Welcome to Region 22 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 northern New Jersey from our office in Newark. If you have questions or wish to file a charge or petition for election, please visit our office or call 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.
A hearing set for Oct. 5 at the NLRB Regional Office in Newark will examine objections to an election that asked more than 1,000 construction workers to choose representation by one of two unions or none at all. The outcome will affect all dockbuilders, pier carpenters, shorers, house movers, pile drivers, divers, tenders, foundation workers, drillers and marine constructors employed by members of the General Contractors Association of New York.
