The Labor-Management Relations Examiners (Field Examiners) carry out the
bulk of the investigative and election work of the Agency.  They must
gather and analyze facts pertinent to their assigned cases.  To accomplish
this, they must meet and talk with employees and their supervisors, shop
stewards, business agents, and other labor union officials, personnel
officers, directors of industrial relations, and other officers of 
business and industrial enterprises; and attorneys representing both 
labor and management.

Field Examiners recommend appropriate action on each case, including 
possible remedies.  When appropriate, they work with the parties 
concerned to obtain voluntary agreements or adjustments.  They also 
recommend further action when that becomes necessary and dismissal of 
cases found to

be without merit.
Field Examiners arrange and conduct elections among groups of employees 
(ranging in size from two to several thousand) to determine whether or

not they wish to be represented by a labor organization. They are called
upon to serve as Hearing Officers in disputed representation cases, taking
testimony and applying the rules of evidence regarding its admission.
Field Examiners must do all of these things while inspiring confidence in
the soundness of their judgment and respect for their impartiality.
