Welcome to Region 5 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 Maryland, the District of Columbia and parts of Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania from our offices in Baltimore and Washington D.C. 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. (Instructions for Access to the Baltimore Regional Office for Disabled Individuals.) 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.
The United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on Tuesday enforced the National Labor Relations Board’s order finding that a Maryland janitorial supply company prematurely declared impasse in negotiations with its employees’ union and unlawfully failed to reinstate workers after they went on strike to protest that declaration.
