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 28 serves areas in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas from its Regional Office in Phoenix and its Resident Offices in Albuquerque and Las Vegas.
Today, the National Labor Relations Board Acting General Counsel Peter Sung Ohr announced the appointment of Rachel Harvey as the Regional Attorney of the NLRB’s Regional office in Phoenix, Arizona (Region 28). In her new position, Ms. Harvey will assist Regional Director Cornele A. Overstreet in the administration and enforcement of the National Labor Relations Act in Arizona, New Mexico, the southern half of Nevada and southwest Texas.
