Forms Used at the MLRB

The Board has created forms to enable individuals, employers or unions to request MLRB services regarding public sector collective bargaining. Further information on these services and the requirements of each form can be found in the relevant chapter of the MLRB Rules.

Although we do not have forms that can be submitted electronically, you can fill these forms out on your computer and then print them out for signatures.
