Excess bound volumes of NLRB Decisions and Orders will be available to the public

Since the enactment of the National Labor Relations Act, the Decisions and Orders of the National Labor Relations Board have been published in bound volumes. The Agency’s Region 13 office in Chicago, Illinois will be moving to a smaller location in February. Following this move, the Agency will retain only a limited number of complete sets of the Board Decisions and Orders. This is a public notice that, pursuant to Subchapter B of the Federal Management Regulation, I have determined that all bound volumes of the Board Decisions and Orders other than those expected to be retained and moved to the new Region 13 office location are excess personal property. Furthermore, the estimated cost of continued care and handling of these books will exceed the estimated proceeds from their potential sale. These books will therefore be ABANDONED on February 5, 2016.

The abandoned books can be claimed on a first come, first served basis by anyone, including members of the public and Agency employees, by sending an email to beginning at 11AM EDT on Wednesday, February 1, 2016. Successful claimants will be contacted via email in order to schedule an agreed upon time to pick up the books. Anyone who claims books will bear all responsibility for and expenses of removing and transporting the books from their location at the Chicago Regional Office.

Bids to purchase full or partial sets of the Decisions and Orders can also be made by sending an email to The minimum bid, regardless of the number of books bid for, is $47.00, which is the cost to the agency of processing a sale. Any volumes for which a valid bid was submitted prior to February 5, 2016, will be removed from the list of abandoned books available to be claimed.  All proceeds beyond the costs directly related to the sale will go to the U.S. Treasury.
