The Trump administration has been informed by the broader business community that it does not want to see NLRB Director Mark Gaston Pearce reappointed to the post when his term expires next month. Gaston Pearce, who served as Chairman of the National Labor Relations Board for 6 years under President Obama from 2011 – 2017, has been a staunch anti-business director throughout his tenure at the agency. First appointed to the NLRB in 2010, Gaston Pearce was re-appointed in 2015 and wrote the majority opinion expanding the joint employer definition in the Browning-Ferris case. Unless re-appointed by President Trump, Gaston Pearce will be off the board come August 27, 2018.
