The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is an independent agency of the U.S. government that protects employees’ rights to organize and to decide whether to be represented by a union. The Board also adjudicates labor disputes. The Board therefore conducts elections, investigates charges of unfair labor practices, tries to settle unfair labor practice cases, decides these cases if no settlement can be reached, and enforces orders.
