    Default NLRB Nominees Expected to Undo Obama-Era Rulings

    Oh yes, more evidence of Trump looking out for the working man!

    National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decisions on joint employers, micro-unions and employee handbooks might be reversed if the Senate confirms two newly nominated candidates.

    William Emanuel, nominated by President Donald Trump on June 27, and Marvin Kaplan, nominated June 20, represent solid Republican votes and, together with NLRB Chairman Philip Miscimarra, will give Republicans a 3-2 edge on the board, according to Michael Chamberlin, an attorney with Winston & Strawn in Los Angeles. There will be enough votes to overturn Obama-era opinions once cases addressing joint employers, micro-unions and handbooks reach the board. But that will take a while, so "don't expect a giant change quickly," Chamberlin added.

    Nominees' Qualifications

    Emanuel, a Littler attorney in Los Angeles, is "one of the deans of the management side of the labor law bar in Los Angeles. You will not find anyone more experienced or qualified for the board," said Scott Witlin, an attorney with Barnes & Thornburg in Los Angeles.

    Kaplan currently is with the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission, which resolves appeals of Occupational Safety and Health Administration penalties, and before that was workforce policy counsel with the U.S. House of Representatives Education and the Workforce Committee. He has a "different area of expertise" but will be able to provide insights into administrative law and Congress' workings, Witlin said.

    NLRB Nominees’ Records Raise Serious Concerns

    President Trump has chosen two nominees for the National Labor Relations Board whose track records raise serious concerns about their commitment to the rights and protections guaranteed by our labor laws and enforced by the NLRB. Marvin Kaplan has never practiced labor law, and his experience comes from crafting legislation for politicians to rig the rules against working people. William Emanuel has a long record of practicing labor law on behalf of employers, most recently at one of the most infamous union-busting law firms in the country. On their face, the résumés of both nominees appear to be in direct conflict with the mission of the NLRB.

    The decisions and actions of the NLRB have real consequences for working people. A fair and functioning NLRB can protect the freedom of working people to negotiate a fair return on our work so we can provide for our families. A partisan, ideologically driven NLRB can further empower corporations and CEOs to take away our freedoms at work. For these reasons, it is critical that senators closely scrutinize both nominees and ask the tough questions that will root out possible conflicts of interest and show whether they have the experience, temperament and fairness required of nominees to these important jobs. The stakes for working families are too high for them not to.
