Contacting Region 16 Staff during Phone System Transition

Region 16 is currently undergoing a transition of our phone system. If you are having difficulty reaching an individual board agent, please try the Region’s main line at
(817) 978-2921, the Houston Resident Office at (281) 228-5600, or the San Antonio Resident Office at (210) 472-6140.

Welcome to Region 16 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 the state of Texas from our main office in Fort Worth and resident offices in Houston and San Antonio. If you have questions or wish to file a charge or petition for election, please visit one of our offices 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.

This Regional Office participates in the NLRB’s Volunteer Field Examiners Program for undergraduate and graduate students.  The Volunteer FX interns assist in conducting unfair labor practice investigations, arranging representation elections, conducting elections and performing basic legal research. 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

The National Labor Relations Board has found that a Texas employer violated federal labor laws by refusing to hire four union job applicants who were engaged in a salting campaign at the employer’s central Texas job sites.

The employer, Cobb Mechanical Contractors, Inc., was ordered to offer immediate employment to the four applicants and make each whole for any loss of earnings and other benefits suffered as a result of the discriminatory act, which occurred in March, 2009.


In order to resolve allegations of unfair labor practices, a Texas company that installs and repairs fire sprinkler systems has agreed to set aside results of a union election and to permit the National Labor Relations Board to conduct a new election on Wednesday, February 23.
