On June 27th, President Trump announced the selection of William Emanuel, an experienced management-side labor attorney in private practice, for the second of two vacancies on the National Labor Relations Board. The NLRB oversees and adjudicates union elections and disputes between employers, workers, and unions. It also enacts rules and regulations in furtherance of its role to enforce the National Labor Relations Act. As with last week’s nomination of Marvin Kaplan, the nomination will proceed to the Senate for confirmation proceedings.
If confirmed, the two Republican nominees, along with Chairman Philip Miscimarra, would shift control of the NLRB from Democrat to Republican. The Senate confirmation vote is expected to take place within the next few months.
