Welcome to Region 19 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 the northwest from our main office in Seattle, a subregional office in Portland and a resident office in Anchorage. 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 for someone to 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.
Please join Region 19 to learn about important changes in the Board’s representation case procedures.
On December 15, 2014, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) published in the Federal Register its Final Rule amending its representation case procedures. The Final Rule will take effect on April 14, 2015, and will apply to all cases filed on or after that date.
