Quorum, Heck a Fully Appointed NLRB?
by Michael Fox
Doubtful for awhile, but at least five nominees are now pending Senate action., with the announcement today of the appointment of two new members and the renomination of the current Chairman of the Board, Mark Pearce. President Obama Announces More Key Administration Posts.
Chairman Pearce is currently the only Board member who has been confirmed by the Senate. The two members of the Board serving under challenged recess appointments, Sharon Block and Richard Griffin, were earlier re-submitted to the Senate for confirmation.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out as the longer the Board continues without a confirmed quorum, the more uncertainty in labor relations is being sown.
