That’s right, President Trump did recently provide a full 5-member complement of appointees to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in addition to new NLRB General Counsel Peter Robb – but now has a new vacancy to fill, again. The term of current NLRB Chairman Philip Miscimarra is set to expire one week from tomorrow, December 16, 2017. Miscimarra, who was first appointed to the Board by President Obama back in 2013, was elevated to the NLRB Chairmanship by President Trump in July of this year. Shortly after assuming the Chairmanship, Miscimarra advised the President that he would not accept an additional appointment after his term expires next week. Although President Trump has yet to officially nominate a new member to replace Miscimarra on the 5-member board, speculation is that the Trump administration is vetting John Ring, a partner in the Labor and Employment Practice at the DC office of the law firm of Morgan Lewis & Bocklus. We would expect the President to announce his nominee soon.
