The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is moving forward with plans to close its office in Anchorage, Alaska – the lone physical office in that state. This follows an announcement by the agency earlier this year that it was contemplating such a move. While the physical office is closing, the NLRB will continue to have at least one agent located in the state to process cases. The office will close on Dec. 29, 2017. The NLRB has been considering closing other offices as well, including ones in San Diego, California, and Little Rock, Arkansas. According to the NLRB, all of the potential moves are part of an ongoing effort to reduce costs. We’ll see how these potential closures affect operations at the agency.
