President Appoints Philip A. Miscimarra NLRB Acting Chairman

Source: NLRB

Washington, DC -- President Donald J. Trump has named Board Member Philip A. Miscimarra Acting Chairman of the National Labor Relations Board.

“It is an honor to be named NLRB Acting Chairman by the President,” Miscimarra said. “I remain committed to the task that Congress has assigned to the Board, which is to foster stability and to apply the National Labor Relations Act in an even-handed manner that serves the interests of employees, employers and unions throughout the country.”

Miscimarra also recognized former Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce for his service on the Board. Pearce will continue as a Board Member in a term expiring on August 27, 2018 and has served as a Board Member since 2010 including Chairman since 2011. The Board also currently includes Board Member Lauren McFerran, whose term expires on December 16, 2019. Two Board Member seats are currently vacant.

Miscimarra has served as a Board Member since August 7, 2013. He was nominated by President Obama on April 9, 2013, and he was approved unanimously by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions on May 22, 2013. He was confirmed by the Senate on July 30, 2013, and his current term expires on December 16, 2017.

Before joining the Board, Acting Chairman Miscimarra was a Senior Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Business School in the Wharton Center for Human Resources, and a labor and employment law partner with Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP in Chicago. He also previously worked as a labor and employment attorney with Seyfarth Shaw LLP, Murphy Smith & Polk PC (now the Chicago office of Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, PC), and Reed Smith Shaw & McClay (now Reed Smith LLP).

Miscimarra received his Juris Doctor from the University of Pennsylvania Law School; a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Business School; and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Duquesne University.

4. Obama has had a good history with the NLRB


It was a compromise to have a FULL five member board. The board had been short of the required minimum three members. Because of that it could not take action. Employers could do anything they wanted without having to worry about that pesky NLRB.

Because of W, there had not been a full board in over 10 years at that time.

A quick goggle shows how often Miscimarra has been in the minority on most issues.


Senate approves five NLRB nominees: http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2013/07/30/Senate-approves-five-NLRB-nominees/UPI-54201375227559/?st_rec=22201385059530

WASHINGTON, July 30 (UPI) -- The U.S. Senate voted Tuesday to confirm five executive branch nominees to the National Labor Relations Board.

The votes were carried out as part of a deal in which Senate Republicans agreed to abandon filibusters on some Obama administration nominees in return for Democrats' agreement not to deploy the so-called nuclear option -- a change in Senate rules subject most issues to a simple majority vote.

Tuesday's vote confirming the nominations of Harry Johnson III, Philip Miscimarra, Nancy Schiffer, Kent Hirozawa and Mark Pearce means the NLRB will have a quorum and will be able to conduct business after Aug. 27, when Pearce's term as chairman of the board expires, The Hill reported.

Pearce, Schiffer and Hirosawa are Obama appointees. Johnson and Miscimarra were selected by Republicans.
