If you have a concern or complaint regarding your employer or your collective bargaining organization (union) please be aware that our boards' jurisdictions cover only public sector employment related to organized labor issues.

If you are an employee of the State of Maryland, a public school system in Maryland, or a college or university in Maryland AND you are a part of a unit covered by collective bargaining, please contact the appropriate board listed to the left.  If your issue or complaint is against your employer, we recommend that you first contact your organization's union for guidance in addressing the issue.
