Meaning of NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD (NLRB) in English

NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD (NLRB)

U.S. government agency charged with administering the National Labor Relations Act (1935).

The three-member NLRB, appointed by the president, organizes elections to determine whether employees wish to be represented by a labour union in collective bargaining and monitors labour practices by employers and unions. It does not initiate investigations; its involvement must be sought by employers, individuals, or unions. Though it lacks enforcement power for its orders, it can prosecute cases in court.
