On Wednesday, Jan. 23, the Massachusetts Bar Association's Labor & Employment Law Section hosted an open meeting featuring National Labor Relations Board Regional Director Jonathan B. Kreisberg.

Kreisberg, the head of the recently enlarged NLRB's Region 1, works with approximately 60 employees and oversees more than 1,300 cases. Focused on consolidating the Hartford and Boston offices into "one agency," Kreisberg's goals include agency efficiency in electronic filing/document submission and continued agency outreach via newsletters highlighting significant local and national cases.

Attendees also participated in a lively question and answer session, which included discussion on confidentiality concerns of employees, declines in union membership, Senate recess appointments by President Barack Obama and more.
