Office Information

Regional Director

Welcome to Region 25 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 parts of Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Kentucky from our regional office in Indianapolis and subregional office in Peoria. 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

The Board concluded that an aluminum company’s decision to bar striking employees from returning to work until they pledged not to engage in such strike activity again provided “strong evidence of animus toward the protected conduct of striking” and supported the Region’s theory that an employee was unlawfully discharged. 

After the Agency had secured a 10(j) injunctive order from the court, Region 25 approved a comprehensive non-Board settlement which resulted in a 3-year collective bargaining agreement, resolution of the unilateral changes and other ULPs, and provided for compensation to employees (including $678,000 in lump sum payments) and an increase in wages over the duration of the 3-year contract, all valued by the parties to be in excess of one million dollars.

National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce and General Counsel Richard F. Griffin, Jr. have announced the appointment of Nathaniel E. Strickler as Officer-in-Charge of the Agency's Subregional office in Peoria, Illinois (Subregion 33). In his new position, Mr. Strickler will assist Rik Lineback, Regional Director of the NLRB’s Indianapolis, IN office (Region 25),  in enforcing the National Labor Relations Act in Indiana,  and parts of Kentucky, northern Illinois and Iowa along the Mississippi River. 

National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce and Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon have announced the appointment of Debra L. Stefanik as Officer-in-Charge of the Agency's Subregional office in Peoria, Illinois (Subregion 33).  In her new position, Ms. Stefanik will assist Rik Lineback, Director of the NLRB’s Region 25 in Indianapolis, in enforcing the National Labor Relations Act in Indiana, 48 counties in central and northern Illinois, and 8 counties in Iowa along the Mississippi River.  

As part of an ongoing effort to improve efficiencies in its regional structure, the National Labor Relations Board is considering a pilot program that would consolidate Regional Offices in St. Louis, Missouri (Region 14) and Kansas City, Kansas (Region 17). The pilot would also move the sub-regional office in Peoria, Illinois from the jurisdiction of the St. Louis office to that of the regional office in Indianapolis, Indiana (Region 25).

No offices would be closed in the plan under consideration, but staff in the consolidated region would report to a single Regional Director.
