On June 27, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced in a press release that it is contemplating closing the agency’s San Diego office. The San Diego office handles cases and proceedings arising in Southern California and falls under NLRB Region 21 out of Los Angeles.

 

The general counsel’s office has invited public comments regarding the potential closure to be submitted to the agency via emails to feedback@nlrb.gov by July 31.

 

It was noted in the press release that “This proposal is being considered in connection with the Agency’s ongoing efforts to reduce costs by decreasing office space and by taking advantage of new technologies and workplace innovations, which enable employees to work remotely.” In fact, this would be just the latest in a wave of recent office closures by the agency resulting from ongoing consolidation efforts. We’ll see how the NLRB’s continued restructuring plays out.
