Description

The National Labor Relations Board, an independent Federal agency, initiates no cases: it acts only on those cases brought before it. All proceedings originate from filings by the major segment of the public covered by the National Labor Relations Act—employees, labor unions, and private employers who are engaged in interstate commerce. During fiscal year 2008, 25,890 cases were received by the Board.

Statistical highlights of NLRB’s casehandling activities in fiscal 2008 include:

  • The NLRB conducted 1,931 conclusive representation elections among some 137,812 employee voters, with workers choosing labor unions as their bargaining agents in 60 percent of the elections.
  • Although the Agency closed 26,845 cases, 12,213 cases were pending in all stages of processing at the end of the fiscal year. The closings included 23,391 cases involving unfair labor practice charges and 3,217 cases affecting employee representation and 237 related cases.
  • Settlements, avoiding formal litigation while achieving the goal of equitable remedies in unfair labor practice situations, numbered 8,379.
  • The amount of $68,104,783 in reimbursement to employees illegally discharged or otherwise discriminated against in violation of their organizational rights was obtained by the NLRB from employers and unions. This total was for lost earnings, fees, dues, and fines. The NLRB obtained 1,839 offers of job reinstatements, with 1,478 acceptances.
  • Acting on the results of professional staff investigations, which produced a reasonable cause to believe unfair labor practices had been committed, Regional Offices of the NLRB issued 1,108 complaints, setting the cases for hearing.
  • NLRB’s corps of administrative law judges issued 217 decisions, of which 29 were noncompliant election objection cases.
