Senator Alexander Votes to Confirm Bill Emanuel to NLRB

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.
