Last week, President Biden further prepped the transition within the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from red to blue dominance with his nomination of attorney David Prouty to fill the seat currently occupied by Trump appointee William Emmanuel. Although Emmanuel’s term on the NLRB does not expire until August, the President is obviously intent on moving fast to have his replacements confirmed and in line to take over the NLRB as soon as possible. Prouty, who is currently general counsel for Local 32BJ of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) in New York City, previously served as inside counsel for UNITE Here (a hotel workers union) and the Major League Baseball Players’ Association. He is also the 2nd appointment President Biden has made from the ranks of SEIU, architects of the “Fight for $15”. In late May, he nominated attorney Gwynne Wilcox, general counsel for yet another SEIU local to fill a currently vacant seat on the NLRB. Although none of Biden’s NLRB nominees (also including General Counsel-nominee Jennifer Abruzzo) have yet been confirmed by the U.S. Senate, we can expect it to happen quickly on the Senate floor.
