IEC Opposes Pearce Nomination to NLRB

President Trump has nominated Mark Pearce for a third term to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Both IEC and the business community strongly oppose Pearce’s nomination as he led the efforts to roll out some of the Board’s most controversial initiatives, such as the “ambush” election regulations, the Specialty Healthcare decision, and joint employer standard. Speculation is that Pearce’s nomination is part of a larger deal with Senate Democrats to get rid of President Trump’s other nominees that remain outstanding.
