Office of Public Affairs


Today, General Counsel Jennifer A. Abruzzo announced the appointment of Suzanne Sullivan as the Regional Director for the Agency’s Region 22 office. With a Regional Office in Newark, New Jersey, Region 22 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 Northern New Jersey.

“Suzanne has played a vital and critical role in ably enforcing our statute during her 32-year career at the Agency,” said General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo. “I am sure that she will continue to perform in an exemplary manner as Regional Director.” 

A native of Easton, Pennsylvania, Ms. Sullivan graduated in 1983 from Rutgers University. In 1989, she received her Juris Doctor from St. John’s Law School.

Ms. Sullivan began her career with the Agency as a Field Attorney in Region 2–Manhattan in 1989.  She was promoted to Supervisory Attorney in 2012 and has served as Regional Attorney since 2019.

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 22 serves areas in New Jersey from its Regional Office in Newark.
