An annual report historically has been completed by the Labor Relations Board stating in detail the work it has done hearing and deciding cases and in other areas. This provides a benchmark for viewing caseloads, activities and other developments from year to year. This annual report is divided into two parts. The first part is a summary of general developments and activities of the Board. The second part is a more specific discussion of areas of Board jurisdiction. The Appendix on Caseload Statistics provides the basis for the bulk of statistics cited in the annual report itself.
