As part of its continuing efforts to improve its operations and increase the effectiveness of its services, the FLRA today announced changes in the jurisdiction of its Regional Offices. The changes, which are effective October 1, 1996, cover cases arising in North Dakota, Tennessee, New Mexico, Alaska, Delaware, West Virginia and parts of Pennsylvania and Missouri. An updated Regional Office listing is on the back page.
The Federal Labor Relations Authority is an independent agency that administers the labor-management relations program for over 1.9 million Federal employees world-wide, over 1.3 million of whom are exclusively represented in more than 2,200 bargaining units. The FLRA's seven Regional Offices, which are under the direction and supervision of the FLRA's General Counsel, investigate, settle and prosecute unfair labor practice charges, process representation petitions and supervise elections.
