving a large area of the southeastern United States from our main office in Atlanta, subregional office in Winston-Salem, NC, and resident offices in Birmingham, AL, and Nashville, TN. If you have questions or wish to file a charge or petition for election, please visit one of our offices or call and ask for the Information Officer on duty. We can arrange to have someone speak with you in the language of your choice. We are also happy to provide speakers and materials to promote a greater understanding of the National Labor Relations Act.

The election was sought jointly by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union. A total of 1324 workers were eligible to vote.
