Welcome to Region 18 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 states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and parts of Iowa from our regional office in Minneapolis, and subregional office in Milwaukee. 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.
On March 20, 2013, Regional Director Marlin Osthus presented to Trusight—An Employer’s Association in Plymouth, MN. The Regional Director provided an update on the status of the Board and a review of Board cases, including recent cases affecting employee rights at non-union Employers.
