Welcome to Region 14 of the National Labor Relations Board. We conduct elections, investigate charges of unfair labor practices, and protect the rights of workers to act together from our main office in St. Louis, MO, and sub-regional office in Overland Park, KS. If you have questions or wish to file a charge or petition for election, please visit our office 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.
