Senator Lamar Alexander released the following statement after casting his vote to confirm Bill Emanuel to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB):
“Filling this final vacant seat on the National Labor Relations Board will help restore the board to its intended purpose of acting as a neutral umpire after years of playing the role of advocate. Bill Emanuel will help bring balance to the board and stability to our nation’s workplaces.”
With a 3-2 majority, Republicans will hold their first NLRB majority since 2007. Mr. Emanuel is an attorney who has previously represented clients before the NLRB.
