Office Information

Regional Director

Welcome to Region 3 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 most of New York state from our offices in Buffalo and Albany.

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.

News From the Region

In May 2013, the drivers at Hogan Transports, Inc. (Employer), a trucking company, began a union organizing campaign at their workplace in West Coxsakie, New York, with the assistance of Teamsters, Local 294, International Brotherhood of Teamsters (the Union).  A majority of employees signed union authorization cards and the Union filed a petition and sought to become the bargaining representative for the workers.

The National Labor Relations Board has ruled that a Phelps, New York, construction contractor violated federal labor law when it unilaterally stopped applying the terms and conditions of a collective-bargaining agreement reached between the Ironworkers union and an employers’ association to which the contractor belonged.

The Times Union of Albany has agreed to offer reinstatement to three employees and to pay more than $800,000 in backpay and interest to a total of 11 employees who were laid off by the newspaper in the fall of 2009 in order to settle a case taken up by the National Labor Relations Board.

In the first ruling of its kind, a National Labor Relations Board Administrative Law Judge has found that a Buffalo nonprofit organization unlawfully discharged five employees after they posted comments on Facebook concerning working conditions, including work load and staffing issues.  

An administrative law judge has found that supervisors at a Woodbridge, New York egg processing plant violated federal labor laws by interfering with a rerun NLRB-conducted election, and ordered that a third election be held. Charges were filed by the United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 342.
