ABA Committee on Practice and Procedures/NLRA

Wednesday, Nov. 14, noon-2 p.m.
MBA, 20 West St., Boston

The annual meeting of the Regional Subcommittee of the ABA Committee on Practice and Procedure (P&P) under the NLRA will be held as a combined meeting with the MBA's Labor & Employment Section. The ABA's P&P Committee focuses on procedural labor law issues. This is an excellent opportunity to learn what the subcommittee does and to participate in its face-to-face discussions with NLRB officials.

The meeting will include two segments and you are invited to attend one or both:

  • Noon: Discussion of procedural concerns and questions that have arisen in practices before the board over the past year. A list of these issues will be prepared for discussion at the 1 p.m. session with Acting Regional Directors Elizabeth Gemperline, Ronald Cohen and their staff. Some of these issues may be presented to the NLRB's general counsel for presentation at the national midwinter meeting of the ABA P&P Committee under the NLRB.
  • 1 p.m.: A brief presentation by the acting regional directors and staff of Region 1 -- and by the regional director for Region 34 in Hartford -- concerning pending regional office, general counsel or board policy initiatives, including a Q&A session, a discussion of possible topics for the P&P midwinter meeting and a discussion of other committee activities.
