Office Information

Regional Director

Welcome to Region 25 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 parts of Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Kentucky from our regional office in Indianapolis and subregional office in Peoria. 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.

SEEKING VOLUNTARY FIELD EXAMINER INTERNS
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 NLRB has published new rules concerning the processing of representation petitions filed on or after April 14, 2015. Region 25 will be conducting two presentations highlighting the changes that have been implemented by these new rules. (Click title heading for more details)

The Board concluded that an aluminum company’s decision to bar striking employees from returning to work until they pledged not to engage in such strike activity again provided “strong evidence of animus toward the protected conduct of striking” and supported the Region’s theory that an employee was unlawfully discharged. 

After the Agency had secured a 10(j) injunctive order from the court, Region 25 approved a comprehensive non-Board settlement which resulted in a 3-year collective bargaining agreement, resolution of the unilateral changes and other ULPs, and provided for compensation to employees (including $678,000 in lump sum payments) and an increase in wages over the duration of the 3-year contract, all valued by the parties to be in excess of one million dollars.

National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce and General Counsel Richard F. Griffin, Jr. have announced the appointment of Nathaniel E. Strickler as Officer-in-Charge of the Agency's Subregional office in Peoria, Illinois (Subregion 33). In his new position, Mr. Strickler will assist Rik Lineback, Regional Director of the NLRB’s Indianapolis, IN office (Region 25),  in enforcing the National Labor Relations Act in Indiana,  and parts of Kentucky, northern Illinois and Iowa along the Mississippi River. 

An Indianapolis concrete supplier found to have violated labor laws in the past has been ordered by a federal court to reinstate 11 employees who were replaced after they staged a week-long strike.

Under the consent agreement and injunction order sought by the NLRB and approved April 26 by Judge William T. Lawrence of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, the company must rehire the employees, withdraw letters saying they had been permanently replaced, and prominently post a copy of the order at the workplace.
