By Edwin S. Hopson

On September 26, 2017, William J. Emanuel, a Republican,  was sworn in as a Member of the National Labor Relations Board.  Emanuel’s term will end August 27, 2021. The Senate had confirmed his nomination by a vote of 49-47 after Democrats filibustered his appointment.

Prior to his appointment, Emanuel was a shareholder with Littler Mendelson, P.C., a law firm representing management in labor and employment matters.  He had also practiced labor law with several other firms.

With this new Member, the NLRB is once again at full strength – three Republicans and two Democrats.
