Re: Freedom ofInformation Act Request

Dear Mr. Heltzer:

Pursuant to the Freedom ofInformation Act ("FOIA"), 5 U.S.c. § 552, et. seq., as amended, we respectfully request the following documents from files maintained by the NLRB (the "Board"):

  1. Any and all communications between the NLRB General Counsel's office and the Board's members or their staffs related to initiatives banning card check approved by voters in Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah.
  2. Any and all communications between the NLRB General Counsel's office and the Board's members or their staffs related to the Complaint and Notice of Hearing issued by the NLRB against The Boeing Company, Case No. 19-CA-3243I, on April 20, 2011.
  3. Any and all communications between the Service Employees International Union and Board member Craig Becker or Mr. Becker's staff. Please note, however, that we do not seek routine filings by the Service Employees International Union in cases pending before the National Labor Relations Board.

As required by FOIA, please provide redacted copies of documents if the document contains some information which is subject to a FOIA exemption. If any documents are fully withheld based on a FOIA exemption, please explain the basis of such full withholding. We will assume financial responsibility for all necessary charges incurred, including costs of the search and duplication of files. Please contact me in advance at (202) 559-6428 if the cost will exceed $300.

Your prompt attention to this matter is appreciated. Please contact me as soon as possible at (202) 559-6428 if you are unable to fully process and respond to this request within the twenty (20) day response period provided for by the FOIA or if you have any questions related to this request. Although we believe our response is very narrowly targeted so that a full response can be provided in the 20-day response period, if some but not all of the requested documents cannot be provided in the 20-day response period, please provide a partial response with those documents that are available. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Respectfully submitted

Steven J. Law
