National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Chairman Philip A. Miscimarra and General Counsel Richard F. Griffin, Jr. announced John D. Doyle, Jr. as the new Regional Director for the Agency’s Region 10 Office in Atlanta, Georgia, which includes a subregional office in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and resident offices in Birmingham, Alabama and Nashville, Tennessee. Region 10 is responsible for conducting elections, investigating unfair labor practice charges, and protecting the right of workers to act collectively to improve their wages and working conditions throughout the states of North Carolina and South Carolina, and parts of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. He succeeds Claude T. Harrell, Jr. who recently retired from the Agency.
Mr. Doyle joined the NLRB in 1995 as a Law Clerk in the Atlanta office. In 1996 he converted to Field Attorney and transferred to the Agency’s Birmingham resident office. He served in that office until 2010, when he was promoted to the position of Deputy Regional Attorney in the Baltimore Regional Office (Region 5). In 2014 Mr. Doyle was appointed to his most recent position of Deputy Assistant General Counsel in the Agency’s Division of Operations-Management in Washington, D.C.
A native of Tarrytown, New York, Mr. Doyle graduated from Colgate University in 1992 and Fordham University School of Law in 1995. He is admitted to the Bar in New York.
The NLRB is an independent federal agency enforcing the National Labor Relations Act, which guarantees the right of most private sector employees to organize, to engage in group efforts to improve their wages and working conditions, to determine whether to have unions as their bargaining representative, to engage in collective bargaining, and to refrain from any of these activities. It acts to prevent and remedy unfair labor practices committed by private sector employers and unions.
