Just in time for Labor Day, the NLRB has released an app for both Apple and Android. This free app provides workers, employers and unions with information regarding their rights and obligations under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The app has sections describing the rights enforced by the NLRB, along with contact information for the agency’s regional offices across the country. The app also provides information on how the NLRB holds union elections.
Each month, an average of 2,000 unfair labor practice charges and 200 representation petitions are filed with the NLRB. In 2012, the NLRB collected more than $44 million in back pay or the reimbursement of fees, dues and fines. More than 1,200 employees were offered reinstatement as a result of NLRB enforcement efforts.
