New Nominee Announced for the National Labor Relations Board

On June 19th, President Trump announced his intention to nominate attorney Marvin Kaplan, a Republican, to the National Labor Relations Board. Kaplan currently serves as Chief Counsel of the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. Previously, Kaplan worked with the U.S. House of Representatives.

The NLRB, which oversees union elections and disputes between employers, workers, and unions, has had a Democrat majority for close to a decade. Currently the Board has two Democrats, one Republican, and two vacancies. Kaplan would serve the remainder of a five-year term expiring August 27, 2020. The term of the Board’s only Republican, Chairman Phil Miscimarra, expires in December 2017.

If confirmed as a Member of the NLRB, Kaplan and other Board Members will review, and make rulings on, the NLRB’s litigated cases, as well as consider rules and regulations for the National Labor Relations Board in furtherance of the Agency’s role to enforce the National Labor Relations Act.
