On his first day in office as the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden this week terminated attorney Peter Robb from his position as General Counsel for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). News reports indicate that the Biden administration requested that Robb resign from the position and allow the newly inaugurated President to fill the post with his own pick, but Robb refused to do so. Robb, whose term runs through November 2021, is the first NLRB General Counsel to be terminated by a President since 1950, when President Harry Truman fired his own appointee, Counsel Robert Denham. Until a new appointee is named and confirmed by the Senate, Deputy General Counsel Alice Stock will serve as acting General Counsel. The composition of the 5-member NLRB is currently 3 republican members and 2 democrats, but that makeup is scheduled to change in August of this year when the term of republican member William Emanuel is set to expire. Biden also named existing democrat member Lauren McFerran Chairman of the NLRB effective immediately. Another battle over joint employer is coming soon.
