The Ambien alternative a/k/a NLRB FY11 operations statistics


The Acting General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board recently released a 10-page summary of operations for FY 2011. But, you can find a short summary here.

Here are some stats that caught my attention (relatively speaking, of course):

  • In FY 2011, the Regional Offices issued 1,342 complaints as compared to 1,243 in FY 2010.
  • The Regional Offices recovered $60,514,922 on behalf of employees as backpay or reimbursement of fees, dues, and fines in FY 2011, compared to $86,557,684 in FY 2010.
  • In FY 2011, the median time to proceed to an election from the filing of a petition was 38 days, the same rate achieved in FY 2010, “and well below our target median of 42 days.” (NLRB’s words, not mine. And they want to “streamline” the election process because…)
