Catherine A. Terrell

Before joining Pyle Rome, Catherine worked at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for more than 13 years, most recently in its Region 01, Boston, Mass., and Hartford, Conn. offices. In Region 01 as Senior Field Attorney, Catherine was charged with investigating some of the Region’s most complex unfair labor practice charges and litigated complaints on behalf of the NLRB’s General Counsel before Administrative Law Judges and, when seeking injunctive relief, in District Court. Catherine ran significant union elections, negotiated stipulated election agreements, drafted representation decisions on behalf of the Region, and served as the hearing officer in representation disputes. Catherine also served as Region 01’s Outreach Coordinator, collaborating with labor community stakeholders to educate unions, employers, bar associations, community groups, and the public about the- sometimes shifting- policies and precedents of the National Labor Relations Act.

Catherine was honored to be elected President of Local 01 of the NLRBU, representing her colleagues in negotiations and dispute resolution proceedings with the Region.
