The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. Sec. 552, requires federal agencies to disclose records after receiving a written request for them, except for records protected from disclosure by certain provisions of the FOIA. This site is designed to familiarize you with the specific procedures for making a FOIA request to the National Labor Relations Board. The site also includes descriptions of the types of records maintained by the NLRB, and directly links to a number of records available over the Internet.
The NLRB currently offers the NLRB Guide, a mobile app that provides employers, employees and unions with information regarding their rights and obligations under the National Labor Relations Act.
Members of the public have the right to attend and observe public meetings that are subject to the Sunshine Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552b, and the NLRB is committed to the Sunshine Act’s promise of open government. However, all or part of a meeting may be closed for consideration of matters exempted under the Sunshine Act, such as recommendations for litigation, litigation strategy, adjudication of cases and other specified matters.
