Senate HELP Committee Holds NLRB Confirmation Hearings

Posted in: Capital Watch

On July 13, 2017, the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions held a confirmation hearing for President Trump’s two nominees to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Marvin Kaplan and William Emanuel were nominated by the president in June 2017.

Kaplan currently serves as counsel on the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission and was a former staff counsel for the House Education and Workforce Committee. Emanuel is a long time management-side labor employment lawyer who currently works for the firm of Littler Mendelson; a firm which concentrates exclusively on employment and labor law. Each will be voted on by the committee on July 19, 2017. 

IEC submitted a letter of support to the committee for Kaplan and Emanuel in advance of the hearing and urges members to write their Senators to urge their confirmation.
