October 14, 2013, Phoenix, AZ – AVTranz today announced that it has been awarded a contract with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for court reporting and transcription services. The region covers all of the Western United States including Alaska. AVTranz will provide professional Digital Court Reporters to capture the official record of hearings and produce verbatim transcripts to be provided in a 1, 3 or 10-day turnaround as required by participants.

“The National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency vested with the authority to safeguard employees’ rights to organize and determine whether to have a union as their collective bargaining representative. The Agency also acts to prevent and remedy unfair labor practices committed by private sector employers and unions, as well as cases arising from the United States Postal Service.”

NLRB Administrative Law Judges conduct hearings and issue decisions based on complaints of unfair labor practices by employers or labor unions. In 2012, 1,314 formal complaints were filed resulting in more than 175 hearings being conducted. Formal hearings can last from one day to several weeks.

“AVTranz has provided digital reporting and transcription services to the NLRB in several regions since 2010.” said Steve Townsend, AVTranz’ CEO. “We are pleased that the NLRB concluded that our performance and pricing deserved a significantly expanded award this year.”

Unlike other court reporting firms, AVTranz uses state of the art digital audio and video recording technology exclusively to capture the official record of proceedings. Digital recordings are immediately uploaded to AVTranz’ secure servers, and within minutes, transcription can be assigned to US-based professional transcriptionists specifically skilled in courtroom and hearing room proceedings. Townsend went on to say that “expansion of the NLRB contract to a much larger geographic area, combined with the efficiencies created by an exclusively digital process, positions AVTranz perfectly for further growth throughout the region.”

The contract was expected to begin on October 1, 2013. However, the U.S. government shutdown caused commencement of services to be delayed until government operations resume.
