Office of Public Affairs

Today, the National Labor Relations Board General Counsel Jennifer A. Abruzzo announced the appointment of Janet Little as the Assistant to the Regional Director of the NLRB’s Region 19-Seattle office. In her new position, Ms. Little will assist Regional Director Ronald K. Hooks in the administration and enforcement of the National Labor Relations Act in Alaska, Oregon, Washington, and parts of Idaho and Montana.

A native of South Dakota, Ms. Little received a Bachelor of Science in business administration from Northern Arizona University.

Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees, employers, and unions from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year. Region 19 serves areas in Alaska, Montana, Oregon, and Washington from its Regional Office in Seattle and Subregional Office in Portland.
