Volunteer Interns will work directly with agents and report to a supervisor who will guide them in handling case work and investigations. Interns may be briefed by senior officials from throughout the Region and Agency about the NLRB and the NLRA. Interns will be asked to produce written work products summarizing the results of investigations along with recommendations.  The Agency will work closely with participating schools to ensure class credit where permitted or desired and will provide on-the-job training as well as training on the NLRB through live and video presentations of the Agency’s Summer Intern Program and regularly scheduled Board Agent training.  Please click on the following link: Student Positions - Pathways and volunteer for more information.    

News From the Region

National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce and General Counsel Richard F. Griffin, Jr. announced their selection of Charles L. Posner to serve as Regional Director of the Agency’s Region 5 office in Baltimore, Maryland, which includes a resident office in Washington, DC.  Mr. Posner will be responsible for enforcement of the nation’s primary labor law covering private sector employees in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and parts of Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.   

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.


An NLRB Administrative Law Judge has issued a decision finding that a Maryland manufacturer of janitorial products violated federal labor laws by breaking off negotiations with its employees’ union, and by refusing to reinstate striking workers when they offered to return.
