The Raudabaugh Report (“Report”) highlights current fiscal year output of National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) published decisions of binding precedent. Unpublished NLRB decisions are not binding precedent except with respect to the parties in the specific case.
The Report shows output by three Board Member panels and by the full Board as well as the Board Member’s and panel’s percentage of published decisions.
NLRB published decisions are enumerated by their originating intake NLRB Region and total NLRB published decisions are reported by month for fiscal and calendar years.
Former Member Schiffer’s term ended December 16, 2014. Panel decisions in which Schiffer participated are indicated in brackets [ ]. Full, five Member decisions include those in which Schiffer participated but to avoid double-counting for total decisions, ignore the bracketed  indicating Schiffer’s inclusion.
