We conduct elections, investigate charges of unfair labor practices, and protect the rights of workers to act together, serving the states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and parts of Iowa from our regional office in Minneapolis, subregional office in Milwaukee, and resident office in Des Moines.

We are also happy to provide speakers and materials to promote a greater understanding of the National Labor Relations Act.
Ozburn-Hessey Logistics has taken action to reinstate nine wrongfully discharged employees and cease anti-union activities in compliance with a January 29th order from the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee. District Judge John Fowlkes found that there was cause to believe Ozburn-Hessey had engaged in a series of unfair labor practices and granted the National Labor Relations Board’s request for relief in order to prevent irreparable harm to the terminated employees and continued misconduct by the Employer.
