Drawing on their collective experience as an NLRB attorney, NLRB hearing officer and arbitrator, Director of the NLRB’s New York Regional Office, and Acting General Counsel of the Agency, the authors address each step in handling a case before the Board, including investigation, negotiation, settlement, representation issues, injunctions, deferral to arbitration, computing backpay, litigation tactics, and other issues.

The new Second Edition of Winning at the NLRB has been updated and completely revised with fresh insights on how to win cases before the NLRB and new content, including an easily accessible section on the cases that the NLRB has advised its staff are noteworthy, with a brief description of each case; a section on e-filing at the NLRB — what can and cannot be filed electronically; a section on the historical context of the National Labor Relations Act; extensive citations to recent NLRB and court decisions; and discussion of new procedural changes affecting investigations and hearings, together with discussion of the Administrative Law Judge manual.

Winning at the NLRB contains explanations of the law and gives specific strategic advice for both union and employer advocates. The authors present an expert perspective on why one strategy is better than another in a particular situation. They also include checklists and sample language to help in preparing a successful case. Appendix material, a table of cases, and an index are included for reference.
